Instructions

  1. 1

    Attach a string to a pencil. Hold the string in the centre of a piece of green construction paper and draw a circle by stretching the string tight and dragging the pencil around the centre point. Draw a larger circle to make a hat taller.

  2. 2

    Cut out the circle. Cut a straight line from the edge of the circle to the centre of the circle. Wrap the construction paper circle into a cone shape. Adjust the size of the hat by measuring it on your head or the head of the person who will wear the hat.

  3. 3

    Glue the overlapping construction paper from the top of the cone to the bottom. Trim off excess paper at the bottom of the hat. Wait about five minutes for the glue to dry or tape the cone to hold it in shape until the glue dries.

  4. 4

    Use cookie cutters to trace shapes on colourful construction paper. Use a star shaped cookie cutter to trace the star for the top of the hat. Use teddy bears and gingerbread men cookie cutters for ornament shapes or cut out small circles for ornaments.

  5. 5

    Spread a thin layer of glue on one side of the star. Sprinkle the glue with gold glitter. Wait for the glue to dry and repeat on the other side of the star.

  6. 6

    Decorate the cone tree hat by gluing the construction paper ornaments on the hat. Attach a string on the inside of each side of the hat with tape. Tie the string under the chin to hold the hat in place.

Tips and warnings

  • Always use safety scissors when children help make the hats.
