21st day of Christmas crafts: santa party hat

how to photograph yourself in the mirror? not in focus!
Really great view of the painted-over 3 layers of wallpaper.
Still not centered but at least remembered to smile…
At the bank the other day, the teller was wearing a cute tiny santa hat. It was so presh I’ve been thinking about it ever since and wanting to recreate it. The one I did today is still a tad too big, but I still like it. These days there’s only a small window to take pictures in natural “daylight” (grey skies) from 10am-2pm and since I was out selling my Language of Flower items at a market, I had to race home to an already sunsetted sun. This is me getting desperate in our hallway mirror. How do you take pictures of yourself?!?! On the bright side, today is the shortest day of the year, which means it can only get better. Hallelujah! 

I used Jordan’s party hat template and instructions to make this santa hat and then stuck in a bobby pin. I thought they’d be great for a Christmas party or like the bank teller, at work.
