7. Cut a black hat out of black grosgrain ribbon. Use a thicker piece of ribbon.  Burn all of the edges to prevent fraying. Glue the hat at the top of the white circles.

8. Create the body of the snowman by repeating steps 2-4. I used a thicker piece of white grosgrain ribbon but you could use the same size if you wish.
