Everytime I drank one of the Dannon Drinkable yogurts this year I thought the bottles were shaped like little snowmen.
So, I saved them along with various plastic caps from milk and creamers that I glued on top and just added little magic marker eyes and buttons and tied on various ribbons and other scrap materials I had in my wrapping or fabric box and. I made little snowmen ornaments from the recycle bin. It's frosty and his friends.
Easy enough to be made by children too!
Great for around the house, under the tree or on the tree with a hook or string!
You may roll up cash and insert it inside as a money gift wrap, as well, if you don't glue the hats on.
I like them simple, but you can get as detailed as you'd like and could even personalize them like family members (with their names at the bottom, etc. and add them to as place cards at your table.
Ho ho ho- let the holldays begin!
These beautiful ornaments would make a lovely addition to any holiday tree. You can make them to keep or give away. You have to make them in stages, over the course of a few days only because the paint is on the inside and needs time to dry completely. The actual time spent crafting and expense are minimal considering the results you will achieve with very little effort. Have fun!
Crafter's Note: I happened to find the glass ornaments at a yard sale, where I paid fifty cents for four. The original price was ninety-nine cents each. Retail price is still not bad considering how much you pay for ornaments these days.
Approximate Time Painting - 15 - 30 minutes. Drying - depends on weather, in humid weather it will take a few days. The final assembly takes about 5 - 10 minutes.
