Here's how to create Santa Hats from Clothespins:
To begin the Dollar Tree Christmas DIY Clothespin Santa Hat Ornament, gather all supplies. Remove the metal spring from the wooden clothespins. Line up three full clothespins on your work surface, to create a wedge shape. Attach the wooden clothespin pieces together with a glue gun and glue sticks, using the photo as a template. TIP: You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for it to dry.
Paint the front and all sides of the clothespin Santa hat with Santa Red acrylic craft paint. Set aside to dry and apply a second coat, if necessary. I love my Americana Acrylics from DecoArt because they have one coat coverage on most surfaces.
Attach eight medium size white pom poms to each other in a row with a glue gun and glue sticks. Glue to the base of the Santa hat for the fur trim. Secure one large white pom pom to the top of the Santa hat.
Cut a 12” length of natural jute twine, tie it in a loop with a knot, and attach it to the top of the back of the Santa hat with a glue gun and glue sticks. If you don't have jute twine you could use ribbon, embroidery floss, or monofilament line.
Embellish the Santa Hat ornaments with a mini holly leaf and three mini gold tinsel pom poms. Attach the three pom poms to the holly leaf and then secure them onto the hat using a glue gun and glue sticks. I love how the gold tinsel pom poms glitter against the red hat.
