I seem to be obsessed with Snowman Ornaments!  I made this Snowman Family Ornament for my series in 2011 and then I made this Snowman Ornament for my series last year and this year I am back again to share my PVC Snowman Ornament!  I just love them for some reason!

Day 11 of 25 Days of Christmas Series at thatswhatchesaid

This project came about one day when I had an hour to myself. A whole hour! Where did I go? None other than The Home Depot! I am not even kidding. I walked up and down each of the aisles because I had only my own thoughts and questions to deal with!  It was glorious!  I actually stopped in the PVC aisle to look at some caps for our downstairs bathroom (which my husband tore out while I was away at BlogHer this past summer!!!)  and while I was looking at caps this little project popped in my mind!  I also extra love it because I am an engineer by degree so it’s fun to make parts that I used to deal with….CUTE!!!

supplies needed:

  • 1” PVC cap
  • 3/4” PVC Cap
  • 1/2” PVC Cap
  • Small Black Buttons
  • Build a Snowman Button Set (Hobby Lobby)  {Or small Sharpie, Orange felt + Black Felt}
  • Hot Glue/Glue Sticks
  • Ric Rack
  • 3.8” ribbon for scarf

I started off gluing my PVC Caps together.

Next I added small black buttons to the two largest PVC Caps

For the face and hat I used this “Build a Snowman” Button set I picked up at Hobby Lobby!

How to make a PVC Snowman Ornament

I glued in the face in the smallest PVC Cap and then the hat on top!

I added some ribbon for a scarf and frayed the edges so it looked like that.

Lastly I added some ric-rac in a loop to hang on the tree!
