Snowman Ornament

Welcome to day 5 of the 25 Days of Christmas Series!  Today I am sharing a super cute Snowman Ornament!  Get the kids involved and let them paint their own faces on their snowmen! 

25 Days of Christmas Banner Day 5

If you followed along with the series last year then you might remember my fingerprint snowman ornament that my oldest helped me with.   This year we just made a single snowman using the same supplies! 

Supplies Needed:

  • clear ornament (I used the flat kind and plastic versus glass)
  • fake Styrofoam snow
  • Black & Orange Paint/paintbrush
  • ribbon or ornament hook for hanging

This couldn’t be easier!  Simply start out by painting a snowman face on the ornament.  When dry fill with Styrofoam balls.

I still had the bag of Styrofoam balls left over from last year’s ornament, if you can’t find it, you can also use Epsom salt, sea salt, sugar or  white rice.  {Just note that if you use anything other than the Styrofoam, it will be heavy and you will probably need to glue the lid on so it doesn’t pull off and spill everywhere!)  

This guy would be a great gift too for teachers, bus drivers, group leaders or even grandparents!  

Don’t forget that I will have a Holiday Happenings link party open until the 5th of January. Please link up all posts related to the Holidays {Christmas, Hanukah, New Year’s, etc.}

    Cute! I will try this with my kiddos! Thanks! You could also use cotton balls so it wouldn’t be as heavy :)

      Yes, cotton balls! I knew I was missing something obvious but it was so very late when I wrote it up! Thank You! Cotton balls would work awesome! :)

    I love this! Totally going to include it in my roundup of handmade ornament for kids later in the month! I’m excited that I found your blog. My husband went to med school in St. Louis and we loved it there! I miss the food! :) Too bad we are in CO now or we could meet. When I saw all of your projects and that you were a former dancer who could quote every line of Friends I decided that we must be kindred spirits. :)

    I love the snowmen but I need to know how you got the styrofoam balls into the ornament? I tried and they stuck to my funnel. Thanks for the creative ideas. Love it.

    • Cheryl Spangenberg

      Try rubbing your funnel with a dryer sheet first. Mine did stick a little but did all fall through and into the ornament. Or try making a paper funnel.
