My cousin recently had a bridal shower, and as a take-home gift, they had this vase with flowers for the guests.

Of course, I had to repurpose this white vase and turn it into something Christmas-related. I love Frosty, so I figured it was the perfect vase.

Here's how to make a Frosty the Snowman planter.

  • Frosty hat pick
  • Floral shears

Making the snowman face

1. Make the snowman face

I used my Cricut to make the Frosty face, however, you can also use acrylic paint to make it.

Transfering the vinyl to the vase

After cutting the vinyl, I transferred it to the vase.

Filling the vase with floral foam

2. Fill the vase

Since it is a deep vase, I used newspaper to fill the bottom of the vase. Then, I filled the rest of the vase with floral foam.

Adding a Let it Snow pick

3. Add picks

I placed the "let it snow" pick first to begin my arrangement.

Filling the vase with greenery

4. Fill with greenery

I filled the vase with whatever leftover Christmas greenery I had.

Adding a Frosty hat to the planter

5. Embellish

Once the vase was full of greenery, I added a Frosty hat.

Adding berries

As a last touch, my final step was adding the berries.
