Today is the official kick-off to my Christmas season and what better way than with a DIY?
How about a Melted Snowman Ornament? Well, here is my version…
Using clear glass ornaments that you can purchase at any craft store (you can also get plastic), fill each one about 1/4 full with kosher salt. Fake snow will work as well, but the salt is heavier which allows the snowman “parts” to stay on top – or close to – and not get covered by the lighter fake snow.
I created my accessories as follows;
Scarf: Christmas fabric cut with pinking shears
Eyes & Buttons: Whole peppercorns (from the spice section at the grocery store)
Carrot Nose: Orange polymer clay
Hat: Black polymer clay
I made the hat and nose by shaping the clay and baking at 250° for 15 minutes.
I used a different Christmas fabric to hang it with, but obviously ribbon would work just as well.
Just a fun ornament to add some whimsy to your tree!
And my son pointed out to me that this would be a great teacher gift. I agree!
I have another DIY ornament to show you tomorrow c’mon back and check it out!
