This really is one of the simplest Christmas Crafts perfect for toddlers, preschoolers and groups of children. You don’t need to add glitter as the cards look ace without them.
Maxi cut the red paper into a triangle before using the glue stick to stick it onto the blank card. He then smothered it in glue so that he could cover it in glitter.
Then he used the cotton balls to decorate the hat. A whole one for the pompom and then an unravelled ball for the base of Santa’s hat.
We then decided to make some with floppy hats (template to download below) and no glitter for the glitter phobic people out there, so this is a five minute craft with minimal cleanup!
It is amazing how something with only three materials (paper, card and cotton wool) can look so great. This really is the perfect DIY Santa Hat Christmas Card to make with groups of children in classrooms and such as you ned so little material and it makes so little mess.
I hope you liked our Santa Hat Christmas cards.
