The snowman hat makes a cute table centrepiece or display item.  It is easily make from a large can, some cardboard, some spray paint and ribbon to decorate. This year I made a mini snowman hat using a recycled k-cup.  It turned out to be a cute ornament for the tree as it is about 5 cm high. Pep and Salty were made from dollar store salt and pepper shakers.  They were so much fun to make I then added Sprinkle
