It’s no secret that Christmas movies are one of my favorite things about Christmas. That is why I’m so excited they are the theme for Day 2 of the 12 Days of Christmas blog hop. Instead of the traditional movies I let my kiddos pick the Christmas movie I created a craft for. They chose A Christmas Special: Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir. If you haven’t seen it, you totally should. You can find it on Netflix. It’s one of the few kid shows that I don’t mind watching over and over (as much). This DIY Miraculous Ladybug Santa hat and mask are a wonderful Christmas surprise for your little superhero.

- Santa Hat
- Black Mask Form
- 1 inch Foam Brush (One with a round wooden handle)
- Mod Podge
- Red Tissue Paper
- Tape (any)
First, remove any tags or stickers on your Santa hat.
Next, pour some of your black fabric paint into a small tray or container and dip the wooden end of your brush into it.
Cover one side of your Santa hat with black polka dots.
Allow your fabric paint to dry completely before moving on.
Next, flip your hat over and paint polka dots on the remaining blank side.
Set you hat to the side to dry and pull out your mask.
Cut the nose part off of your mask.
Then, slightly trim the sharp edges where your nose was so that they don’t stab you.
- Seriously, trim them. I’m super clumsy and can vouch that they hurt.
Next, fold a sheet of red tissue paper so that it is roughly a ½ inch to 1 inch bigger than your mask on all sides.
- You’ll need about 8 layers of paper for the mask.
Now draw an infinity symbol on your folded tissue paper.
Add pencil lines to the center as pictured so that the center is wider.
Then fold your tissue paper in half, long ways, at the center of your infinity symbol.
Cut out your symbol through all of the layers of tissue paper.
Next, add a thin coat of Mod Podge to your mask with your foam brush.
- It is best to do this on a non-stick surface.
Add one of your tissue paper cut-outs to the mask. Then trim the excess mask around the paper. See the picture for reference.
Now flip your mask over and tape the attached stretch band of the mask to it so that it doesn’t get in your way.
- Make sure that you weave it around the eye holes in the mask.
Flip your mask back over and continue adding alternating layers of Mod Podge and paper cut-outs.
Add a final coat of Mod Podge and let it dry for 20 minutes.
Next, carefully add black polka dots to your mask as you did with your Santa hat.
- You can use acrylic paint for the mask. I simply chose to use the same fabric paint because I already had it out. Either works find for this part of the project.
Let everything dry completely before moving on.
After your paint and Mod Podge has dried, carefully cut the paper from the eye holes in the mask.
Step 22 (Optional)
Lastly, toss your hat in the dryer on high for 10 minutes to help set the paint.
Watch your kid transform into a Christmas crime fighter with this DIY Miraculous Ladybug Santa hat and mask. Again, if you haven’t checked out the show, look it up. Both the show and the Christmas movie are great. It’s not long, either, so it’s perfect for fitting in on Christmas Eve before bed time.
