Make an Emergency Tin Foil Hat
- Two Sheets of Aluminum Foil
- Five or Six Feet of Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil
- Pencil or Ball Point Pen
- Rope, Twine, Ribbon or Other Material to Tie Hat on Head
Grab a couple of pieces of aluminum foil. The ones in the trash that were used to cover leftover casseroles or wrap fresh fish
will do just fine.
Place one piece of aluminum foil on your head from front to back.
Mash the foil down to conform to the shape of your head and fit as snugly as possible.
Take the second piece of aluminum foil and place across the top of the head from ear to ear.
Mash the second piece of foil down over the first piece making a quick tin foil hat that probably won't hold up for long but will do in a pinch.
Stand the two pieces of foil up and fold over at each end to make a cone shaped hat. This hat design will take a little more time, but is worth the extra effort.
Place the tin cone on the head and mash it all together above the head to seal out dangerous rays and deflect mind control waves outward.
Make a Basic Tinfoil Hat
Find five or six feet of heavy duty aluminum foil.
Fold the aluminum foil several times, making a 12 inch square with the shiny side out.
Cut the foil from one side to the center in a straight line.
Bend the foil with one side under the other to make a cone shape, leaving the shiny side showing.
Place the cone shaped tin foil hat on the head and adjust the fit by mashing the foil against the head.
Tape the cut you made in the foil securely closed.
Punch holes in each side of the hat with a pencil, ball point pen or tip of scissors.
Place rope, twine, ribbon or any other string-like material through the holes and tie snugly under the chin.
