    We have a contest at work for decorating a Santa Hat. Looking for ideas that are fairly easy but unique as I won't have a ton of time to do it. It will just be a basic white and red hat to start.....

    How about getting a tiny sleigh and eight tiny reindeer and attach them around the white brim

    A Christmas light set that is battery operated

    little candy canes and peppermints attached to the hat

    artificial holly and poinsettias
    or little christmas trees with little packages

    heh, i was thinking of 8 tiny chickens pulling the sleigh. but that might make you look like a CCL (crazy chicken lady!)

    You could sew (or hot glue) little birds all on the hat. I've been looking for bird ornaments to decorate a table at church with, and there are a ton out there! My smallest ones are from Target.

    [​IMG] Make a purse out of it.

    Cut the top tip off (a good 3-4 inches or so) - sew that top side closed, then use the tip you cut off to make the little closure part (sewn to one side of the open end of hat and folds over the other side, with a snap or tiny piece of velcro) and add a strap! [​IMG]

    Won't be a hat but it will be cute! [​IMG]
