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:

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 for cheeks.

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.

Scarved Snowmen
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 place.
