Ok, I will admit it… I have been majorly slacking on my blogging duties lately. I’m sorry!! I have no excuses other than post-Thanksgiving laziness. It’s a real thing. Especially with work being so busy between it being flu season and preparing to change from Target to CVS, I am just exhausted when I get home these days. It is time to get my butt in gear, though. It is my favorite time of year and I have so much that I want to share with you guys!! I will start with something fun and simple – a snowman ornament. For this project you will need:
A clear glass ball ornament
Wire ornament hook
White acrylic paint
The end of a sweater sleeve (I left mine intact until it was attached)
Sharpie or black paint pen
Orange puffy paint or paint pen
Twine or ribbon
Start by taking the metal stopper out of your ornament and pouring in a bit of white paint. Put your finger over the hole and shake well until the entire inside is completely coated. Let it dry and put the meal piece back in once that is done. Then begin accessorizing by hot gluing your sleeve onto the top of your ball, leaving about 2/3 of the ball peeking out. Measure our how much of a hat you want and then cut. Leave a bit poking out and tie your twine around several times. Attach your ornament hook into the top of the sweater puff. All that’s left is to draw on your face! Two round eyes, an orange carrot shaped nose and a mouth. Bam! Easy as that!
I love how this guy turned out! I am going to make more with different colored hats. We are putting our tree up this weekend so I will have somewhere to showcase them. I will probably give a few out as gifts as well. Happy crafting.
