Santa Hats, not just for trees! Here’s a quick idea for a Santa Hat Tree Topper. Why not put it on a PUMPKIN? Below are the steps I took to do just that. OR you can watch the tutorial on my FACEBOOK page if you click HERE.
I started with a plain brown paper mache pumpkin. I used a plaid flannel fabric to cover the pumpkin with. I cut the stem out and that left a hole to put all the extra fabric into.
I used a white floral pick with swirls attached to it and cut off all the swirls. There were four sections of swirls. You will see a picture below. I used the actual stem of the pick and secured it inside the pumpkin for a brace for the Santa Hat. You can see it above inside the pumpkin.
Next, I hot glued the Santa Hat onto the pumpkin leaving some room for me to add the swirls and red berries.
I evenly distributed the four sections of swirls all around the pumpkin and hot glued them underneath the Santa Hat.
Next, I added the shiny red berries in between the swirls.
The red berries do not show up well in photos, but they do in real life because they are so shiny. I may go back and add more evergreen to this pumpkin next week. But I did go ahead and take it to our Vintage Antique Craft Booth in the meantime.
Below are the pictures of our booth. Our SANTA HAT PUMPKIN is center stage.
