Make It: Miniature Winter Hat Yarn Craft

Christmas ornaments are one of my favorite crafts, and this winter-themed one is no exception. Years ago I made a version of these little winter hat ornaments at a class party. With a few changes, I shared this updated version on Landeelu last month. In case you missed it in the "busy-ness" of the holiday season, I'm sharing it here today.

Whether hung on the Christmas tree, topping a package, or strung together to make a winter garland, these miniature winter hats are an easy and inexpensive craft project for the whole family.

Supplies Needed for Mini Winter Hat Ornaments

  • Recycled cardboard tubes from T.P. or paper towels
  • Yarn (I used this Lion Brand yarn assortment for the ornaments pictured.)
  • Small white pom-poms
  • Ornament hangers or ribbon

You will also need scissors, a ruler, and a hot glue gun.

How to Assemble Your Winter Hat Yarn Craft

Create a miniature winter hat ornament or package topper.

First, cut a ring from the cardboard tube. (I made mine 3/4-inch wide.)

Next, tie a 10-inch piece of yarn around the the cardboard ring using a lark’s head knot. Repeat until the cardboard ring is completely covered.

Once the cardboard ring is completely covered, use another piece of yarn to tie a knot around the ends as pictured.

Push the knotted ends back through the ring to create the hat shape.

Finish by hot-gluing a small pom-pom to the top and adding an ornament hanger or piece of ribbon for hanging.

Aren’t they cute? I love the versatility and the simplicity of this craft. Wouldn't they be cute adorning a centerpiece for any winter event? Maybe at a sledding party or even a ski team banquet?! Try making them in school or team colors and string a bunch for a fun and easy way to dress up a buffet, dessert table, or hot chocolate bar. Or, pair them with other winter-themed ornaments like these sled ornaments from Fireflies + Mud Pies or these popsicle stick skis found on Virginia Sweat Pea for another fun garland variation. The possibilities are endless:)
