  2. Position a 8.5” x 11” felt sheet to the bottom of the foam sheet as shown.  Trim the felt around the bottom of the foam to fit and glue in place.  Wrap a 5” circle of felt around the 2.5” ball.  Pull and gather the felt to one side of the ball.  Trim excess felt away with scissors and glue in place.

  4. Cut 20” lengths of the cream yarn.   Tie four lengths together at one end creating a long tassel.  Pin about 24 cream tassels across the face from cheek to cheek, just under the nose.  Cut 20” lengths of the grey, silver and white yarn.  Mix yarn and tie four strands together to create more tassels.  Pin the tassels evenly spaced among the cream tassels to add texture and contrast to the beard.

  5. Repeat step 4 to fill in on each side of the eyes and nose.
  6. Cut a triangle from the grey felt that is 30” tall and 22” wide at the base.  Fold and glue a 1” hem in the base of the triangle. Wrap the base of the triangle around the top of the head, concealing the top of the yarn tassels and felt edge.  Pin the hat in place at the back.  Spot-glue as you go for a secure hold.  Fold the edges together along the top of the hat and glue to form the tall, cone-shaped hat.  Glue pompom to the tip of the hat.

  7. Twist the chenille stem into a loop and pin it to the back of the head for the hanger.  Glue the pin in place for a more secure hold.  Pin the poinsettia to the hat to finish.

Super easy and detailed instructions for this cute project! As an alternative, you could use some fabric remnants and get a bit more creative and whimsical with the hat fabric or even add some cording, ricrac, crossgrain or other trimming around the brim. Also, this pattern could be adapted to become Santa, with a red cap and white beard, or even an elf with a red and green cap. Fun project!
