Making a Paper Santa Hat is easy to do using simple paper bead rolling techniques.
These hats can be given as handmade ornament gifts, used in place settings, Holiday party favors or made for your own Christmas decorations.

Liqutex glaze works great on all of my Papercraft projects. Since it is made for fine art, it is superior to the other paper glazes on the market. It won't yellow or crack and it will preserve your Paper Art indefinitely.
A bead roller is nice to have, but if you don't have one, using a toothpick to roll up the paper strips works just fine. A link to a supplemental video is right below with a demonstration of rolling up the long strips with a toothpick.
Here's an additional craft video on making paper hats using basic tools.
Roll up paper hats using a toothpick (for if you don't have a bead roller)
Cut strips using basic supplies (for if you don't have a paper cutter)
This is a separate tutorial showing the dimensions for cutting and rolling 4 different sizes of Christmas Santa hats.
You simply cut the strips of paper the different lengths and widths shown, and roll up the same way as learned in the Video: Part I.
They can even be tiny hats that are small enough to use as handmade Christmas earrings (which are super cute).
There's both a written tutorial and a video for learning to make these precious paper bead bells. They are made using a simple paper bead rolling technique, similar to rolling up the hats.
The finished bells can be used for all sorts of projects:
