Approximate Time Less than 30 minutes

Supplies:

  • 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

Instructions:

  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.

Quite cute! I don't have any white glass ornaments but could look for some after Christmas when Christmas decorations are half price!
