2. Use a red permanent marker to draw red vertical stripes on the hat.
3. Cut a very small rectangle (about ¼’ X 1 ½”). Color this small rectangle with a blue permanent marker for the brim of the hat. Hot glue it to the bottom of the red and white rectangle.4. Hot Glue Gun the hat to the handle of a wooden craft spoon (You may have to cut the handle of the spoon shorter so the hat totally covers the spoon). 5. Hot Glue Gun on Google Eyes .

7.Use the Permenant Black Marker
to draw a nose.
8. Attach a pin back with hot glue. (Sold at many craft and bead stores).
There you go. Your Uncle Sam pin is ready to wear. Give some as gifts, but make sure to keep one for yourself!
