Craft: Fish Bowl Snowman

Fishbowl Snowman

Here's a cute snowman head made from an old fish tank.

Approximate Time 30 minutes


  • old fish bowl
  • acrylic paint
  • sealer
  • old hat from stuffed toy or straw hat
  • white spray paint
  • hot glue and gun


Spray paint the fish bowl with the white paint and let it dry. Then paint on your face and let it dry. Seal if you like. Glue on the hat (you could also leave hat off and put in some candy or whatever and give as a gift.)

Very cute idea. You could also paint it yellow and make a happy face with a cap. A nice gift for a 'family' filled with goodies.

I bet you could go to a thrift store and find an overhead light cover that is already white and use it.

That is the cutest thing I've seen in a while and so very simple that anyone could do it!! You could probably find the fish bowl at a thrift store too for a dollar. I was thinking of painting one with a scarecrow motif, using a straw hat maybe? Great idea!!!!

Sandy, I really like your idea ...he is the cutest guy!
gardenlady, your idea of adding the lights inside is dandy! You know, my mind is going 90 mph with different themes for these bowls. How about a birthday theme bowl with a smiley face and added doodles. Add the lights inside and you have a perfect centerpiece for family birthdays. Or make one and give it to the birthday person as a gift!
You could make one for any kind of celebration, right?
Sandy, did you ever think that your cute snow guy would have created such a "snow storm" of ideas?
Thanks for sharing ... Joan -- Dilley TX

With the hat for a cover, why not use it as a candy or cookie jar?
