A very last minute activity was assigned to me. This was urgent so I had to gather random materials that could be used to make an Egyptian headdress.


  • black cloth
  • yellow paint/gold paint (spray paint is best)
  • hot glue
  • 2 in of packing tape
  • old newspapers
  • gold glitter
  • scissors
  • cardboard


  1. I am using a pizza cardboard box in this project; cut it in half.
  2. Glue the ends together. Adjust the length based on the size of the user's head.
  3. Glue the other ends together to form a circle or a crown.
  4. Wrap it with black fabric.
  5. Paint vertical yellow lines to make stripes, sprinkle with golden glitter and set aside to dry.
  6. Take 1 1/2 meters of black fabric and stick strips of tape in a horizontal position with 2 inches distance between each.
  7. Paint the black lines (in between tapes) with yellow.
  8. Sprinkle with golden glitter. Set aside to dry.
  9. When the paint has dried, remove the tape strips and attach the black striped cloth to the crown using hot glue.
  10. Mission accomplished!
