Here is the new addition to our cardboard family, a cardboard fireman helmet which I made the other day. This year our boys have really been into Fireman Sam so it seemed only fitting to make them this helmet. However sharing is still an art form that they have not yet mastered, so I'm in the process of making fireman helmet number two at the moment.
It's made in the style of an American fireman helmet just because I personally find them so much more romantic and glamorous than others (Australia).
This is the first helmet that I have made to fit, the knights helmet was a bit of a guessing game, but this time I made a proper helmet frame, to fit Busters head and I think it's worked out a lot better.
My process was easy I basically used one single walled cardboard box , a Craft blade and some PVA glue to make the helmet. Above you can see the shapes I cut out of the cardboard and the step by step process I used to put it together.
