Snowman Holiday Hat Tutorial

It all started by a friend of mine, Tausha Hoyt from Sassy Style Redesign. She told me about a Witch's Hat she was making with a vinyl record. I was hooked...I created my own witches hat and featured it on one of my episodes on My Craft Channel recently.


I started to show how to assembled the Snowman Holiday Hat on 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!! 


Supplies Needed: 
Vinyl Record (full size)
Holiday picks and Assorted Embellishments
Hot Glue Gun
Black Belt
#10 Can (spray painted black)
Wide 3-4" Ribbon

Step 1: Hot glue the painted #10 can to your record. Don't stress too much about making it pretty the wide ribbon you'll be using should cover that up.
Step 2: Add the wide ribbon to your can. Then wrap your belt around the can as shown in image below. I had to use my crop-a-dile told to punch additional holes in my belt so it would fit around my can. Then I hot glued the belt in place because I couldn't get a snug fit.
Step 3: Then hot clue the various embellishments to the brim of the hat. I pulled apart my holiday picks to create a fun grouping on both sides of the buckle. 

Step 4: This of course was optional since not everyone will be able to find this awesome rosette ribbon from Making Memories like I did. However, I debated for days of what to do in the center of it and then I pulled out my big jar of buttons and hot glued clusters of fun buttons to the center. Has to be my favorite part of the snowman's hat.

Additional Note: The darling little glitter candle actually lights up. I picked up a two-page at Hobby Lobby. I did not glue it in place since the on and off switch is on the bottom, but it flickers when it's turned on and the perfect finishing touch! 

If you liked how this project turned out, I'd love it if you'd help me share it on Pinterest and PIN IT for me. Or if you'd like other fun, inspiring ideas please follow me on http://www.pinterest/allreddesign
