Look what I made with them!
You won’t believe where I got the inspiration for this cute snowman.
NOPE! Not Pinterest!
I just blew your mind, didn’t I?
I got the idea at Goodwill!
I saw one there, looked at the price and didn’t want to give that much. (A whopping $3.95)
Call me cheap!
I really didn’t want it because it was clear and I wanted mine to be frosty.
So, I headed over to the glass vase area and found what I needed. Got the vase for .99 cents and the jar for the head for .55 cents! Then I went up the road and got the rest of what I needed.
Want to make your own? Here’s how!
- Glass vase with a round-ish bottom
- Small round jar/bowl for head. (Make sure it is proportional with the vase)
- E-6000 glue
- Elmer’s glue
- Black felt fabric
- Glitter Spray
- Black, orange and pink paint (I used glass paint I had on hand)
- Ribbon (for scarf)
Putting It All Together
First, wash the vase and bowl.
Turn the vase upside-down and put some E-6000 around the edge. place the bowl on top and give a gentle push to stick them together. Let dry completely before moving on. I let mine dry over night.
For all you visual crafters out there, You will be happy to know I have pictures for the rest of the steps.
Make a pattern first. This way if it isn’t the right size you haven’t wasted any felt fabric.
I found something round that was bigger than then the rim of the bowl. This will be the rim of the hat. Carefully turn the snowman on his head and trace around it. This circle will be used as the opening for the hat and the top. This will make more sense in a minute.
Now, slide that over the top of the bowl and see if you like the size. If too big, cut some of the edge off. If too small, find a bigger circle to trace an repeat the steps above. If it’s just right go on to the next steps.
Cut the 8 triangle just like you did for the pattern.
I wanted my Frosty to glow, but a tea candle won’t work. Now way for it to get air in the tummy or it will catch the hat on fire. My solution…
So, what do you think of my Frosty? Let me know what ya think!
Until then, Jayne
