When I was young, I remember very clearly making Christmas ornaments with my mom. Our Tree was always covered in homemade Christmas ornaments. No fancy, chic ornaments on our tree. And with nine kids, it wasn’t hard to fill up the tree with all our handmade ornaments.

Now that I’m grown, I find I miss having homemade ornaments on our tree. So I’ve begun the journey of making new ornaments each year to add to our collection.

So far we have made Lace Crochet snowflake Ornaments, Goldfish Kids Christmas Ornaments, and a Baby’s First Footprint Ornament.

But I was still missing a fun Snowman ornament. We made many different snowman ornaments over the year. So it was a no-brainer that we needed some homemade Snowman Ornaments on our tree too!

Plus, being quite a bit easier to make is an added benefit. These Snowman Ornaments are so simple you can even get the kids involved!

Snowman Ornaments Supplies:

Easy Snowman Ornaments TutorialRemove the top of the ornament and set aside.

Beginning at the top apply a ring of hot glue to the ornament. Begin to wrap the pipe cleaner around the top of the ornament.

Continue to apply hot glue and then wrap the pipe cleaner around the ornament. Do this for 2 pipe cleaners.

You can do all one color or alternate colors. Really the color options you pick is entirely up to your creativity.

After you use 2 pipe cleaners (approximately 4-5 rows) you will do one final row of the pipe cleaner for a trim. I used a White Pipe Cleaner for the trim on the hat.

Trim off the extra pipe cleaner and secure the end.

Find a narrow mug or something that will hold the ornament upright.

You can fill them all the way full or just a little full. Really it is up to you. I liked somewhere between 1/4-1/3 full.

At the very top inside lip of the ornament apply a ring of Hot glue. Add Another ring of hot glue on the top of the opening of the ornament.

Place the sparkle pom pom on top as a plug or stopper.

Push slightly so it secures to the glue around the inside ring to seal the ornament.

Remember the lid to the ornament that we set aside? Take the wire loop from the top of the ornament out of the cap.

Pinch the ends together and stick through the center of the Pom Pom and push so it begins to slide through the pom pom.

Push until it passes through the Pom Pom and into the ornament. Now it will still work as the ornament hook.

Now we move onto drawing the Face for the Snowman Ornaments!

Using the black glass paint marker you will draw on the eyes and the smile.

Using the orange Glass paint marker you will draw on the “carrot” nose.

Lay the Snowman Ornaments with the face flat and facing up in the mug again, or the original ornament holder. This way the paint can dry without gravity making the paint run and mess up the cute little face you just drew.

After the paint is fully dry you can attach an ornament hook and hang your cute Snowman Ornaments on your tree!

Other than drying time, it takes about 5-10 minutes to make 1 snowman ornament.

What is the secret to keeping the styrofoam from falling all over and sticking to everything? Would like to try this with a school class, but the beads make such a mess!
