Now you know the important materials required to make a Santa cap so it’s time to go through the actual process of making it. Therefore, just follow these simple instructions as given below and your beautiful cute chart paper Santa cap will be ready in no time.
Step 1: Make Use of Chart Paper To Create a Santa Cap Cone
First of all, take a plain red colour chart paper and draw a half-circle with the help of a scale and pencil. Further, draw a semi-circle with a radius of exactly 8 and a half inches. You can also use a compass as well to do the job.
Note: Do not draw thick or give pressure while drawing else it will spoil the paper.
Step 2: Use Scissor for Cutting
After that take scissors and cut the half-circle as per the drawing.
Note: Make sure you always cut a little extra from the exact drawing to avoid damage the craft.
Step 3: Fold The Half-Circle Cutout For Making Santa Cap Cone
Further, hold the half-circle you cut-out and join both edges to create a paper cone. However, make sure the base of your paper is cone wide according to your needs.
For instance, if you want to use it for wearing purposes then the base should be wider and if you want it for decoration purposes then you can base it a little narrow.
Step 4: Use Glue to Stick the Cone
First of all, apply glue from top to bottom and press it gently and then allow it to dry for 5 minutes under the fan or room temperature.
Note: Use a glue tool or a wooden stick to avoid the mess.
Step 5: Shape The 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.
Step 6: Santa Cone Is Ready To Decorate.
After that, make sure the cone is completely dried and then check your cone by keeping it on a flat surface. Therefore, the cone should stand on a flat surface.
Step 7: Make a Paper Shred Design To The Santa Cap Cone
Further, make a shred patter for the base of the Santa cap. This can be done simply by cutting the white paper so take a white paper strip and fold it and then start cutting from one end till the other end.
Note: Draw one thin line close to the edge, so it will help you in cutting without any damage.
Step 8: Glue The Paper Shred At The Base Of Santa Cap
First of all, apply a little glue at the base of the Santa cap cone and then place the shred paper strips around the base of the cone. Further, press it gently and then allow it to dry for a while.
Also, you can use white coloured cotton and cotton balls to decorate your paper Santa cap. Cotton gives the snow effect which makes the cap perfect. Talking about snow, you can also take a sneak peek at paper snow crafting.
Step 9: Stick The Paper Shred To The Tip of Santa Cap Cone
Similarly, make paper shreds which you already made once. Now roll the paper strips and glue it at the final end and let it dry. Further, apply glue inward and place it over the tip of the cone.
Hold it with a little pressure for a while until paper shreds hold on to the cone. Leave to dry for 5 minutes under the fan.
Step 10: Make Colorful Glitter Paper Stars Cut Out For Santa Cap Decoration.
Take multiple colours of glitter paper strips and fold it into equal half and then draw a star at the backside. Now take a scissor and cut the star as per the drawing.
Note: Size of the star you can decide as per need.
