♬♬ You better watch out, you better not pout……Santa Claus is coming to town! ♬♬ – -so add these little red Santa hats to your holiday cupcakes. Could also be used atop children’s plastic toy dinosaurs or animals, to their delight, I’d bet!
Materials needed: solid red and white cupcake wrappers, white mini pom poms (1/4″ and 1/2″), scissors, glue.
Step 1: Flatten a red cupcake wrapper in half. Fold in half again to find where the point should be.
Step 2: Gently twist the wrapper, on your fingertip, into a hat shape and secure with a line of craft glue up the edge. Press firmly to seal. Let dry.
Step 3: Cut a 3/8 inch strip off the bottom of a white cupcake wrapper. Cut enough length to wrap around the bottom of the red hat.
Step 4: Glue the white strip on. Let dry.
Step 5: Attach a mini pom pom to the tip of the hat.
Step 6: Gently bend the point of the hat about 3/4″ from the top. Pinch to secure the bend.
