Santa Hat Cupcake Toppers

A month or so ago, I volunteered to make the treat for our monthly family shenanigans. I forgot. Luckily, I had stashed just enough cupcakes away from a holiday party the night before and put them to good use. With frosting. Lots and lots of buttercream, vanilla-y frosting.

Then, to dress it up for my Christmas-loving nieces, I crafted a few Santa hats with felt scraps, pom poms, and a hot glue gun.  I considered including a photo of what my living room looked like afterwards. How do even the smallest of crafts turn into jumbo messes? I'm doing everything in my power to avoid cleaning it up.

Here's how to make this little guy:

 1. Cut a rounded triangle out of some felt.
2. Hot glue a small pom pom to the top.
3. Cut a larger pom pom in half & hot glue one half to the bottom of the felt.
4. Hot glue a skewer to the back of the felt.

Beyond the treats and the cute crafts and the present frenzy, I hope your holiday season has been happy and filled with the best of people. Three days til showtime.
