To make a traditional black top hat for a snowman, attach a spray-painted coffee can to a record using hot glue or sew a hat from craft felt. You can also knit or crochet winter hats that resemble snowmen.
You can choose to decorate your homemade snowman hats with details such as ribbon, glitter and sprigs of pine or holly. Felt flowers and colorful buttons can also add festive touches.
