If you love decorating and you love snowmen then your going to love this DIY. I wanted to make a snowman hat that can be used as a tree topper or one that I can put on a larger handmade snowman. I found some paper mache containers in Hobby Lobby and I knew they would work perfect for my idea I had.
The supplies you will need are :
1. Round container ( I am using paper mache containers I got from Hobby Lobby)
2. Black spray paint
3. Round flat circle ( I am using wooden circles from Hobby Lobby but a round cardboard cake tray would work too).
4. Glue gun
5. Ribbon of your choice
6. Greenery or embellishment if your choice.
The first thing I did was spray paint my paper mache container which will be the top piece to my hat. I will not be using the lid to this container. Then I spray painted my round wooden circle which will be the bottom piece to my hat. I spray paint both sides of this wooden circle.
Once the two pieces are completely dry I then glue them together. I place hot glue on the bottom opening of my container and then place it onto my wooden circle.
I then cut my ribbon to be glued around the hat. My ribbon was wide so I cut it to be about 3 inches wide .
I glued my ribbon on and then I glued my greenery to the front. I love this DIY because you can make this in a variety of sizes and use it different ways. This hat can be used as a tree topper if you cut a hole in the bottom, it can be an ornament if you make it smaller, it can be placed on top of a handmade snowman or just a decorative piece to place on your table.
