2013 Glowing Tophat

Looks familiar..?  It should, this is exactly the same basic decoration I made for Christmas !

Remember my Glowing Snowman Hat?  Okay, if not here is a picture to remind you:

To see the basics on how to make the hat go HERE , but if you happened to have made one, then you only need another 15 minutes or so to transform the Snowman Hat into a 2013 Tophat by doing the following:

Remove the red and white felt pieces, replace it with a silver ribbon.
Say bye to the tiny gift boxes and the Christmas holly.
Add New Year candles {or other NY decorations} - if you want to have a closer look at the small tea-light candles and the votive holder, click HERE and you can see how I made those.
I used my red glue glitter pen to write the 2013 and added some more silver glitter whilst the glue was still wet.  And the same for the top - see below

Updated to suit New Year !

This was a real quick one, but there are not really much time between Christmas and New Year {unless you started much earlier with the New Year decorations...}

Enjoy crafting !
