Instructions:

Snowman

Glittered Snowman Ornament

  1. Start by making some Glitter In Glass Ornaments…for these I use extra fine white glitter.
     
  2. Start by painting two circles (filled in) for the eyes.  Now, make about 5 or 6 circles for the snowman’s mouth.  They do not need to be perfect, we are trying to achieve the look of coal…remember Frosty the Snowman with his eyes made out of coal?  I went a step further and painted the silver top black too so it looks like a hat.
