To make the hat, cut out a 1-inch circle out of red felt. Then cut the circle in half. Cut off about an 1/8 of the half circle, as pictured. Size the hat to fit any kind of animal figurine you have.
Fold half circle into a cone shape and secure with hot glue. Let dry. We added a little pom-pom on ours made out of a knot of yarn.
To make a yarn scarf, simple cut a piece of yarn, medium thickness, into a two inch piece and knot both ends. Then wrap it around the animal's neck and secure with hot glue gun.
We made a felt scarf too! Cut a thin 2-inch strip of felt. Then cut 1/4 inch slits into both ends. Wrap around figurine's neck and secure with hot glue gun. Place on cake with a bottle brush tree and other decorations. Try adding a sprinkling of sanding sugar "snow."
