How to make a hat
As already mentioned, a candy suit for the New Year may consist of both a dress and a blouse with a skirt, shorts or trousers, but in all versions there must be a hat.
It is done as follows:
- Measure the circumference of the child’s head at its widest point.
- Cut a strip of drawing paper or cardboard that folds easily and does not break, that is, not corrugated from the box. You can choose the height at your discretion, so that the head-piece looks beautiful on the child's head. The minimum is usually 10 cm. Take the length in accordance with the measured head circumference plus the allowance for gluing. Usually about 3 cm is added. If there is no strip of the desired length and width, a narrow strip can be glued from the back of the head.
- Roll up the strip and glue overlap. You can use a stapler for greater strength.
- For decorative purposes, it is necessary to glue the surface with a beautiful paper or at least just a suitable color. It makes sense to do this step, if you wrap the blank you will be a transparent material, if not, leave the brown cardboard as it is.
- Take the prepared cloth. Try on what size flap you need.
- Put the prepared material in one or several layers (it is possible to make a blank from several flaps of different shades, stacked one upon the other).
- Wrap the cardboard ring so that the loose ends remain on one side, which will be the tip of the headdress.
- Tie loose fabric with a satin ribbon or a beautiful braid.
- Sew on the fabric "wrapper" decorative items. If the material is used transparent, decorations can be pasted, on the contrary, on a cardboard base. Use candy-shaped elements cut from colored paper, real small candies, beads, circles - in one word, what is on hand or seems to you suitable.
How to make decorative candy
Whatever way you make a candy suit with your own hands, you can decorate it with the help of an additional accessory - a big candy that a girl can pick up or, if you attach a strap, wear it as an original handbag. You can make candy from foam, cardboard box of suitable size and shape or from a sheet of cardboard.
The work is done as follows:
- Cut a piece of foam of a suitable size. If the thickness is small, make a billet of two identical thin. If you have a suitable box - just prepare it. If there is no foam or box, take a piece of cardboard and roll out of it a tube, as they did for the cap, glue the seam.
