Holiday Candy Snowman Hats

If you have never visited Scraphappy, I suggest you do.  Julie Moss is so talented.  She made the cutest Snowman Hat candy holders    Here are my renditions of the hat.  I used the cardboard tubes from the pastry tubes here to make these. My tubes were 2.5 inches in diameter.   I covered the bottom of the tube with a 2.75 inch circle of white card stock, folding the edges of the circle to adhere to the sides of the tube.  Then I covered the tube with a strip of black card stock.  Then I cut a 3.5 inch circle in black card stock and glued it to the covered bottom of the tube.  I found that attaching the ribbon band is easier to do before attaching the bottom circle.  Trust me there is a band of red and white polka dot ribbon around the hat.  I then threaded a white snowflake brad through a red and white polka dot flower and added a loop of sheer green ribbon to represent leaves. I attached the flower to the hat band with a glue dot.  I went around the brim of the tube with a black marker to hide the edge of the tube.

This was a fast and easy project.  I'm filling them with Andes Mints for treat cups to hand out at my son's office.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  If you have a moment, please leave a comment.  I'd love to hear from you.


  1. This is a great idea, these would also look good on the dinner table with after dinner mints in.
