I’ve said it before and I’ll be more than happy to say it again, I absolutely adore fall. Except the thing about fall is that it doesn’t last long. You just start settling in with your favorite long sleeve shirt and cup of hot chocolate, admiring the beautiful falling leaves, when bam! Winter strikes, and it’s time to dig out the thick, puffy coat and winter hat. And since we’re about to get our first snow fall of the year tomorrow, I figured this Paper Winter Hat Craft was all too appropriate.
This Paper Winter Hat Craft is such a fun winter craft. For even easier crafting we’ve also included a Free Printable Winter Hat Template to help with the needed sizes, so all that’s needed is to cut, decorate, and paste.
Easy peasy, fun, and probably better than actually bundling up to play in the 20 degree weather.
For our Paper Winter Hat Craft you will need the Winter Hat Template with the Winter Hat Face Size Template, too. Also needed are sheets of blue and purple cardstock. The rest of the supplies include white paper, metallic pens or markers for decoration, black, brown, and red sharpies, small googly eyes, scissors, glue stick, and a 1” circle paper punch is optional.
Paper Winter Hat Craft
- Winter Hat Template and Face Template
- Cardstock – dark blue, light blue, purple, etc.
- Sharpies – black, brown, red
- Metallic pens or markers
- Small googly eyes
- Glue stick
- 1” circle paper punch
Begin by printing the Winter Hat Template pages. Cut out the pieces.
Trace the hat pieces on the winter colored cardstock of choice, like blue or purple. But even orange and red would be cute, too. Cut out. You can use a 1” circle punch for the smaller circles, or use scissors. Also cut out the white face piece.
With the main hat piece, fold up about 2” of the bottom to form a kind of brim. Then decorate the hat with pens or markers.
Once decorated, glue the folded part down.
With the rest of the cut out hat pieces, glue the larger ball to the top of the hat. Glue the 1” circles to the bottom of the long rectangular “ties” of the hat. Then glue the ties to the sides, on the back of the hat.
Now with the circle face piece, draw hair with the brown sharpie. And glue the hat to the top of the circle.
Finish by adhering googly eyes. Draw on a mouth with the red sharpie and draw a simple nose with the black sharpie.
Even with all the snow and cold temperatures, at least these Paper Winter Hats sure are cute! Be sure to check out more of our winter crafts at Our Kid Things, to keep you busy when it’s cold outside!
