Glowing Snowman Hat

I saw something similar on Pinterest a few days ago, but I wanted mine to be a little different.... punch holes in and add lights to the inside of the top of the "hat" !

This is what I used:

- A tin can {I used a taller than usual can, as all the lights wouldn't fit into a smaller one}
- Spray paint - Black
- A piece of off-cut wood

But before I sprayed the can, Roy had punched some holes into it.  After that was done, I sprayed the can as well as the piece of wood black.

To decorate I used:

- A strip of red felt to go around the hat
- Small felt bow I had cut and pulled it together with some ribbon
- Christmas flowery decoration
- Some small "gift" boxes {which is actually tree ornaments}
- Battery-operated white fairy lights - the battery and all the lights fit nicely into the can, which, by the way, I did not glue to the wooden base of the hat 
- Twigs which I had left over from a previous project

Here is a picture of the Snowman Hat with the lights off:

I am still deciding whether I want more holes in the hat or if that will be over-kill...
