A fun way to add some personality to your kids winter hats is to embellish them! Create a snowman hat for your little cuties!

DIY snowman hat


White knit hat (I used a one size fits all from walmart for $1.50)

orange felt

Black buttons (enough for eyes and a smile) Can use different sizes if you want


Black thread and sewing needle

Sewing machine with orange thread

straight pins

fabric marker (optional)

Step 1: Lay your hat flat and begin arranging the buttons as eyes and a smile. Play around with the scale of the buttons seeing where you like larger vs. smaller ones and mix of sizes if you want. I sometimes like to offset the eyes on an angle a bit.

Step 2: Cut a triangle from the orange felt about 4 inches long (my base was just under 2 inches wide). Place it on the hat and see of the scale is to your liking. If not, trim a little on the sides you’d like shorter or not as wide.


Step 3: Pin the carrot nose into place. If you’d like, use a fabric marker to mark where the button placement was and move the buttons off. Using your sewing machine, attach the carrot nose to the hat.

 Step 4: With a hand sewing needle and black thread sew on the button eyes and smile. And you are DONE!

A cutie hat that is perfect for all winter long after the Christmas Season has ended. pssst….I bet you have most of the supplies on hand too except the white hat so it’s a great inexpensive gift too!
