• Tie a piece of 8″ twine onto the Mason Jar Lid Ring. Tie the ends into a knot and glue the knot right onto the backside of the lid ring.
• Trace the outside of your lid ring onto a piece of flesh-colored felt, cut out with scissors and carefully glue into the back side of your lid ring.
• Measure the top of your lid ring about ¼ of the way down and cut two pieces of a Santa hat out of red felt by making the bottom with ½” inch wider than your measurement to give room for the sides.

• Place your two hats together and sew the sides together using your yarn needle, twine, and a basic blanket stitch. Bring the needle out directly below again, just below the edge of the fabric. Loop the thread around the needle where it emerges and pull the thread taut. You can read more here. (If you like, you can add a tad of fiberfill to the hat to make it puff-out just a bit.)
• Cut out a white cloud like-piece from your white felt for a hatband. Glue it to the bottom of your hat.
• Cut out a small white circle cloud for a “poof” at the top of the Santa hat. Glue it to the top of your hat.

How to Make Christmas Crackers

Crackers are typically pulled at the Christmas dinner table or at parties. These are big in the UK. Commercially made Christmas Crackers are pulled apart by two people, and have a gift of some sort in one of the chambers. When the opening happens, only one person receives the gift. Commercially made crackers will split with a mild bang. No bang for homemade versions, but plenty of treats inside including small toys and candy (your choice). These popular Christmas crackers have been around for over 150 years, and are simple to make at home. Add them to your holiday table (or just the kid’s table) this Christmas!

This craft is super simple to make. It is a great one to assign to children to help get the Christmas table decorations ready.
