How to make a Santa hat out of construction paper

First, take your construction paper and curve it into a cone shape as pictured below.

Apply a small piece of tape onto the inside of the hat to hold the cone shape in place. Make sure the tape cannot be seen on the outside of the hat.

Next, glue the edge of the outside flap of the red paper to the hat to close it off and secure it.

Add cotton balls to the red paper hat

Gently stretch cotton balls to loosen them up and glue them around the bottom of the Santa Claus hat. Make sure to glue them close together as you go around the hat to avoid spacing between the cotton balls.

Then, stretch a couple more cotton balls, add glue, and place them onto the top of the Christmas hat. I used the scissors to trim off some of the wild pieces of cotton hanging off of the edges of the hat. Give the Santa hat from paper project some time to dry.
