Snowman Ornament

What parent or grandparent doesn’t like a homemade gift from a child? I treasure every one that my kids have given to me. Here is a cute Snowman ornament you can make to give or to keep for yourself.

Whatcha Need

WP_20131205_009

  • Toilet paper tube
  • White paper
  • Orange and black marker
  • Scissors
  • Material or paper
  • Thread

Putting It All Together

Measure and cut the white paper to fit around the toilet paper tube. Glue onto the tube.

WP_20131205_011Using either paper or material (I used material) decide how tall you want to make the hat and wrap around the tube to get the length. Glue into place. 

WP_20131205_013Place a little glue on the hat and overlap the material to close it. 

WP_20131205_014Carefully gather the top of the hat and wrap thread around several times and tie it.

WP_20131205_018To fray the top, cut the material into thin strips. 

WP_20131205_019For the scarf, cut a piece of material about 1/2 inch wide and long enough to wrap around the tube plus some extra to hang. Fringe the edges like you did for the hat. 

WP_20131205_020Wrap around the tube and glue in place.

To hang it on the tree, using a needle and thread, pull the thread through the hat and tie the ends. Sorry, I didn’t get a picture of this. 

I just thought about this! You could get some small sticks and poke into the sides for arms! 

Have fun making yours!

Merry Christmas!!
