Wrap your cone with red felt.  I had to play with the felt for a while to get complete coverage from one sheet but it is possible.  Cut off any excess and use hot glue to secure.

Use hot glue to add lid to bottom of foam cone.

Start adding pom pom trim to the bottom of your felt covering up where the lid meets the felt.

I then added a second row of pom pom fringe as well as the woven ribbon around the lid itself.

Cut tan felt to an “elf ear” like shape.

The variety pack of buttons from Buttons Galore and More have a wide variety of button shapes and sizes.  There was a green one in my package that had two large holes.  These were just right for threading through the ivory woven ribbon.  Yep.  It looks just like a belt buckle.  I wrapped the entire thing around my jar and secured with hot glue.  I also added a fun Christmas tree button to my elf’s hat.  I liked just the one button sort of like a “pin” in his hat.

Add your gift (candy in my case) to your jar and then screw on your lid.  Y’all don’t forget to add a sparkly pom pom to the top of your elf hat as well.  (Forgot a picture of that one!)
