The great thing about this Hanging Snowman Canvas is that it comes with its own decorative hanger.  By recycling an old clothing hanger, you can hang this winter canvas just about anywhere!  Great for hanging on a front door, a wall, or even outside, this cute snowman canvas will help get your home ready for Christmas in no time.
