The multicolor propeller hat is a classic.
Whether you’re designing a nerdy Halloween costume or embracing your inner geek, a propeller hat is an essential accessory. Since Ray Faraday Nelson invented the propeller hat in 1947, sci-fi fans, computer experts and gamers have all loved the headgear. Styles have changed over the years. A rimless beanie formed the basis of the original design, but there are also propeller hats made from baseball caps. Propeller hat designers have also added novelty elements like glow-in-the-dark blades and customizable logos.
Color the coffee stirrer with acrylic paint. Use a paint color that complements the color of the hat. Let the paint dry.
Glue the two coffee stirrers together to form an “X”. You have now built the propeller for your hat.
Cut off the brim of the baseball cap with scissors. If you have a beanie, or want to keep the brim, omit this step. While the traditional propeller hat has no brim, fashion has changed and a propeller hat with a brim is acceptable geek wear.
the fourth step
Feed the craft thread down the top of the hat and back out again. Align the center of the “X” on the propeller with the center of the hat.
Twist the craft wire at the top of the “X” to secure the propeller to the hat. Trim excess craft wire with wire cutters.
