I mentioned the other day how I play favorites. Rudolph, Santa and Snowmen seem to pop up everywhere when I craft and decorate for the holidays! Today I have this fun Styrofoam Snowman Ornament that is so easy to make and the perfect little gift for neighbors, mailmen, trash and recycling guys and even just for your own tree!
Now let’s get to this ornament!
- Styrofoam ball
- Black Pipe Cleaner
- Colored Pom Poms
- Wire or an ornament hook
- Black Puffy Paint
- Orange Sculpey Clay
To start out make a small orange cone out of your sculpey clay. Bake as directed on the package (I baked mine at 275F for 15 minutes) You can also use orange felt if you’d like! The clay is fun to use!
While your carrot nose is baking, start by trimming your pipe cleaner to reach half way around the Styrofoam ball and glue in place.
Next add matching colored pom poms as ear muffs. Glue in place.
Cut a strip of your felt and you can fray the edges if you’d like! Wrap around the lower portion of the ball and tack in place with glue.
Next I placed a dab of glue on the top of the foam ball and then inserted my wire. I spun the wire around a pencil and made a hook at the top to hang.
When your carrot nose is cool glue in place.
Finally use your black puffy paint to create the “coal” eyes and mouth!
