DIY Knight Helmet – How to Create a Knight Helmet (From a Milk Jug)
Here is a knight helmet I created for a children’s birthday party, Halloween costume or just a fun medieval decoration. I have so much fun creating themed crafts and decorations using reused and inexpensive items. This Knight Helmet was made from all reused materials. It is actually pretty easy to make and only took me about and hour. Medieval decorations are so cool and there are so many different designs you can transport your party into the Middle Ages. This party theme would not only be great for kids but also would make a fun adult theme party!
I showed how to make it on my Knight and Princess Birthday Party TV segment. Instructions for the Knight Helmet as listed below.

- Paper Cup
- 2 MetalBottle Caps

Instructions to make the Knight Helmet
Draw the shape of the knight helmet as shown above. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It will look amazing once you add all the details.
Cut out the Knight Helmet shape with scissors.
Paint both the inside and outside with silver paint and let dry.
Dray the shape of the visor on a paper cup.
Cut out the visor and stretch it out so it is still curved but less like a cup.

Paint the bottle caps silver and let dry.
Glue red feathers to the top of the plastic bottle cap.
