What You Will Need

  • Green button “buckle”
  • Tree button for the hat
  • Pom pom ribbon in red and white plus ivory 
  • woven burlap ribbon
  • Mason jar with lid
  • styrofoam cone
  • Sparkle pom pom
  • Felt
  • Hot glue and a glue gun


  • Wrap the felt around your cone. It may take a little time to get it just right, but it is possible. Trim off any excess fabric and secure in place with hot glue.
  • Hot glue the jar lid to the bottom of the cone.
  • Add pom pom fringe to the bottom of the felt.
  • Attach another row of pom pom fringe as well as the woven ribbon around the lid.
  • Cut out ear shapes from the tan felt. Fold them and attach them to either side of the cone with hot glue.
  • Attach a piece of woven ribbon around the jar like a belt. Use a button as the belt cuckle.
    Glue on a festive button to the hat as a "pin" and a pom pom to the tip of the hat.
  • Fill your jar with gifts!
