The holidays may be over, but winter is not! Making it still totally OK and adorable to make snowman crafts.
What you will need:
- Jar (I used a Ragu Pizza Sauce Jar)
- Fabric for a scarf
- Googly eyes
- Tissue paper
- Construction paper
- Clear Gel tacky glue
- Paint brush
- Glass bowl
- Wash and dry the jar.
- Using the tissue paper, cut out several squares of tissue paper. Cut a variety of sizes.
- Put about a 1/4 cup of glue in a bowl. Add a tbsp water and mix well. The glue will be a little easier to work with now.
- Paint the entire outside of the jar.
- Cover with the tissue paper.
- Secure any lose edges by painting glue over it.
- Allow to dry.
- Using construction paper, make a cone shape.
- Glue on googly eyes.
- Glue on the cone nose.
- Take a walk outside and gathers some small pebbles.
- Wash and dry the pebbles.
- Glue the pebbles onto the jar to make the snowman’s mouth.
- Cover the lid in felt. Be sure to cut off all the excess felt so the lid will still fit.
- Add lace to the edge of the lid.
- Tie a piece of plaid fabric around the snowman’s body for a scarf. (I actually used a prop from another craft, but fabric looks just as awesome).
- You could place a flameless candle inside for a special glow!
