Do you wanna build a snowman?

Here’s how to turn a clear shatter-proof ball ornament into a CUTE & EASY snowman to hang on the Christmas tree! This is such a fun craft to make with the kids and the best part is most of the supplies can be found at the dollar store including the clear fillable ornaments, pipe cleaners, and faux snow. You can also improvise with other craft materials such as cotton balls, white tinsel, shredded paper, mini marshmallows, etc.

DIY Snowman Ornament

Supplies Needed:

Clear Fillable Plastic Ornaments
Faux Snow
Pipe Cleaners
Large Craft Pom Poms
Craft Googly Eyes
Black and Orange Adhesive Vinyl, Construction Paper, or Paint Pens
Hot Glue Gun & Sticks

Directions:

  • Open top of ornament and carefully pour faux snow inside. Place top back on.
  • Twist together two pipe cleaners of different colors and glue to top half of ornament.
  • Glue poms on both sides as “earmuffs”.
  • Glue on eyes.
  • Attach nose and mouth details. (I cut the nose from orange adhesive vinyl, and used a hole punch to cut circles with black adhesive vinyl for mouth.)

    So cute! Thanks Lina! I saw the ornaments at the Dollar Tree today, but I’m not creative and couldn’t think of what to fill them with. Going back to get some tomorrow!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh good! Have fun Ellen 😀

    • Jamie

      Was each one $1 there or did them come in multipacks? We are going caroling at a nursing home tomorrow and these would be great to hand out to the seniors living there!

      • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

        They were 2 for a $1

        Aw that’s so nice Jamie!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Sure- and thanks for stopping by!

    Michaels has a pack of 24 for 19.99. I used a 50% off one item and got them for $10. My girls stuffed them with some brown crinkle paper (think shreds that are used in gift bags)- threw on some eyes and a red puff nose and pipe cleaner antlers..Rudolph!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      How fun! Thanks for sharing Patty!

    Ohh so cute!! But if I used mini-marshmellows, they wouldn’t make it home!! Yummy!!!
    Thanks so the cute idea!!

    The kids made these at my son’s kindergarten class party. The fake snow can be a little hard to work with because of static, so the kids used mini marshmallows. We had them count out a certain number (so it was a math activity). We also used black glittery self-adhesive craft foam for the eyes and mouth. It adds a little dimension to the ornament. Super cute!

    I think I’m gonna try this with some leftover rock salt for the snow, thanks Lina!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh have fun! These are cute! I’d maybe try and glue the top down just in case it’s too heavy! 👍⛄️

      • jennifer

        I thought about the weight, too. I think the salt will still work with the reinforced top. I have a bunch of rock salt leftover from baby shower decor that has glitter mixed in it so I’m hoping it will turn out. So cute!

    Does anyone have a suggestion for which size ornaments to use? Amazon’s are all listed in mm & I’m terrible at picturing what a good size will be.

  8. Bologna

    A friend of mine dic this & filled hers with little marshmallows!

    • Lina D

      Oh cute! Love that ❤️

  9. Nancy

    What a cute idea! I plan to do this with my grandson to give to his parents.Thank you.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      oh how fun! Thanks Nancy!
