If you are a Dr. Seuss fan like we are, you may be looking for a fun and easy craft to celebrate his upcoming birthday. When you think of Dr. Seuss, what is the first thing that you usually think of. I almost always immediately think of the Cat in the Hat.

My daughter loves that mischievous cat and all thing Dr. Seuss, so I thought that this simple yarn wrapped Cat in the Hat inspired hat would be perfect.
What you will need:
A cardboard tube
Red & white yarn
White foam sheet
Cut a small slit on one end of a cardboard tube. Tuck the end of a long strand of white yarn into the slit.
Wrap the yarn around the toilet paper tube covering about 1/4 of it. Use a little dab of glue to hold the end in place.
Wrap a long strand of red yarn around the tube above the white yarn and alternate white and red yarn until you get to the top. Cut another slit at the top and tuck the end into the slit. You can use a little glue to hold the yarn in place. Cut a circle out of white foam that is a little bit larger than the tube and then glue the tube in the center of the foam circle. Let the glue dry.
When our craft was finished, my daughter wanted to wear it on her head, but was upset that it wouldn’t stay. I flipped the hat over and used a glue gun to glue two foam strips to the bottom of the hat, making sure to leave the centers of the strips unglued so that I could slide a thin headband through it. I glued a foam circle to the top of the hat to close it up at top.
My daughter has been sporting her hat for the past few days. She loves it.
