Cute little snowman ornaments for Christmas made using acrylic paint and a baby food jar! So easy-your kids will love this.
Snowman Ornament Tutorial:
Acrylic Paint in White, Black and Orange
Baby Food Jar or other jar (you can get them in the glass section at Hobby Lobby or other craft stores)
Paint your jar with your white acrylic paint. It’s going to take about 4 coats to cover it and you have to let it dry in between, so be ready to be a little patient. Paint the lid of the jar with your black acrylic paint. This won’t take quite as many coats-maybe just two to cover it completely.
Once your jar and lid are totally dry, paint your face on your jar. I used the back of my paint brush and my black acrylic paint to create the eyes and mouth of my little snowman. (I tested it out on paper first to make sure I had it how I wanted it.)
Paint that cute little face on your jar using your white, black and orange acrylic paint.
Then, grab your lid. Use a hammer to put a nail right through the top center:
Pull the nail out and now you should have a hole in your lid. Cute a piece of ribbon about 6 inches long. Poke both ends of the ribbon through and tie a knot on the underside:
Now your lid will dangle from a loop of ribbon:
Screw your lid back onto your jar and you’ve got yourself a cute little snowman ornament for Christmas!
