Ho Ho Ho! These cute DIY Santa hat decorations are made with foam cones and red velvet.
You can make your own blinged out Santa Claus hat Christmas decor with a few craft supplies. This is a great project for adults and kids during the holiday season!
This project is one of my all time favorite holiday crafts — it is SO fun and doesn’t cost a ton of money to make.

I created this Santa hat craft project after I saw more expensive options in the store. They turned out even better than my inspiration and ended up costing way less.
I saw some cute Santa hat/suit decor things in Stein Mart and knew I could totally make them for cheaper.
decided to go for it. I started with
three foam cones, in different sizes:
I got them all for about $10. I think I used a coupon on the largest. If you
can catch them on sale, you could spend even less!
I found red velvet at the craft store for less than $5 – I only got 22 inches (the
width is 54”) and didn’t even use all of that.
rolling the cones and then cutting the fabric in a semi circle shape:
I used my hot glue gun to secure the fabric down the back seam and then on the bottom and top of the hat to
secure the ends:
I almost used sparkly red felt, but went with the velvet to the get look I
really wanted. If you’re making mini Santa hats, you could use red construction paper or cardstock!
Either would be adorable and would be even cheaper than the velvet.
Then I got four inches of black vinyl (that looks like leather) to make the
ended up making it 2.5 inches wide:
Again, just with some hot glue, I wrapped it around and secured it.
the fun part — the fur. 😍
Joann’s to use for this:
Isn’t it adorable? It looks like Santa’s beard! This
fluffy white trim
For the buckle, I found a package of little square crystals. This package
had 52 and I used most of them. I figured out the size and shape I wanted
before I hot glued them on:
I don’t think I could love these more than I do:
I wasn’t happy with the old Christmas candles I had in this tray (which
was a $1.99 tray I got at Goodwill and spray painted white).
even spray painted the bottom of it well enough yet, so I just filled it
in with some Dollar Store ornaments:
I got all of those to make another Christmas ornament wreath, but I like them here much better anyway!
My favorite part is the blingy buckle!:
They aren’t perfect, but you don’t even notice. 🙂
- Display them in a tray surrounded by ornaments, pine cones or faux snow!
- You can use green velvet or fabric to make decorative Christmas tree cones.
- Use these hats as Christmas tree toppers by hollowing out the foam underneath, or just stick the top branch into the bottom.
- Make these cone hats for much cheaper using paper instead of foam — you can use different colored paper for all of the details.
Stein Mart had three sizes – I think about $9, $15 and $20 each.
cost about $25 total. (And I had so much fun making them!) Adorable.
