Long-time Craft Passion followers might remember I made a similar small Santa Hat crochet pattern 11 years ago. Now, I have a new version for YOU from what I have made for my pom-pom Snowman!

Santa Hat Hair Clip

Look at these little twin divas in their matching mini Santa hat hair clip and dress! Aren’t they just adorable?! Loving the Christmas vibes in malls and public areas, they spiced up the atmosphere and made it easy for us to take pictures with beautiful backdrops. While it may be easy to forget about the pandemic when we’re excited, remember to be still cautious and maintain a safe distance between the others! By the way, this is the first time these little girls get to step into a mall since the pandemic started.

Santa Hat Hair Clip

I’m glad they enjoyed posing and dressing up as Little Miss Santa with my festive hair clip pattern. Don’t you think kids these days are such naturals in front of the camera? They never seem to feel intimidated or shy to get their photos taken. I’m sure they’ve gotten used to being a professional model in this digital age since they were babies. 

Since regular Santa hats may appear to be too big on a child, let me show you how to make a Santa hat hair clip instead! It’s also suitable for adults who do not wish to wear a standard large-sized Santa hat. It’s the subtle details that count. 😊 

Santa Hat Hair Clip

This mini Santa hat crochet pattern is adapted from the mighty cone tree crochet pattern I shared last week. Why did I call it mighty? Well, the possibilities are endless with that pattern! Not only have I used the pattern to create these cute Christmas hair accessories for children, but I also used it to make a hat for Chief Clover, the crochet gnome amigurumi!

This small Santa hat pattern only requires 30 minutes of your time, and craft hobbyists should be able to find these materials at home. It’s perfect if you need to pull off something quick. You’ll need some red acrylic yarn, white Fuzz-A-Fleece Yarn (or equivalent), mini pom-pom for the hat’s tip, craft foam and hair clip for the base, and Polyester fiberfill or stash yarn for the stuffing.

If you’re living in a cold country, you can pair the DIY Santa hat hair clip with an accessory like the Miss Santa Cuff Leg Warmers! Let’s not forget to stay safe with the Santa face mask. If you’re still in need of a Christmas prop for your home, crochet a larger sized Santa hat and place it on the Santa Wreath & Noel Letters decoration!

Although many of you may be spending the holidays differently this year, you can still be in the comforts of your home; surrounded by Christmas decorations, Christmas music, Christmas-themed food, and of course, a Christmas outfit!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

Continue to crochet another round of rim (Round 14) with the white fuzzy yarn. Crochet with looser tension with this bulkier yarn so that it is easier to get the yarn through the loops.

Instead of making a mini Santa Hat, you may also crochet a bigger size and attach it to other hair accessories, for example, a headband. To make a bigger hat, follow the basic cone crochet pattern here, and continue to crochet from round 14 onwards.
