Sunday Favorites Re-Run....Making hats for snowmen glasses or other items...

It's time again for Sunday Favorite Re-runs, a new Meme hosted by Chari over @ happytodesign It is so much fun to go back and re-run some of my favorite post. Last week I posted to pictroial on painting wine glass snowmen, I'm posting an article that goes along with that one, how to make the little hats that go with them, these little hat's look good on all kind of items....

Making these little hats are so simple but they really dress up alot of different things, Baseball make-do snowmen, wine glass snowmen and light bulb snowmen ornies....

You will need
a sock...any color or texture
14" narrow ribbon of your choice. I have even used twine

These are the items you will need....

Using the scissors cut just above the heel line, making sure to cut above the heel.

This is how it should look, straight
On the end that you cut, cut into the sock in little narrow strips up to the cuff line....

lay ribbon under sock at the bottom of the little slits

And tie into a bow,

Now you've made a hat, so very very simple. But it sure does dress up our little snowmen...I hope you enjoyed making these. I know it is just May, but it will be time to start making those extra little Christmas gifts before you know it. And just think how cute these little glasses would look filled with sivler bells or you special someones favorite little treat.


  1. It's a cute hat for your snowmen, but the best of all is your ability to paint those whimsical faces.

  2. They are so sweet. I love snowmen and I just packed them away until next year.

  3. Hi Molly, be careful. Storm just went through here it was really scary, strong winds like 70 MPH, hail, rain and all. Scary!It's on its way there according ot the news. I'll show pics on Outdoor Wed. Trees have fallen in our town, luckily no damage on our property, just a lot of mess.Stay safe!...Christine
