After you are satisfied with the amount, tie it with a piece of yarn and take it off from the cardboard. Now, cut both the ends so that you would get a big ball of pom-pom. Trim it a bit to give it a perfect shape and don’t cut the extra piece with which you had tied the pompom. Take a felt and draw the shape of the hat and cut it out. You can either sew the end or apply hot glue. After that, cut the tip of the cone so that the thread can pass through it. Turn the hat inside out. Now take the pompom and pass the thread through the hole on the tip. Secure the pompom to the hat with hot glue and tie the thread on the tip. Decorate your wizard hat with some cotton balls.

We can even decorate the tree with some small lanterns. These are super easy to make.

Now, apply glue all over the balloon and start wrapping it with yarn in an uneven manner. You don’t have to follow any pattern, just cover the balloon with yarn till you are satisfied with the result. Let the yarn dry. After it has completely dried, burst the balloon and take it out.
