The idea for this snowman hat centerpiece originally came from something I saw on TikTok.  The project used a charger plate and plastic holiday bucket to create a snowman hat cookie container.  The original idea was cute, but I knew I could level up and turn the hat into a pretty holiday decoration.

I’m always looking for a good Christmas centerpiece.  So instead of cookie storage, I made a snowman hat wrapped with ribbon and filled with holiday greenery and florals.  It was easy to put together and totally budget-friendly, too!

Most of the supplies needed to create this project can be found at the dollar store – like the charger plate, container, and ribbon.  I was able to find holiday florals on sale at the craft store and used some faux poinsettia flowers from a decorative plant I don’t use anymore.

If you’re looking for an easy Christmas decoration to make this holiday season, this snowman hat centerpiece is super easy to put together!  With just a splash of spray paint, ribbon, and seasonal greenery and poinsettias, you can create an impressive looking floral arrangement.

Plastic charger plate and container spray painted black on cardboard. Spray paint can sits in background.

The first thing we need to do is spray paint the charger plate and cookie container.  Remove the lid from the container (discard or keep for something else).  Give the plate and container a light scuffing with sandpaper.  This will help the spray paint adhere better.

I spray painted two coats on the charger plate and container.  The charger I used was black on the underside so I only painted the top.  Since the inside of the container will be filled with flowers and greenery, I only painted the outside.

Once the paint dried, I heated my hot glue gun and glued the plate and container together to form the hat.  Make sure you keep the open-side of the container facing up.  Then, I glued thick red velvety ribbon around the bottom of the container.

Next, I glued a small block of floral foam to the inside of the container.  I clipped my flowers and greenery using wire cutters and pressed the stems into the floral foam.

And that’s it!  After the stems were arranged, all that was left to do was display my centerpiece.

If you really want to make this centerpiece look impressive, you could also string some LED fairy lights between the flowers and greenery.  Give it that holiday glow!
