Remember our witch’s hat treat toppers? Well, we had so much fun creating Halloween treat toppers we had to create some for Christmas too!
The idea for these Santa hats came from Janet Baker, who shares how to create these cute hats in her how-to video (towards the end, 8:15 onwards). We altered ours slightly, using Cherry Cobbler cardstock to line the inside of the hat (so the white backing of the red glimmer paper didn’t show) and using the Cherry Cobbler marker on the edges of the glimmer paper to camouflage the white sides.
For the white trim we used the word window punch with dazzling diamonds glimmer paper. The excess paper that hung over the edges of the hat was trimmed off at an angle (rather than leaving the curved edges like Janet has in the video). For the pom pom we used the large circle from the Owl builder punch.
Like the Halloween witch’s hats, we also coloured the natural clothespins, though this time with a red Sharpie. To colour the clothespins, carefully disassemble and colour only the wooden parts (reassemble the pegs once the ink has dried).
Pictured below are the bits and pieces needed for the hats, prepped and ready to be stuck together.
Simple as that! Pretty easy, huh? I wonder what other types of hats you could create with the tree punch… I’d love to hear your suggestions 🙂
