DIY: Melted Snowman Christmas Ornament
My sister just discovered the world of Pintrest and now she’s become a huge crafter. The first thing she made was a melted snowman Christmas ornament and it’s one of my new favorite ornaments (the fact my little sister made it for me makes it even more special).
Here’s how to make your own melted snowman Christmas ornament:
Using clear glass ornaments that you can purchase at any craft store (or you can use a plastic ornament), fill each one about 1/4 full with kosher salt. You can use fake snow, but the salt is heavier and will hold up the rest of the pieces you’ll be using (meaning they won’t get buried in the fake snow).
Make a scarf by cutting a piece of Christmas fabric. Eyes and buttons can be made by using whole peppercorns. The nose is made with orange polymer clay and the hat is also made from black polymer clay.
To make the hat and nose, shape the clay and bake at 250° for 15 minutes.
Drop the hat, nose and peppercorns into the top of the ornament and then tie ribbon to the hook so you or the person you’re giving it to can hang it on their tree (or on a kitchen cabinet like I did since I didn’t put up a tree this year).
