Stuff cotton ball into cherry

Finish off and sew to the top of the hat.
Using E hook, attach stem color to cherry top
Using thread, randomly sew beads onto hat. I like to use bugle beads or seed beads, for more realistic "sprinkles". Sprinkles are a potential choking hazard, so I would recommend using them if the hat is for a photo prop or under parental supervision.
