Paper Bishop Miter or "Pope Hat"

With so many feasts that celebrate a bishop or pope, like today's Feast of the Chair of St. Peter, paper miters come in handy for many occasions!

There's not much to them so get ready to be amazed.

To start you need:
  • Roll of paper
  • Tape
  • Scissors

Step 1: Cut a piece of paper that is about 20 x 24 inches.

Step 2: Fold it in half hamburger style from the top to the bottom, so the crease is at the top of the paper.

Step 3: Fold the top right and left corners in to meet in the middle and for a triangle. There will be a little strip left on the bottom, this is good.

Step 4: Fold the top piece of the bottom strip up.

Step 5: Flip the hat over and do the same with the other strip. 

Step 6: Fold the bottom right and left points in to form the hat. You can adjust the hat size by folding them in more or less.

Here is how it will look when you flip it back over.

Step 7: Add some strips to the back inside of the hat.

Step 8: Find a toddler to model your hat. 

 Step 9: Find a preschooler to decorate the hat to his/her hearts content.
