Fun hat ornaments made from toilet paper rolls and yarn. Learn how to make your own.
These cute Winter Hat Ornaments are easy to make. They only take a few items that you probably already have at home and they are easy enough to make with children. Use one kind of yarn or a variety to create a striped hat. The options are really endless by using a variety of different yarns. This is a great craft to use up leftover project yarn.
toilet paper roll
Cut a 1/4 to 1/2 inch loop from the toilet paper roll.
Cut lengths of yarn about 10″ long. I wrap around my thumb and pinkie fingers and then cut on of the loops.
Fold one piece of yarn in half. Place the loop through the tube.
Put the ends of the yarn through the loop.
Pull the ends tight.
Continue to do so until the tube is full of yarn.
Using one more strand of yarn, collect all the yarn ends and tie a double knot, very tightly.
Stuff a balled-up tissue into the hat to fill out the shape.
Trim the top “poof” of the hat and play with it to get the desired fullness.
You can use different colors of yarn to create a striped pattern if you desire.
Different yarns will create a different look, acrylic versus wool, etc…
You can use another piece of yarn to hang your ornament or insert a wire hanger into the top of the hat.
Instead of an ornament, use the hat to top off a bottle of wine.
Decorate a present using the hat like you would a bow.

I love the look of a decorated Christmas Tree. This year, my youngest daughter asked if we could make a lot of homemade ornaments for the tree and string popcorn. This ornament has the look of a quilt. I wanted to design an ornament that you could see into the middle and have it look different. To achieve this look, you will use scrapbooking paper that is two sided.

Using your personal cutting machine, set all red lines to fold and black lines to cut. Cut two of this design to create an ornament. [SVG file]
Cut out two of the designed SVG file on your personal cutting machine using paper that is different on front and back.
Fold in all the triangle shapes on each piece. If you want you can use one Square per fold to hold the triangles down or leave them so they add an additional dimension.

Fold all the long folds.
Attach the one flap that will make the piece 3D.
Now join the two pieces together using the flaps and Glue Dots.
Cut a length of the twine, fold it in half and tie a knot. Place a Glue Dot on each side of the knot and hid it in the corner of the ornament.
