Note: This fits a dog with a 15-1/2" neck perfectly. To make it bigger, make the tab on the back of the collar slightly longer. To make it smaller, omit one of the points of the collar.

Materials Needed:

  • felt in 8 assorted colors
  • red felt (to be used as a liner)
  • 11 jingle bells
  • hook and loop tape (Velcro)
  • sewing machine
  • red thread

Print Templates and cut out Fabric

Print, then cut out, 2 copies of the hat template and 3 copies of the horn template (Image 1). You will need 1 horn and 1 hat piece cut out of each of the 6 felt colors. You will also need 6 hat pieces cut out of the red felt (Image 2).

Sew the Horns

Sew 2 horn shapes together leaving the bottom open for stuffing (Image 1). Tip: Be sure to choose 2 different colors that you want next to each other. Remove any stray threads and carefully turn the horn inside out (Image 2). Stuff the horn with fiberfill and set aside (Image 3).

Assemble the Hat

Lay the hat pieces out in the color arrangement that matches the horns (Image 1). This will be the outside of the hat. Next, gather and pin the pieces together from the opposite side. Sew each of the sides together to create a bowl shape (Images 2 and 3) Then remove any stray threads. Repeat the bowl shape process with the 6 pieces of red felt that will make up the inside of the hat.
