Step 1: Take a Red Colour Card Stock Paper

Card stock paper comes in A4 size. Also, this paper is best to make a Santa cap as it is thicker and will be the perfect material for making solid shapes.

Firstly take a plain red color card stock paper and hold it horizontally and then join both edges to create a paper cone. Make sure the base of your paper is cone wide according to your needs.

Step 2: Stick The Edges Of The Cone To Get A No Sew Santa Cap Cone

Now join both edges and use the glue to make the cone. Further, apply glue from inside but make sure it is well stuck. Once the sticking is done then, meanwhile go through the sticking part and check whether the glue is visible from outside.

Leave it to dry for about 5 – 10 mins under the fan.

Note: Use a wooden stick or any glue tools to apply the glue to avoid a mess.

Sticking the Glue From Inside

Step 3: Shape The No-Sew Santa Cap Cone From The Base.

Once your cone is dried and stuck properly, check the base of the paper cone. If the base is not equal then trim extra paper carefully from the base.

Note: To get a proper base of the cone you need to trim the extra edges. However, it will avoid spoiling the exact shape of the cone.

Step 4: No Sew Santa Cone Is Ready 

Once your No Sew Santa cone is completely dried, go for further decoration. Check your cone by keeping it on a flat surface. Make sure the cone should stand on a flat surface.

Note: For extra support to the glue, you can use transparent tape from inside of the cone if needed.

Step 5: Let’s Enhance the Beauty of No Sew Santa Hat by Adding an Extension

In addition, make an extension for the Santa cone. This can be done by curling the red colour construction paper. Also, if you want to make the extension wider and thicker, then curl plain white paper.

After that, cover the curled white paper with red card stock paper. Now stick the paper from the end of the cone using glue. But don’t apply excess glue, it will damage your craft.

This extension will give a beautiful look at the cap. Also, extensions will enhance the beauty and height of the cap.

Step 6: Add Extension To The No-Sew Santa Cap Cone

Apply glue to one end of the extension. Further, stick the curled paper extension to the cone. But hold it well with little pressure for a while until extensions get stuck to the cone. After that, slightly bend the extension little by little from the base.

Leave to dry for 5 minutes under the fan. Most importantly, never leave your craft under the sun to get dry as it may damage your crafts paper as well colour will fade away.

By the way, I have decorated an extension while making a paper Santa cap. If you wish to get an idea on this, have a look at it.

Step 7: Glue The Designed Paper At The Base Of No Sew Santa Cap

Firstly, make a thin strip out of plain white paper using designer scissors. Secondly, stick the paper strip around the base with the help of glue. Make sure you don’t create a mess by sticking glue in your fingers, rubbing it all over and making an untidy craft.

Make sure the glue is completely dry. If needed, dry it well under the fan for 5 minutes. Always use a wooden stick or glue tool to apply glue.

You can use white colour cotton or cotton balls for your No Sew Santa cap. Cotton gives the snow effect which makes the cap perfect.  Talking about snow, you can also take a sneak peak at paper snow crafting.

Now, take a cotton chunk and create a furry ball. Stick the cotton ball, at the tip of the extension. Also, don’t put pressure on cotton to stick. You may compress it and it will look very small and shapeless.

Be patient while sticking cotton ball as it’s very delicate.

Can we use a Birthday cap for Making a No-Sew Santa Cap?

As a blogger, I get lots of questions asking whether can we use a simple Birthday cone cap for making a No Sew Santa Hat or not? 

Surely we can make it. If you are running short in time. Just use red coloured thick paper and stick it over the cap.

Decorate the cap. Use cotton at the base. You can also add an extension as well. Use a cotton ball at the tip. Make a simple Santa Claus face on the cap to give a different look. 

But this cap does not help you or your kids to wear it. Since, the size of the birthday cap is always small. Also, the base of the birthday cap is very narrow. But, this short cut paper Santa cap will be good for gifting ideas.
