You just need a few simple things to make a cute snowman hat centrepiece and it won’t take very long.
I used an empty Ovaltine tin, but you can use any size tin that you have. You can even use a circular box that I’ve seen in the dollar stores. You also need a piece of firm cardboard, some ribbon, some holly and berries, spray paint, fasteners and glue.
The first thing is to measure the circumference of your tin or circular box add a couple of inches for the brim. Trace the circle on the stiff cardboard and cut it out. This will be the brim of the hat. The best way to make a circle is to trace a plate.
At first I thought of glueing the brim onto the hat but it just didn’t work out that way. So I punched 3 holes into the bottom of the tin and used fasteners to fix it to the cardboard brim.
Then I used some rust paint to do an undercoat on the tin. This was to make sure the spray paint adhered to the tin. After this was dry I used black spray paint. You might need a couple of coats of paint to cover everything. Be sure to let it dry completely before moving on to the decorating.
I created a tag to add to the snowman hat as I’m giving one as a gift this year. I’ll add it as a printable tag soon.
It’s all finished and ready to be displayed on a table.
