Looking for an easy, inexpensive Christmas "craft" to make for your friends and family? Well, look no more. I will show you the perfect ornament that you can make in less than 5 minutes and everyone you gift it to will love it! This clear glass ornament ball holds a melted snowman and all of his accessories from his carrot nose down to his scarf. Here is CL's exclusive instructions on how to make a Melted Snowman Ornament.
*Clear glass ball ornaments
*Diamond dust (for the melted snow)
*Fleece material for scarf
*Small black buttons
*2" twigs for the snowman arms
*Small black pebbles for the snowman eyes
*Small plastic top hats (found in the dollhouse section of a craft store)
*Orange baking clay (for the carrot nose)
1. Form small carrot noses from the orange clay & bake according to instructions.
2. Cut a 3.5" x 1/2" scarf from the fleece material (cut each end to look like fringe)
3. Fill each glass ornament with 2 tablespoons of diamond dust (using funnel), 3 buttons, 2 black pebbles, 1 carrot nose, 1 small black top hat, 1 scarf and 2 twig arms.
4. Tie a ribbon at the top of the ornament.
The small black top hats may or may not fit in the small opening of the glass ornament. I had to shrink mine in the toaster oven on 200 degress for about 3 minutes.
Awesome idea Kelly! I think I may have to make a run to Michael's this week and see if I can find the supplies! Thanks for sharing!
This is way off the cute meter! I think I must copy your idea as well, Kelly. So did you get the supplies at Michael's, especially the hats?
What a cute craft idea! I don't suppose you'll want to re-run it next year when I am not in the middle of moving?
How cute!! I love these.
Most of the craft supplies shown in my photo were found at A.C. Moore & Michaels. The small hats were found at A.C. Moore in the miniature dollhouse section.
They are so cute,,I love mine ...it looks so cute on the tree. Thanks Kelly! Love U
These are so cute! Great idea!
Love mine! I really want to try this craft so I can pass on to others next year.
I just pinned this to my Snowmen Board on Pinterest. (http://pinterest.com/forgottendetail/)
Such a darling idea I think I'll make up a few dozen for co-workers and neighbors. Thanks for sharing!
Love this! Saw this last night and HAD to make it today!! Couldn't find the hats at A.C. Moore or Michael's so I just made them out of black modeling clay. Also made the coal for the eyes with the clay. Thanks for sharing! =)
I just found this idea. I made the hat using black felt. Made a small corncob pipe. Used sea salt & special glitter & pepper corns for eyes/mouth. Suzanne
How did you make the corncob pipe?
