Step 1: 

Begin with the visor you created in Part Two.  Lay the visor on your piece of duct tape fabric.  Trace around the inside of your visor to create a circle on your duct tape fabric.

Step 2: 

Cut the piece of fabric out.  This will be the top of your hat.  Lay it on top of the visor as shown.

Step 3: 

Just as we did in Part Two, you will need a lot of small pieces of tape.  Both 2"x1/2" and 1"x1/2". I suggest you make 50 or 60 small pieces before beginning. Begin by taping the topper to the visor on the underside of the hat.  Place 2"x1/2 " pieces long-wise on the inside seam.

Step 4: 

Once the underside is secure flip the hat over and secure the topper to the top of the hat using 1"x1/2" pieces in the same manner you did in Part Two.

Step 5: 

Place the small pieces all the way around to secure the top to the visor and cover all the sticky spots.

Step 6: 

Next we will be making a double sided sticker, just like we did in Part Two.  Overlap four pieces of tape onto a square of parchment paper.  Flip the parchment over and fold the ends onto the other side of the parchment.

Step 7: 

Lay your hat onto the sticker and carefully trace the top of the hat onto the sticker.  You can trace a bit wider than the hat to avoid getting ink on your hat.

Step 8: 

Cut out the sticker.  You may need to trim it a bit to make it fit.  Once it is properly sized peel one sticker off and place it on the underside of the hat.

Step 9: 

Peel the other side of the sticker and place it on the top.  This will seal all of the tape and give you a nice clean look.  You are all done!  Now you can embellish and start wearing your hat.
