Looking for a quick and easy dress up to those plain glass ornaments in
your Christmas box? Or maybe you need a unique Christmas gift idea? Try
these adorable snowmen on for size!
What You Need:
- 6 white or silvery-white glass ornament balls
- acrylic paint in black, pink, and orange
- scraps of fabric
- 4 pairs of pom poms, your choice of colors
- 2- 14" long strips cut from flannel or an old scarf
- craft or hot glue
- small paint brush
What You Do:
Keep ornaments in their tray if possible to make for a sturdy
placeholder while you work.
Using paint brush and black paint, paint on simple dot eyes and mouths.
Use orange paint to give each snowman a nose, and botch on pink paint
Using scraps of solid colored fabric, fashion headband for earmuffs,
glue in place across top of ornament, just below the top of the
ornament. Glue pom poms at each end of the headband to form earmuffs.
Note: You may need to trim one side of each pom pom to "flatten" it a
bit to allow for easier application.
For the snowmen that are wearing scarves, follow instructions above for
faces. Next, at the middle of the strip of scarf, glue to the top of the
ornament, above the snowman's eyes. Carefully glue in place, working
your way around the face on both sides until both ends meet near the
bottom of the ornament. Tie together and glue any areas that are out of
