Snowman Ornament Supplies:
- Clear bulb ornament
- Styrofoam fake snow (the smaller the individual pieces the better)
- Black and orange craft paint
- Pipe cleaners
- 2 craft pom poms
- Hot glue gun or craft glue
How to Make Snowman Ornaments:
Remove the top of the ornament and fill with the fake snow. Place the lid back onto the ornament when you are done.
Paint two black circles to make the snowman’s eyes and several small black circles to make his coal mouth. Then, use orange paint to give the snowman a nose in between the eyes and mouth you just made.
Once the paint has dried, use hot glue or craft glue to attach two pom poms to the ornament, one on either side of the snowman’s head. These will become the snowman’s earmuffs.
Next, twist together two pipe cleaners, thread them through the loop of the top of the ornament and then cut them to size where they should end just behind the pom poms. Then, glue the pipe cleaners behind the pom poms.
Then, tie a piece of ribbon into a bow and glue it to the bottom of the snowman ornament.
Finally, cut a piece of twine and tie it to the top of the snowman ornament to use as a hanger. That’s it, your snowman ornament is finished!
I hope that you enjoyed this easy snowman ornament craft and that you have a very merry Christmas!
