Any December babies? Just me or do December babies sometimes seem to have their birthdays nearly disappear amidst the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season? This hat is fun for December birthdays or festive holiday gatherings! We used a hot glue gun which could burn little hands without careful supervision. Join in the fun and make this project together!

Start with:

  • Cardstock (white and yellow)
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • Long Roll of Green Paper (we reused shipping paper)
  • Multicolored Pom Poms 
  • Hot Glue Gun

Create it!

Step 1: Cut cone shape out of white cardstock. We didn't have a piece large enough so we cut and stapled three standard sheets together.

Step 2: Staple cone together to form base for Christmas tree hat.

Step 3: Unroll portion of green paper and begin twisting.

Step 4: Staple or hot glue end of twisted green paper to the bottom of the cone. Continue twisting, wrapping and gluing until all but the top portion of the cone is covered.

Step 5: Cut and staple small cone from yellow cardstock.

Step 6: Cut and glue star to small yellow cone. Place on top of Christmas tree hat.

Step 7: Glue poms to tree.

This hat comes together pretty quickly, just some waiting for the glue to dry. It's a fun and festive way to enjoy the holiday season!
