Easy Snowman Ornaments

Here's a quick and easy way to dress up to those plain glass ornaments in your Christmas box. While you're at it, make several. They make great gifts if you need a unique Christmas gift idea.


Approximate Time Less than 30 minutes


  • white or silvery-white glass ornaments
  • black acrylic paint
  • orange acrylic paint
  • black felt
  • 2 pom poms
  • craft glue
  • cotton swab
  • small paint brush
  • scrap of 1/4 inch wide satin ribbon


  1. Keep ornaments in their tray, if possible, to make a sturdy placeholder while you work. Using a cotton swab and black paint, paint on simple dot eyes and mouth.
  2. Use orange paint to paint on a carrot-shaped nose.
  3. Fashion a headband for earmuffs by cutting a strip of black felt that is 4 inches long and 1/2 inch wide. Glue in place across top of ornament, just in front of hanger. Glue pom poms at each end of the headband to form earmuffs. You may need to trim one side of each pom pom to "flatten" it a bit to allow for easier application.

  5. Cut a piece of 1/4 inch wide satin ribbon to make a hanger.
