Cutout Pieces

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.

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!
