Coffee Can Snowman Hat

Coffee Can Snowman Hat

I am convinced that Frosty the Snowman drinks a lot of coffee ( iced of course) in order to keep up with everything during the holidays. He left me an empty can to prove it so in his honor, I decided to make a hat out of it to add to my Christmas d├ęcor.

I’m also excited that this project is my first as a Guest Designer for DCWV (Diecuts With A View)! I have loved their papers and products for years and to get to design with them? Priceless!



For this project you will need:
  • Empty Coffee Can
  • Chipboard or cardboard for brim
  • Craft Paint
  • DCWV Candy Cane Lane Stack
  • DCWV Glitzy Glitter Stack
  • Embellishments
DCWV Candy Cane Lane

The Candy Cane Lane stack is so much fun filled with black and white ( my fave!) and bright red papers.

Coffee Can Snowman Hat Prep

Step 1:
Prep your can. You could paint the whole thing but I just painted the edges and then cut plain black paper to fit around the can. I did the same with the bottom of the can which became the top of my hat. Apply paper with strong double sided tape or glue.

Step 2:
Cut a circle larger than your can. This will be the brim. I used chipboard and painted it black. Once your “brim” is dry hot glue your can ( bottom side up) to the brim. Now comes the fun part. Now comes the fun part! Decorate!

Step 3:
One thing I love about the DCCWV products is that the colors of the different stacks and papers often coordinate so you can use papers from different collecttions together. To decorate my hat, I punched circles from the Holiday Glitzy Glitter Stack using a red and silver glittered candy cane striped paper.  Apply these with strong tape or glue ( I broke my Xyron…Santa?)

Step 4:
Back to the Candy Cane Lane Stack, I chose a sheet of tags and cut a couple of them to use for my hat. I mounted these on scrap chipboard and embellished with sequins and glitter glue .


At this point I was having fun with my hat and didn’t take pictures ooops!  I grabbed some ribbons from my stash and wrapped around the brim as shown ( so don’t worry if you have glue showing...use a wide ribbon and no one will know).

I had some pompom and silver ribbon that I hot glued around the top of the brim. I added some metallic pipe cleaners, a snow shovel, and large jingle bells, and gave the top of my hat a dusting of snow using glue and large glitter flakes.
