For Fun: Banana Peel Trucker Hat

by Brock Davis

I'm guessing Minneapolis-based artist Brock Davis' work might have evolved a little differently had he not had kids. Whether it's erecting a tiny balsa wood tree house in a stalk of broccoli, recreating Stonehenge with Rice Krispies, or making a Gummy Bearskin Rug, Davis certainly likes to have fun with his food. But in one of his latest creations the driving motivation was to cheer up his grumpy kids during breakfast. Here are Davis' directions for making your own Banana Peel Trucker Hat.

'How to make: 1 or 2 bananas. One to make the hat, one to model the hat. This could also be made using one banana. Carve the shape of the hat using an x-acto knife. Leave one of the banana peel sides longer, to make the rim of the hat. Most bananas come with a little sticker. Use this sticker to serve as the logo on the hat, if you want your hat to have a logo. Simple project, takes about 5 minutes yet the memories will last a lifetime.'
