Step 1: Ukulele Santa Hat, part 1
- scrap fabric, approximately 6"X6" for each hat
- needle, thread
- sewing machine (optional)
- fabric adhesive or hot glue gun
- feather or fur trim
- white pom pom
My fabric was a lightweight fake fur, but fleece or any textured knit should also work.
Step 2: Ukulele Santa Hat, part 2
Glue the trim to the base of the hat, using either a hot glue gun or a fabric adhesive such as Fabri-Tac.
Next, glue the pom pom to the peak of the hat.
Step 3: Ukulele Santa Hat, part 3
As you can see, it takes little more effort to make several hats at once. These are going to the ukulele club Christmas party.
Step 4: Rudolph, part 1
- a couple of 12" brown chenille stems
- a small red pom pom
- fabric adhesive or a hot glue gun
Step 5: Rudolph, part 2
Glue a red pom pom nose on the front.
Step 6: Rudolph, part 3
The Flea's headstock shape makes it particularly conducive to this type of frame. For my other uke, I wrapped a bit differently, threading the chenille under the strings and bringing it up in 2 parts on either side of the midpoint.
Turning your uke into Santa or Rudolph is a simple way to add a little more fun to the season. Happy Holidays!
