This cute Santa hat (or decoration) is easily made from construction paper and cotton.
- A large piece of red construction paper (large or regular size) [Use a large piece of paper if you want to wear the hat. If you only have regular-size paper, you can use these hats as great decorations, but they will be too small to wear. You can also use a brown paper bag to make the hat, coloring it with tempera paint.]
- Small scraps of black, yellow, and pink paper
- A pencil
- Hole punch
- Red crayon or marker
- Cotton balls
Draw and cut out a half circle from a large piece of construction paper.
Twirl the half circle into a cone-shaped hat. Staple along the seams.
Cut a small circle of pink paper for Santa’s face. Glue it to the cone.
Cut a strip of black paper and glue it to the cone as Santa’s belt. Cut a small yellow rectangle for a belt buckle. Glue it to the belt
Glue a cotton ball at the top of the cone (the top of Santa’s hat). Then glue some cotton balls around the cone just above Santa’s face (this is the bottom of his hat). Finally, glue cotton balls around the face for Santa’s beard.
Cut out 2 tiny black paper circles using a hole punch (these will be his eyes). Glue the eyes to Santa. Draw a mouth.
Now you can wear your Santa hat for Christmas!
