Snowman Hat



So if you read my other post about how I long for the wonders of Winter then you can understand that I love making crafts for Winter...especially snowmen related!

I knew right away I had all of what I needed on hand to create my Snowman Hat. I spray painted a large coffee can and a piece of ply wood cut into a circle with black spray paint. I hot glued the coffee can to the wood. I then wrapped blue snowflake ribbon around the base of the coffee can. I then realized I had some icicle garland with my Winter decorations. I wrapped and super glued the icicle garland around the top of the coffee can. I then sprayed some spray adhesive to the top and brim of the hat and then sprinkled some buffalo snowflakes on it. Then I painted the edges of a pine cone and a portion of a gold berry pick with white craft paint. I also added some iridescent glitter to the berries. I pulled the holly leaves from another pick and attached them, the berries, pine cone and a large snowflake ornament to the hat. Lastly I super glued iridescent sequins and snowflakes around the entire hat.

This was a super easy and fun project and it will make an excellent addition to my growing Winter decorations. I'm so glad I saved those coffee cans...I wonder what I will do with the others?

I will be entering my Snowman Hat in the following challenges:

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my Snowman Hat.
