Nothin like the holidays (and Pinterest) to bring out the crafting in ya! I came across this on Pinterest and decided these would make some cute and easy gifts.
These were made with clear glass ornaments, fake snow, and a baby sock and ribbon for the hat. I had to improvise a bit because I couldn't find any baby socks that would work. I'll show you step by step how I made my little snowman.
|I started off with a clear glass ornament.|
|Then I filled it with fake snow that I already had on hand.....and geez, it can be messy!|
|I found some sparkly silver string at the Hob Lob and tied it leaving the ugly knot hidden at the bottom. I also hot-glued the knot in place so it wouldn't slide to the top. Tippy was supervising to make sure I didn't mess up.|
So when I couldn't find the baby sock, I went to Hobby Lobby and while I was in the gift bag section, I found these small drawstring pouches. Perfect!
|All I did was cut the drawstring off and cut a couple of inches off of the end that was sewn together.|
|Then I slid the "hat" in place and hot-glued it to the ornament all around.|
|I tied a ribbon and he was starting to come to life, well as much as you can come to life without a face.|
|Ahhh, much better! A couple of paint pens later and he's Frosty's new little cousin!|
I only planned on making two of these but I may or may not have dropped one and had to make a third one. That was NOT a fun mess to clean up with all that fake snow. Ughh.
