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 and you can use it as a winter decoration or as a Christmas tree topper! I used mine as a decoration and later I added it to a DIY Snowman Kit that I made for my kids.

Below are links to the supplies you’ll need and how-to photos!
