We had so much fun creating with Consumer Crafts last week! The boys and I made the most adorable Wooden Snowmen Ornaments with our craft supplies. We posted a hint on Facebook earlier, did you guess correctly at what we were making? With just a wooden clothes pin, white acrylic paint and a few other odds and ends you too can make the perfect snowman ornament for your Christmas tree!
I love crafts that require very few special materials or supplies because then you can make them at any time. My kids know that they can go into the craft room and find all sorts of things that will help them get creative! Keeping things organized into bins and stocked up is always helpful because then they can easily find the supplies that they may need. We tend to run out of hot glue sticks most often and I am always having to make a trip to the dollarstore to pick up more!
We began by painting our wooden clothes pegs white. Cameron and Isaiah did an awesome job painting everything (and I mean everything) white. Tip: fasten the wooden pins on a cup or tin can for easier painting.
Using a fine tip paintbrush I added snowman features and buttons with black and orange acrylic paint.
Finally we used a 10″ length of wire, curled around a pencil, to hang the snowman with. We twisted the wire around the snowman and hid the wire with a scrap fabric scarf tied around his neck.
It doesn’t get much easier or more adorable than that! Seriously, how cute is this Wooden Snowman Ornament!? We also made these simple snowman ornaments, alphabet block snowman and a snowman magnet craft.
