Ugh. I can’t even. Sksksksk, if the cool kids are still saying that. Maybe not. But there’s nothing else I can say to express how in love I am with this DIY Mini Winter Hats Yarn Craft.
Like, I’m obsessed.
I don’t really understand how a toilet paper roll and yarn made the cutest thing ever, but here we are.
I made two of these hats because I loved the first one so much. But to be perfectly honest with you, I have absolutely no use for mini winter hats. I wish I was planning someone’s winter baby shower because I would make dozens of these for place settings, but alas, here we are, all dressed up and nowhere to go.
So I dressed up my reindeer fragrance oil warmer that got left out accidentally when I was putting away our Christmas decorations. The mini winter yarn hat fits perfectly on him and will now live there until the end of time.
DIY Mini Winter Hats Yarn Craft
What You’ll Need:
- Toilet paper roll
What You’ll Do:
Cut the toilet paper roll into 2-cm slices. That should give you five toilet paper rings, then a little bit of excess. Just cut that off and throw it away.
Cut thirty pieces of yarn between 8-inches and 10-inches. Honestly, 8-inches is perfect. Any shorter will not work. If you’re trying to maximize your roll of yarn, 8-inches is your minimum, but 10-inches will give you a little more room to play with.
Grab one of the toilet paper roll rings.
Fold the yarn in half, then put the looped side inside the toilet paper ring.
Open the loop wide. Put both pieces of the yarn (from the open end) through the loop.
Pull tight. Allow the knot created to rest on the outer rim of the toilet paper ring.
Continue this until you have filled the entire toilet paper ring. Mine took 30 pieces of yarn, but yours may vary if you use a different thickness of yarn.
When you’re done, grab all the yarn and push it through the center of the toilet paper ring.
Use a smaller piece of ribbon to tie around the top to create a pom pom.
Cut the loose ends at the top in a semi-circle shape to make an even pom pom up top.
If you wanted to, you could carefully weave a piece of yarn across the top, under the pom pom, and use this as a Christmas ornament. Or, as I mentioned before, you could use them as place cards for a baby shower by affixing names to the front.
They’re also the perfect size for a fragrance warmer, so you could just stick it on top of that. Like me. Seriously. No shame in that.
