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
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:)
