Frosty's Hat

"There must have been some magic
In that old silk hat they found
For when they placed it on his head
He began to dance around"

Well I'm not so sure about silk, but this old wicker find will do the trick for me. Which is great, since I found both pieces for 1.50 at a thrift store. Along with a can of spray paint (I already had), some fun ribbon choices, a dab of hot glue, and some pipe cleaner!

With the weather outside being so blistery cold..spray painting was a little more difficult than planned this time...this called for not one, not two, but 4 coats of paint. (Brrr!)

Not only did Frosty's Hat need a ribbon, but a little decoration couldn't hurt. Next, I used pipe cleaner to spell out his name. (As I use this to label all my wrapped packages under the tree)

This fun ribbon was wrapped around the hat as you would typically see the same type of patterned scarf on a snowman out in a yard. The fun prints will go nicely with my tree and decor in my home. You could choose any color choice and it would work nicely with the black hat.

I chose to keep small packages in my hat for now, but I also thought this would be a great place to store fruit on the kitchen table, or simply fill the hat with ornaments for a decorating party which I will do for one of the holiday parties I will host this evening.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out these great parties this week!
