Mini Snowman Tophat
Helloooo winter craft! This is perfect for this time of year if I may say so myself! I actually did this same craft a few years ago using coffee cans and larger records so it was more life-size and it turned out awesome! When someone donated some 45s I couldn't wait to make a mini one with soup cans instead!
To start with, I cut out felt/fabric to fit the coffee can around the sides as well as the top. I trimmed it down so there wouldn't be any overhang and hotglued it all to stay put nice and securely.
Next, I added a chunky piece of ribbon around the base of the soup can and lastly, finished up the whole thing by adding some extra pieces I had lying around such as: pom poms, holly leaves, poinsettias, Christmas buttons, beads, artificial pine pieces, etc.
This little guy, or gal, is a super easy craft for young and old alike! Great for a chilly winter day to take up some down time and occupy little ones.
1. Cut your sock in half at the location in the photo
2. Take the top half and turn it inside out
3. Tie off the cut end with string (make sure to tie it tight!) and flip it back right side out
4. Start filling your sock with the rice (a funnel will help make it easier or just take your time with pouring) Fill the sock as much as you’d like – there is no right or wrong way
*I wanted to mention here, if you have text on your sock, it may show on the hat. I, luckily, covered mine up by folding the hat over "hipster" style as shown below.
