Fun DIY Snowman Christmas Ornament

4 Materials
How I made a fun and whimsical snowman using up some old ornaments that were not being used.
Do you have extra ornaments lying around in your Christmas décor supplies box? I had several ornaments that I chose not to use for one reason or another.. So I decided to see if I could change them up somehow.
So I picked out 2 different sized ornaments and a snowman idea is what I came up with.
So I removed the cap insert of the larger one and set the smaller one on top to see if it would work. It looked perfect.
Then using my hot glue gun from my craft room.. I generously applied glue to the ornament around the opening and placed it on the bottom of the smaller ornament.
Then I placed my snowman on a roll of tape to stand it up. (Could use washi tape, or simply cut a piece of paper towel tube) Then I got a piece of decorative red, silver, and white striped ribbon and I glued it on as a small 'scarf'.
Lastly I used some puff paint in orange and black to add a cute little carrot nose as well as eyes and buttons to this cute little guy.
It turned out even better than I thought it would.
Then I simply hung it up on the tree. :0)
The clear ornament with the snowman is another fun ornament that I had made previously with puff paint. You can see that diy project here.

    I love it and so easy. After it was done and dry I put it in a clear glass vase with some epsom salts (snow) in the bottom. The salts hold the snowman upright. Then I put a small wrapped gift on the snow beside him for a little color. I am going to decorate the vase also. Any ideas? Does anyone have any idea what I could use for a hat?
