Southern Guardian Helmet Build
Northern Guardian Helmet Build
The 3-Step Build Process
There are three major steps to the build process and the video clips below will guide you through the entire process. Young children love to help mom and dad build the helmet, especially when it comes to painting. You can always build the helmet in secret and surprise your child with a finished helmet. You will love the expression on their faces. Take your time and enjoy yourselves.
Step 1: Preparation
Step 2: Build
Step 3: Paint
Before you start building the helmet, you will need to punch out the cutout pieces then either curl or fold them. We suggest viewing the videos first before attempting each step. If this is your first time using a hot glue gun, please checkout the various videos and how-to guides on the Internet before you start. Note that all videos will open in a new window.

Again we suggest viewing the videos first before attempting each step. If this is your first helmet build, we recommend that you test fit the pieces before actually applying the hot glue. Don’t rush and wait for the glue to harden before moving on to the next step.

We suggest using water-based acrylic paint to color your helmets. You can follow our suggestions on the color scheme but there is an infinite number of ways to paint the helmets. No matter how you decide to paint the helmets, please share photos of your helmet on the Crafteeo FaceBook page. We love to seeing your creation!
