Supplies to Make a Santa Hat Christmas Ornament

You’ll be happy to note that you likely have everything on hand for this quick Christmas craft. If not, I recommend Amazon (Amazon Prime and I are in a committed relationship).

Psst: speaking of Amazon, if you haven’t tried the Kindle FreeTime Unlimited free trial, I recommend it for the first grader and up in your life. We tried the free trial and got it because my daughter absolutely loves the books she gets to read. We let her play some of the educational and game apps, too.

  • red craft sticks (or natural and red paint)
  • red construction paper
  • cotton balls or white pompoms
  • craft glue and scissors
