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


  • 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.)

These are so cute and would make a great craft to do with the kids this year! I LOVE homemade ornaments!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
