3. Make the hat by cutting out the hat shape from green glitter paper. Glue a strip of black on top and then glue a gold glitter paper buckle on top of this.

To make the buckle: cut out a square and then fold over so you can make a slit mark with scissors in the center. Then you can cut a smaller square in the center of the gold square.

5. Glue on two googly eyes and the pom pom nose.
