Step 1: Make Use of Pencil to Draw A Half-Circle on the Construction Paper to Create a Cone
Firstly of all take a plain red color construction paper and draw a half-circle with the help of a scale and pencil. Further, draw a semi-circle using freehand, or if you want you can also use a compass.
Note: If it is a big hat then I recommend you draw a freehand semi-circle else you can use a compass.
Step 2: Utilize Medium-Sized Scissor to Cut the Semi-Circle
After that take medium-sized scissors and cut the half-circle as per the drawing. So, once you have the cut out of half-circle, check if any extra paper is there or not and then trim it.
Step 3: Let’s Create a Cone by Folding the Semi Circle cut out
Further, hold the half-circle and join both edges to create a paper cone. Also keep the base of your paper is cone wide according to your needs.
Step 4: Stick The Edges Of The Cone To Get A Father Christmas Hat Cone
Now apply glue properly inside down at the endpoint of the fold and stick it well. Further, leave it to dry for about 5 – 10 mins under the fan.
Step 5: Trim the Extra Paper from the Base of the Cone
Once your cone is dried and stuck properly then now it’s time to shape up the base. Therefore, if you find any extra is there at the base then slowly trim it off.
Step 6: Here is Your Father Christmas Cone Is Ready To Decorate
Now you have to make sure that the paper cone is easily standing on at a flat surface and to check that keep it at a flat surface. However, if it is not toppling that’s it you made a perfect cone.

Note: Draw the width of the triangle as per the cone size you have.
Step 8: Make Use of Scissor to Cut the Triangle Outline
Take a medium scissor and start to cut the triangle one by one.
Note: Do not cut as a strip and try to stick else it will be very messy while sticking all together. Therefore, it will be better to stick it one by one.
Step 9: Use Adeshive to Stick the Triangle at Base of the Cone
Now use a little glue at the backside of the triangle at the bottom and then place it over the cone one by one. However, do it slowly and give a gap for a while in between each triangle so it gets stuck properly.
Step 10: Make a Small Cone to Decorate the Top Part of the Cone
Take a small piece of green colour card stock paper and then make a small cone out of it. Further, apply little glue inside the small cone and place it at the tip of the cone. And then allow it to dry for r5 minutes under the fan.
Step 11: Create a Swir Using a Quilling Strips to Decorate Father Christmas Hat
First of all, take a yellow colour quilling paper strips and then make light swirls using a quilling pen. Further, apply a drop of glue at both sides of the strip and stick it over the cone one by one as shown below.
