Step 1

Make Santa’s Hat by Cutting a Paper Plate

How to Make a Paper Plate Santa - Step 2

Get a piece of the paper plate. Cut along the dashed lines as shown.

It will be easier if you fold the plate diagonally along the dashed line, as illustrated above. Unfold the plate, then cut along the creases made.

It should now look like this once it has been cut. Paint it with some red poster paint.

(The paper plate we have for this project has a glossy side, we used the backside so that the paint glides smoothly)

The paper plate should now look like this. The top part will be the “peephole” of the mask, and the bottom part will be Santa’s beard.

Now punch a hole on both sides of the paper plate as illustrated above.

That way, the mask can be tied to the head, attach a string to both holes. Secure each string by tying a knot.

Your base mask is done. Time to decorate!

Give Santa a beard using cotton balls.
