This DIY Snowman Hat is easy to make with just a few supplies from Dollar Tree!

I love how cute this top hat came out and I was able to make it in just a few minutes.

This hat is full-sized! Use it as a winter decoration or as a Christmas tree topper!

I used mine as decoration and later added it to a Snowman Kit that I made for my kids. If you’d like to check out the kit I made, you can link to that here –> How to Make a DIY Snowman Kit.

This adorable hat takes about 30-minutes to make. Below are links to the supplies and photos to show you how to make one.
