An Easy Snowman Christmas Ornament Tutorial

Now this would make any Grandama smile.  Especially if it was given to her by her sweet grandchild. 

And, it would make a Mom smile if it bought a few extra minutes to wrap that last gift or bake one last batch of cookies!

Here's what you'll need:  Clear Christmas Balls.  Mine are Iridescent.

You'll need some puffy fabric paint to make a snowman face.  The puffy paint is great because it adds an extra dimension.  A Sharpie works just fine too.

Finish drawing your face, and then you are ready to stuff.
I found this easter grass that is iridescent and matched well with my ornament.  I just took a small bunch and pushed it into the open end of the ornament with a pencil eraser.

I had the kids stuff theirs with mini marshmallows.

I'd add some ribbon details, and maybe even a top hat made from a toilet parer roll if I had more time.
The kids LOVE these.

That is so cute! I've seen them full of fake snow and epsom salts, too!

Those are cute. I have one filled with fake snow from a student--received it YEARS ago and still hang it on my tree every year.
