What's up guys? Today we're going to be covering a fun little trend, the devil horn hat. This is the best and most quality way to make horns for your hat so let's get started.

Tools and materials:

  • Baseball hat
  • Devil horn template
  • Scissors
  • Red fabric
  • Marker
  • Sewing machine
  • Tweezers
  • Stuffing
  • Glue
  • Glue gun
  • Barge cement
Cutting out the devil horn paper template

1. Cut the horns

First, print off the template for the horns and cut them out as precisely as you can.

Cutting out the red fabric pieces

2. Cut the fabric

Take your fabric and ensure that it has a fold in it so that there are two layers, one on top of the other. With your fabric stacked, cut away a square big enough to fit both horns.

Tracing the horns

3. Trace the horns

Now take the cutouts of your template and lay them on top of the fabric. Take a marker and trace around each horn. The marker won't show in the finished product so trace as sloppily as needed.

Cutting out the horns

4. Cut the horns

Grab some scissors and cut away the bottom line of each horn.

Sewing the devil horns

5. Sew

Sew the two pieces together with a simple stitch. Ensure to lift the presser foot and reposition the needle around curves so that you don’t stray off the marked line. Once your two pieces are sewn together, cut the excess around the horn leaving about an inch (2.5cm) to spare.

Cutting slits

6. Cut slits

Then with the extra fabric around the stitching, cut small slits all the way around the design. This will allow the fabric to be more flexible when flipped inside out.

Stuffing the horns with filling

7. Stuff the horns

This next step is where the magic happens and the project really comes to life. Take your fabric and flip it inside out. It’s going to be a bit hard getting the pointed tip inside out so grab tweezers

and shove the fabric through until you get the whole thing flipped.

Now it’s time to stuff the horns with filling. I like to put some filling in and grab tweezers to help push it all the way down so it gets to the hard-to-reach areas.

Gluing the bottom of the horns

8. Glue the bottoms

Once you fill the whole horn with stuffing, you can then close the bottom by using some tacky glue. We want the bottom to be as flat as possible so try folding it like an envelope when gluing

Attaching the devil horns to the hat

9. Attach to hat

Lastly, we're just going to attach the horns to the hat using a hot glue gun. I highly recommend using barge cement for this step but I didn't have any on hand so I used a glue gun instead.

Apply some glue or cement to the bottom of a horn and hold it on your hat for a few minutes until dry. Be careful not to add too much or it will visibly seep out from around the sides and make the finished product look sloppy.

Once you’ve stuck on one horn, repeat the process for the other one.
