Everyone claims to love Shark Week, but what are we really doing to show — to prove! — our unbridled obsession? Just watching info-packed TV segments about their teeth and taxonomy? Psha!
Demonstrate your palpable fandom by sporting this absolutely killer shark hat. It’s the only way, really.
2 sheets of large gray construction paper
1 sheet of white paper
Sharknado playing in the background (because: obviously)
Instructions (detailed after the collage):
Take one sheet of gray paper and fold it in half, then fold it in half again.
Open the paper up halfway, then fold the corners in toward the middle as though you were making a traditional sailor’s hat.
Take your completed sailor’s hat and fold the ends over. Once you’ve done that, tape the loose pieces down with double-sided tape. Now place the hat aside.
Grab the second sheet of gray paper, fold it in half, and draw the outline of a shark (now the fun starts!). Cut it out when you’re finished. You should have two identical sharks.
Making sure your two shark silhouettes match up, cover one shark completely with double-sided tape. Cover just the head of the second shark in double-sided tape. Tape the sharks to the top of the hat — they should match up.
Put that aside and grab the white paper. Fold it in half and start cutting out the teeth, making sharp triangles along the edge. When you’re done, tape the teeth to the inside of the hat.
Cut out circles to make the eyes and tape to the hat. Draw in the eyes with marker.
Use the double-sided tape on a few of the teeth, then shake red glitter over the tape.
Turn up Sharknado in the background and find a friend to rock your killer hat with.
