December is here so let the Christmas decorating begin. This is our first Christmas in our new house so I am excited to decorate the whole house. We bought our first Christmas tree and in an ideal world I would have a totally DIYed Christmas tree but unfortunatly its not going to happen this year. That doesn’t mean I am not going to DIY some of the ornaments. So I started with this DIY Snowman Christmas Ornament. It was very easy to make and doesn’t require a lot of supplies.
I used some blank pages out of some old books I am using for other projects. Tare them into about 1/2 inch strips. You could also cut them if you want a cleaner edge.
Then take the paper strips and wrap them around the handle of a small paintbrush. Using my fingers I rubbed over the paper to create heat to keep the curl when releasing the paper. Make enough curls to fill a clear ornament to the desired fullness.
If you want to skip using the paper you could easily do the rest of these DIY with a plain white ornament. Avoid using anything with glitter or a texture on the outside because the snowman face is a sticker.
To make my Snowman face I used my Cricut and cut it out with vinyl. You could also use sticker dots, paper and glue, permanent markers, or paint.
This DIY Snowman Christmas Ornament would be great to personalize with a name or date. This is also a great technique to use and make some original ornaments.
