Uncle Sam Pin

Pin on a patriotic face that’s sure to stand out in any Fourth of July crowd.

What you’ll need

  • White craft foam
  • Scissors
  • Markers
  • Wooden craft spoon
  • Googly eyes
  • Cotton balls
  • Glue
  • 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.
