Pumpkin Judge's Hat
Total Time 30 minutes or less Ages school-age

To give the judges (we usually have at least three) the ceremonial seriousness their position requires, make our Pumpkin Judge's Hat. If other partygoers want their own -- and they probably will! -- they're a snap to make.

What you'll need

  • 3 sheets of 20- by 30-inch orange tissue paper
  • Tape (brown or green)
  • Green poster board, cut to 26 by 3 inches
  • 2 paper clips
  • Markers
  • Bubble packaging (optional)

How to make it

  1. Pumpkin Hat     - Step 1

    Fold 1 sheet of orange tissue paper in half to make a 20- by 15-inch rectangle. Gather and bunch 1 long edge of the folded sheet using pleats and tape it to the poster board strip so it covers about 10 inches (see diagrams).

  2. Repeat with 2 additional sheets, overlapping the edges by a couple inches.

  3. Pumpkin Hat - Step 3

    Wrap the band around the judge's head with the tape side in and paper-clip the ends to secure. Gather the tissue paper along the top edge and tape it together tightly, wrapping it with brown or green tape to resemble a stem. Cut off the excess paper above the stem.

  4. Write "Judge" on the band with markers. Stuff with bubble packaging for shape, if desired.
