- Paint the center of the wood slice with white chalk paint, leaving about 1/4″ distance from the edge. Let dry.
- Add the screw-in eye hook to the top of the wood slice. If it’s hard to screw in, use a drill to start the hole.
- Cut a long piece of twine to hang the ornament. String through the eye hook and tie.
- Paint the nose with orange paint or paint pen.
- Draw on the face with permanent black pen.
- Optional – Using darker orange paint and a toothpick, add carrot stripes on the nose.
- Make a bow from ribbon and glue it to the bottom of the wood slice.
- Stop here or continue on to create a hat.
- Decide the height of the hat and cut the cardboard to that height + 3/8″.
- Glue black felt onto the cardboard, making one side flush with the cardboard (this is the bottom of the hat) and one side go past the edge. Glue the felt over the edge, towards the inside of the hat.
- This should be done on the side where the felt is flush with the cardboard. Press the hat flat and cut two 3/8″ slits on each side of the side creases that are the same width apart as the width of the wood slice.
- Use the remaining cardboard to cut an oval shape for the top of the hat.
- Cut the oval cardboard in the center of one side. Open and cover with black felt.
- Tricky part – Push the felt covered oval into the top of the hat. Squeeze the hat shape and add a small bit of glue on the hat top edge to glue into place. Do one side of the hat top at a time.
- Glue hat top onto the wood slice.
- Cut cardboard for the brim of the hat and glue black felt to cover both sides completely.
- Glue brim on to cover the bottom of the hat.
- Optional – Use regular craft glue and add some fake snow and chunky glitter onto the top of the hat.
