What’s the Project? These cute snowman ornaments to make for Christmas are a perfect Christmas craft for kids. Paint a small jar and add a face and you’ve got a really cute ornament to hang for your tree for years to remind you of your cute little ones.
I love doing projects with my kids, whether it’s fun Christmas crafts for kids or baking with them in the kitchen. It’s just a great way to spend time together and enjoy the season.
It’s just a cute little snowman ornament for Christmas made using acrylic paint and a baby food jar! So easy-your kids will love this.
This could be a great idea to make for a kid’s Christmas party like a class party. Or just to make with your kids or grandkids at home for fun!
Snowman Ornament to Make for Christmas:
- Acrylic Paint in White, Black and Orange
- Paint Brush
- 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 if you want it really white, 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 paintbrush 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!
