Floating Santa Hats

Floating witch hats have been all the craze when it comes to Halloween decorating. It's been on trend for at least 5+ years. I love them, such a fun yet classy touch to Halloween decor. Last year, as I was taking my beloved witch hats down, I found myself asking "why is this the only holiday we do floating hats"? I thought about it for a while and mentioned this to my husband, Brooks. He immediately looked at me and said, "Why don't you do Santa hats for Halloween?" My mouth literally dropped on the floor. Why hadn't I thought of this before? Floating Santa Hats would be perfect!!!

I immediately starting searching and googling for something like this- surely they would be something I could purchase, right? Wrong. So I went to work. I knew this DIY would need wire for the inside of the hat. The witch hats already have that sturdy round base, so I'd need to recreate that for the Santa hats to have stability. I also knew I wanted pretty little lights all inside the hat. So I decided to kill two birds with one stone (if you will). I used wire fairy lights. The wire opened up the hats and the fairy lights gave the perfect dainty glow.

I used hot glue to attach the lights inside of the hats. Then, I stole my husband's fishing line to hang them to the celing. I wanted them to hang "floppy" (if you will) just like it looks when Santa wears his hat! To get this look, I sewed the hat together at the "flop". This feels confusing to try and verbalize, so I'll just show you!

The gorgeous glowing stars I paired with the hats come in white or multi color. Links to everthing I used can be found HERE!



Hi, thanks for stopping by!

I'll admit it- I'm a snob when it comes to certain things... coffee, the way clothes fit on my 30-something fluff, lashes and anything beauty that makes my life easier.


I want life to be boujee (but on a budget) peppered with simplification to my daily routine. If I find something I love, you'll see it here!

Want me to be your guiena pig and try something? Let me know!

Let the posts
come to you.
