Pom Pom: (It helped me to have an extra pair of hands to make these)

Using Colors A, B, and C wrap yarn around flattened toilet paper roll until it’s pretty thick. Take it off the roll, and using a piece of yarn, tie the center tightly together leaving the ends long. Cut up both sides and spread out yarn. Using the long ends, sew into the top of the hat.

 

Elf Ear Pattern (Make 2):

With Color D, CH 5.

Row 1: 2 SC in first chain from hook, SC in next 2 stitches, 2 SC in last chain, CH 1, turn. [6]
Row 2: SC across, CH 1, turn [6]
Row 3: SC across, CH 1, turn [6]
Row 4: SC across, CH 2, turn [6]
Row 5: DC in first two stitches, HDC in next two stitches, SC in last two stitches, CH 1, turn. [6]
Row 6: SC in first two stitches, HDC in next two stitches, DC in last two stitches, CH 2, turn. [6]
Row 7: DC in first two stitches, HDC in next two stitches, SC, SL ST into last stitch, CH 1, fasten off leaving a long tail. 

Flip one ear over so that they are mirrored.

Using your puff paint, draw on the ear details and let dry over night. Using the long tail, sew the ears onto the hat (so that when the hat lays flat both ears are shown on the front – reference below picture).
