Snowman Holiday Hat Tutorial with Video Tutorial

Image
I started to show how to assembled the Snowman Holiday Haton the above episode, but I didn't finish it on air. So I thought I better come back to my blog and show you how it turned out. You'll have to tell me what you think!!

...But how about the perfect STOOL
This is a long time obsession of mine that I have had. I was first introduced to a this lovely stool below at a previous place of employment.
