Sparkly Snowman Ornament
This darling sparkly snowman is sure to bring a smile to your face his holiday season. It would be a fun ornament to create with kids or make as gifts.
Supplies: Clear glass or plastic ornament, white glitter, Beacon brand “Glitter It”, orange Sculpty (for the nose), black dimensional paint aka puffy paint, black foam (for hat) a toothpick, googly eyes, two pom poms, scissors and low temp hot glue
Step 1: Start at the top with the snowman’s hat. Trace a circle (using a cup or glass for a template) on black foam and cut it out. Fold it in half and make snips in the center. Put on ornament.
Step 2: Next, cut a strip (4 inches long by 3 inches in width) of black foam and adhere it on the
base. Use it to trace a small circle on the black foam. Cut it out and glue it on top.
Step 3: To make the cute carrot nose, pinch off a piece of Sculpey and gently roll it into the shape of a carrot.
Step 4: Too add detail, use a toothpick or small wooden skewer to make lines on the carrot. Follow the directions on the Scupley package to bake.
Step 5: Pour the Beacon: “Glitter It” liquid inside the glass ball. If you happen to have a funnel it could make pouring the glitter easier! Add glitter, swirl and dump out the excess. Glue on the googly eyes.
Step 5: Use the black dimension aka puffy paint to create the snowman’s smile. Let it dy.
Step 6: One the face and hat are down, glue two pom poms on for “ear muffs.”
