How To Make A Rhinestone Santa Hat Ornament

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 2 6

Santa Hat (32581)

This dazzling double-sided Santa hat measures three inches tall and approximately the same in width. It has rhinestones on both sides of the ornament. You can make it in about an hour using Hot-Fix rhinestones which are available at craft and fabric stores. If you are not familiar with Hot-Fix rhinestones, they are made with adhesive on the flat side. Once they are in place, cover them with a piece of cloth and apply a dry iron set on "cotton". Hold the iron over the cloth and keep in place for about 45 seconds. Do not move the iron as you may accidentally move stones out of position. When the stone are cool to the touch, you can press them for another 45 seconds to insure all the adhesive has melted.


Things You Will Need

one six-inch or larger red felt square

130 red rhinestones 3mm

190 clear rhinestones 3mm

Elmers glue


Printer paper

Step 1

Hat Template (32594)

Print out this article page and use the Hat Template as your pattern. If the printed image does not measure three inches tall, adjust it to that size. Be sure to maintain the proportions.

Step 2

Folded tab (32595)

Fold a six-inch or larger red felt square in half. Position the hat image with the edge of the hat's tab on the fold. When the hat is complete, this tab will serve as a loop to hold a wire hanger. Cut the two layers of the hat, simultaneously. They should match in size and shape.

Step 3

Punch through paper (32596)

With the paper image positioned over the felt, punch through the paper using a marker and leaving a row of small dots that will help you follow the curve of the hat's cuff when you're placing the stones into position. Do the same thing on the second hat piece.

Step 4

Lay flat (32597)
Open the folded felt and lay the fabric flat. It should look like this.

Step 5

Stones border the cuff

Fill the red portion of the hat with red rhinestones. Do not apply stones to the tab areas. Start by placing four rhinestones in a curved shape where the pom-pom and the hat will meet. Now work up the hat, creating the line that will border the cuff of the hat. Use the small dots as your placement guide. Follow that line with another beside it. Keep placing stones in this way until the red portion of the hat is filled.

Step 6

With an iron, apply heat to the rhinestones to melt the adhesive and adhere the stones to the felt.

Step 7

Fill the pom-pom (32599)

Fill the pom-pom portion of the hat with clear rhinestones. Begin by outlining the circle with stones. Then fill the open space of the pom-pom with stones. Use your iron to adhere the stones to the felt.

Step 8

Fill the hat's cuff with clear rhinestones. Begin by putting down a line of stones against the red stones edging the cuff. Follow that line with another beside it. Keep placing stones in this way until the cuff of the hat is filled. Use your iron to adhere the stones to the felt.

Step 9

Repeat steps 5-8 on the second hat.

Step 10

Apply glue (32600)

When all the rhinestones are securely in place, lay the hat down with the felt side up. Apply a moderate amount of glue to the entire area but not too close to the edges. Press the two glued hat images together matching up the outlines. Let the glue dry.

Step 11

Put a wire hanger through the loop and you're ready to hang your ornament.
