how to make greg’s teapot hat

Creating Greg’s Teapot Hat from the popular animated series “Over the Garden Wall” can be a fun and creative project. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to make Greg’s Teapot Hat:

Materials You’ll Need:

  1. A plain, light-blue beanie hat (preferably one without a cuff)
  2. Light-brown or beige felt fabric
  3. Dark-brown felt fabric
  4. Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  5. Fabric scissors
  6. Craft foam or cardboard (optional for added stability)
  7. A teapot spout (can be a small plastic teapot spout or something similar)
  8. Brown ribbon or fabric (for the teapot handle)
  9. Black fabric marker or paint (for details)
  10. Safety pins or sewing materials (optional, for attaching the teapot spout and handle)


  1. Prepare the Beanie:
    • Start with a plain, light-blue beanie hat. If it has a cuff, you can either remove the cuff or fold it up inside the hat to create a smoother surface.
  2. Create the Teapot Body:
    • Cut a teapot-shaped piece from the light-brown or beige felt fabric. You can create a teapot template on paper first to use as a guide.
    • Attach the teapot-shaped piece to the front of the beanie using a hot glue gun. Make sure it’s centered and secured.
  3. Add the Teapot Spout:
    • Attach the teapot spout to the side of the teapot shape using hot glue. Be sure to position it like a spout on a teapot. You can use safety pins to secure it temporarily while you glue it down to ensure the proper placement.
  4. Attach the Teapot Handle:
    • Create the teapot handle using the brown ribbon or fabric. Shape it into a curved handle shape and glue it to the teapot. You can use safety pins or sew it in place for added security.
  5. Cut and Attach the Lid:
    • Cut a lid shape from the dark-brown felt fabric and attach it to the top of the teapot shape using hot glue.
  6. Add Details:
    • Use a black fabric marker or paint to add details to the teapot, such as the eyes and mouth. You can also add any other desired features to match Greg’s teapot hat from the show.
  7. Strengthen the Hat (Optional):
    • To make the hat more stable and keep the teapot shape, you can insert craft foam or cardboard pieces inside the beanie, shaping them to match the teapot’s contour. This step is optional but can help maintain the teapot shape.
  8. Final Touches:
    • After everything is securely attached and dried, make any final adjustments to the hat and teapot shape.

Once your Greg’s Teapot Hat is complete, you can wear it as part of your “Over the Garden Wall” cosplay or simply for fun. It’s a unique and recognizable accessory that fans of the show will appreciate.
