DIY: Melted Snowman Ornaments

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…

 

Melted Snowman Ornament By Turnstyle Vogue (tag)

 

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!

Be inspired,
