Our work Christmas drinks night was festive themed this year- Christmas jumpers or elf suits. Casual. Now, I love Christmas. I also love dressing up, but I do not have any winter-y dress up clothes, no elf costume, and no ridiculous Christmas jumper. I also have no money, and no time.
With that in mind I made myself a quick and easy and *tiny* festive hat for the Christmas drinks.
Here’s what I used and how I did it. PS there’s no sewing involved, but I did superglue myself to a few things along the way. You win some, you lose some.
The red fabric is a spare Santa knot-wrap from Lush, and the sticky bits are kirby gripps/bobby pins. I took two styrofoam balls, and cut the bottom off of the larger one, and glued it to a square of stiff white card.
Next, I cut a triangle of red fabric and glued it around the base of the styrofoam ball.
I folded the top of the fabric together to form a long stocking cap shape, and superglued it together in lieu of sewing.
I took some white fluffy fabric scraps, and glued them together to make a white ‘fur’ trim, and glued that to the bottom of the hat – and glued the other white styrofoam ball to the top of the hat. I glued a whimsical bend into the hat also.
The base was then trimmed to the size of the hat, and the kirby gripps glued to it so that it could be slid into the hair, as shown below!
Unfortunately I was way too tired, grumpy and ill to go to the Christmas drinks, so the hat had to wait for fake Christmas for its first outing!
