Hi there, I’m Heather from Krafts and Kiddos. I’m thrilled to be here at Typically Simple sharing a fun and festive Snowman Ornament craft.  We love making crafts with the kids, and creating a holiday ornament is always fun, and of course will become a keepsake to treasure year after year.

Snowman Ornament Craft

Plastic Ornament
Cotton Balls
2 Wiggly Eyes
Orange Glitter Glue
Black Sharpie

Open the cap of your plastic ornament and fill the inside with cotton balls. Simple, right? This craft is great, it’s easy and turns out adorable.

Place the cap back onto your ornament and begin adding the adorable snowman face. This part takes just a few minutes, minus drying time.

Glue two wiggly eyes on and then add an orange triangular nose. We used an orange glitter glue pen for this. You could easily use an orange permanent pen or even glue on a piece of construction paper. Lastly draw small black circles, using your black sharpie. This will create the mouth that looks like coal.

I hope you enjoyed today’s winter ornament. Creating ornaments can become a special tradition at your house, or even at school in the classroom. These ornaments make for such a special gift too!

Thanks so much Kelly for having us today. Do you decorate ornaments with your kids? What’s your favorite to create? We’d love to hear!
