We’ve designed the most adorable elf hat with ears which is super fun for kids or grown-ups to wear this Christmas! These colourful paper elf hats are really easy to make with the elf hat pattern printable.
There are 2 versions to choose from:
- Full colour with 4 different multicultural skin colours to choose from.
- Black/white that you can either colour in, trace around onto coloured paper or print straight onto coloured paper.

4 – Cut out the pieces.
5 – Staple the two green strips together to make a hat band.
6 – Glue the red and green triangles around the inside of the elf hat band. Alternate the colours.
7 – Fold the ear stem and use your marker pen to draw some detail on the ear.
8 – Glue the ear stem inside the elf hat at either side.
9 – Glue the white zig zags to the front and back of the Christmas hat.
10 – One at a time, glue the triangle points together at the top of the elf hat.

Now your elf hat is ready to be worn! What fun!
