Snowman Ornament with a Knit Hat

You all know how much I love the dollar store and this year I saw a cute idea for making knit hats as ornaments, but I thought it would be even cuter if you combined it with a snowman head!  I was disappointed when I went this weekend and saw there was no more foam balls, but then I realized that I could actually get the ornaments in a larger quantity and do the same thing! – a total bonus! These are so cute and easy, they’ll have you running straight to the dollar store right away!


  • Small plastic ornaments from the dollar store (or foam balls of equivalent size)
  • Snow-Tex to make it look like real snow
  • Diamond Dust for sparkle
  • Yarn
  • Toilet paper tubes
  • Small bells
  • Air drying clay
  • Black acrylic paint
  • Pink acrylic paint
  • Orange acrylic paint
  • Hot glue and gun
  • Ornament hooks
  1. Start off by covering a generous layer of Snow-Tex to cover the whole ornament.
  2. Prop on toilet paper tube to dry.
  3. Cut off the end of a toilet paper tube to the desired width for the rim of your knit cap.
  4. Cut a lot of yarn at least 10 inches long.
  5. Now we simply make a loop and we put it in our little circle, completing this all the way around.
  6. After you have finished the ring, pull all the ends through the tube and tie it off with a bell on a piece of yarn.
  7. Cut off the extra length to create the pom-pom on top.
  8. Once the Snow-Tex is dry, sculpt a carrot by rolling out a cone shape from the air drying clay and rub onto the head. 
  9. Use a clay too or side of a tooth pick to make indentions to make it look like a carrot.
  10. Hot glue the hat to the head.
  11. Once dried, paint the eyes and mouth with black paint.  Add the rosey cheek color in a pink circle and paint the carrot orange.
  12. Add an ornament hook and done!

Super cute and easy! These are a great dollar store make over to wow your friends and family with a nice ornament for a Christmas present, you can even use it on the outside of present to compliment your wrapping job!  Merry Christmas everyone!


Working mother with a toddler that inspired me to give crafting a try and suddenly I fell in love with the Hobby and I am determined to help others find this joy too!
