- Red and white felt
- White fuzzy fabric
- Googly eyes
- White pom Poms
- Fabric glue
- Hot glue
First measure the circumference of your jar and cut a red felt half circle with the curved part the circumference of the jar.
Make a cone from the half circle and glue with edges together with fabric glue.
Cut a strip of fuzzy white fabric to fit the bottom of the cone and glue on.
Glue on a white pom pom to the top and you have Santa’s hat.
Next using a paper pattern, trace the shape of a beard and mustache onto the white felt and cut it out. I like to lightly trace with a pencil and create my latter using a folded piece of paper so both sides are the same.
Glue on Santa’s beard and mustache and googly eyes using hot glue.
Fill it with candy and put the hat on! And there you have it, a santa candy jar for the hostess who is a little bit naughty and a lot nice.
