Steps:

  1. First I traced the tea light so that I could sketch out the hat to fit the snowman. Once I had a good outline for a hat, I cut out the brim and hat top to use as templates.sketch hat
  2. Trace your hat templates onto the papers you selected for your hat. Cut them out.hat brim templatehat template
  3. Glue the brim to the hat and glue a pom pom on top.finished hat
  4. Using the paint pen, draw the mouth and eyes into the front of the tea light. Be sure to leave room to glue the hat onto the top.draw eyes and mouthgglue hat on snowman

Adorable! Now I have to find those tea lights.

This is too cute! You could also put a magnet on the back and hang it on the door (providing it's metal like mine) or the fridge. Now that you can get them 3/1.00 that would be a very cute thing to make with the kids. Kudos!
