How to create festive Santa hat-shaped hooks
CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS NEED SUGRU CHRISTMAS HOOKS. RIGHT?
Step 1: Open your Sugru
You'll need red and white Sugru to create Santa hats. Divide a single-use white pack into four bigger balls and four smaller balls. Divide 2 single-use red packs into four equally sized balls.
Step 2: Apply your Sugru
Take the four larger sized white balls and press them onto the surface you want to stick them to.
Tip: If you're applying Sugru to a porous surface, smudge the white Sugru into the surface first before applying the bulk of the Sugru.
Roll the red balls into short sausage shapes. Press each red sausage shape onto the white Sugru, pressing and shaping into a cone.
Step 3: Pull outwards
Gently draw the cone outwards in your fingers, taking care not to interfere with the bond the Sugru is forming to the surface.
Step 4: Curl upwards
Curl the red Sugru upwards into a hook shape. Wipe your fingers with dry tissue paper, then wash them in warm soapy water. Now press the small white Sugru balls onto the tips of the hooks, shaping them carefully to get a nice round white ball on the ends.
Step 5: Leave for 12-24 hours to set
Leave your hooks to set for 12-24 hours*, then, hey presto – they're ready to use. Your Sugru will set into a strong and durable silicone rubber. You can now hang your stockings for Santa. Enjoy!
*Depending on the thickness of the application, for load-bearing projects, allow up to 48 hours for Sugru to fully set. Make sure to test your hook before putting them to use.
Remember, if you'd like to remove the Sugru hooks after Christmas, just cut them off with a sharp knife and then remove any remaining residue with a dry towel or your fingernail.
Top tip: If you make sure to keep your Sugru hooks intact when you remove them, you can keep them for next year. Simply use a bit of fresh Sugru to stick them back on! 😉
