Just in time for Halloween and as part of our continuing commitment to turn hats into better hats we present the DIY Thor Inspired Viking helmet hat.
This retro Thor style hat couldn’t be any easier and in most cases you won’t even need to alter the hat!
You will need:
2 – 9″ x 12″ sheets off white I used Fresh Linen Felt
2″ Velcro AKA Hook and Loop I used Grey
Grey knit winter hat
Thor Hat Wings Template (at the end of this post)
Begin but cutting 4 of the larger wing and 2 of the smaller wing shapes from felt.
Stack the smaller wing over one of the larger ones make sure they mirror each other.
Sew along rounded portion with a running stitch and matching thread.
Place hook (scratchy) side of Velcro to the remaining large wing shapes and stitch down. Your wings should be facing two different directions as shown.
Match up large pieces so that Velcro is on one side and the smaller wing on the other, stitch around with an overcast stitch.
You should find that the felt wing shapes stick onto the hat without having to attach the loop (soft side) part of the velcro to the hat.
If your pieces don’t stick on simply try hat on and mark for placement.
Stitch soft side of velcro to hat where desired.
Because one photo of me in a Thor hat is all you really need.
Because they are attached with Velcro you can remove the wings to wash or dry the hat or to use on another hat (Golden Snitch Anyone?!)
