Christmas Hat Craft 


While there are slight variations of the hats most of them will need similar materials and have a similar process to create them. However, feel free to use different materials than I list to decorate and make the hats your own.


Pdf file for personal use, non-commercial use

White cardstock paper

Colorful card stock or construction paper

Tape or glue


Crayons, markers, or colored pencils

Step one: Download the digital file for the hat you want to use. Then print out the hat or hats you want to create. I like to print on white card stock paper for coloring the hat template. You can also print on colorful cardstock paper as long as it is A4 letter size. If you are just tracing the hat then white printer paper works.

Step two: If you are coloring the hats color directly on to the printed out sheet. You can color with crayons, markers, or colored pencils. Kids can also use watercolor paint to decorate the hat templates.

Step 3: Time to cut out the hats. Older kids can cut them out themselves. Younger kids might need help and child safe scissors. Cut out the main pieces and the extra strips.

Step 4: For the free printable Santa hat template you can make a red hat with red construction or cardstock paper. Then glue on cotton balls to the bottom and the very top circle. This gives it a little extra fun.

Step 5: Now it is time to put the printable templates together. Take the center piece and glue or tape one strip on to the right side placing it behind the front piece. Then take the other strip and glue it on to the left side. Measure around kids head to see how long it needs to be in the back. Cut off any extra from the strips leaving the back pieces overlapping slightly. Then glue or tape the back pieces together.

These hats are so fun for Christmas time and such easy free printable Christmas crafts. Get creative with fun craft supplies to add to the hats such as pom poms, a jingle bell, or tissue paper. These are such a great craft for a Christmas party at school or home. There are lots of ways to use them. Kids are going to love showing their holiday cheer with fun hats.
