Flamingo Santa Hat DIY

I know my kids will think I've absolutely lost my mind with this post.  LOL.  Oh well!

I've been preparing for a Christmas photoshoot with the '55 Airlight trailer and thought the pink flamingos didn't quite look festive enough.

In just a few minutes I created these little hats with NO SEWING.


Here's what you'll need.

  • 5 in x 6 in scrap of red fabric. (You can use anything; felt, velvet, or even an old t-shirt)
  • 1 in x 6 in piece of white fabric or fur
  • cotton ball
  • hot glue

With the fabric facing right-side-up, run a little bead of hot glue on the 5 inch side of the square.



Press down with your fingers and let dry.

This should form a tube.



Turn the tube right-side- out.

Run a bead of glue along one free edge and place the fur down.

Gather the top of the hat and add a drop of glue between the folds.


Now just add the cotton ball to the gathered end and you're done!


Tip:  I used a drop of hot glue to keep the hat on the flamingo. The glue will peel off and not damage the flamingo for summer use.

Thanks for visiting.
