Uncle Sam Hat from Recycled K-Cup for Barbie, Ken or GI Joe

All it really takes to whip up this silly Uncle Sam hat for the 4th of July is a recycled k-cup. As for decorations, anything goes as long as you have some red, white and blue! My red stripes were colored with a Sharpie, there's a blue ribbon wrapped around the bottom and the red brim is a circle cut from some felt. Gold sequin stars add to the festive look. Other options: Paint, glitter, buttons, stickers, etc. It all came together in minutes using hot glue. If you find the hat is a little large for Barbie, Ken or Joe, you can always stuff or glue some cotton balls inside.

 Now, this is ~your~ hat folks, you can make it as detailed and extravagant as you'd like,
or as your craft stash allows...
I kept mine very simple😎

But I do I think Joe looks rather dapper😉

One last word about GI Joe...
For those of us that like dolls with articulation, the GI Joe's are amazing.
Even his fingers bend!
When I was a kid, they were the same size as Barbie and Ken.
The newer ones are just a tad shorter, and his head is a bit smaller than Barbie and Ken, 
but then, I guess people come in all shapes and sizes too...

Make something just for fun and have a happy day!
