Cardboard Helmets are low tier armor. Easily craftable. They give a +5 Defense bonus to thier wearer. Popsicle sticks can be glued on it for +1 Defense per popsicle stick. It's weak to fire and called The Totem of Dog Repellent by certain mage groups because it wards away dogs and wolves if you hold or wear it (unless the dogs/wolves are in a group). The effectiveness of this depends on the face that has been carved in it and possible enchantments.
