Pin on a patriotic face that’s sure to stand out in any Fourth of July crowd.
What you’ll need
- White craft foam
- Wooden craft spoon
- Googly eyes
- Cotton balls
- Self-adhesive pinback
How to make it
To make one, cut out a basic Uncle Sam-style hat (about 2 inches tall and 1 inch wide) from white craft foam.
Use markers to color the brim blue and to draw red stripes on the top.
Glue the hat to the handle of a wooden craft spoon (if necessary, first use scissors to trim the wooden handle so that it’s shorter than the hat).
Glue on googly eyes and a cotton ball beard, then draw on a small L-shaped nose.
Attach a self-adhesive pinback (sold at many craft and bead stores), and your Uncle Sam pin is ready to wear.
