Here are the steps that I followed:

Step 3 Paint the clothespins








Step 4 Cut the circles for the hats

I have used a coffee cup to make the circle. The line was made to show the half of the circle and was cut. The cut was just made up to the middle of the circle.

Step 5 Make the hats and put the cotton on the hats

The two edges that are loose now need to be folded over each other and then twist it.







Step 6 Now to finish the Zonki

Everything is pasted on the Zonki

Step 7 The Zonki can be used in two ways

To give it as a decoration for the Christmas tree, take the rope and bind it together to make a loop. Put the loop into the pin and the Zonki can now be hanged on the tree.
