Step 2

Place the fur on top of the tree for the beard, then put the cone on top for the hat frame, and attach a large ball ornament underneath the cone making sure it’s centered for the nose. Sew a cone-shaped fabric, then wear it on the hat frame, and make the fabric pieces for the hands and arms. Stuff the arms and hands with poly-fil fiberfill, then stitch the opening closed and attach the arms on each side of the tree. Decorate the tree with Christmas balls, then wrap a fabric around the base of the tree, and decorate it as well.
