Step 1: Materials
To make these, you will need:
- bottle caps (you can buy some from a craft store or save some from empty soda pop bottles); I bought mine from Michael's for about $1.59
- glue gun
- white paint
- paint brush
- black and orange 3D puff paint
Step 2: Make Snowmen
To make the snowmen, first paint the insides of the bottle caps with white paint, and let dry. Once they've dried a little, grab some black and orange puff paint and make the snowman's eyes, carrot nose, and buttons.
Step 3: Add Ribbon
Next, cut a piece of ribbon and loop it around so it can hang on your tree, once the ornaments have been assembled. Then, use a dab of hot glue to attach each bottom cap to the ribbon. Remember that the head goes on top, the buttons go in the middle, and the blank cap goes on the bottom.
Step 4: Add Ribbon Scarf
As an added bonus, you can add a ribbon "scarf" to your snowman. To do this, simply cut a piece of thin ribbon, wrap it around the top of the snowman, and add a button to the middle.
Step 5: Complete!
Now, those jolly happy souls will be alive as they could be when you hang them up on the Christmas tree! I made on for my mother's friend, who comes to help mop our floors of our apartment.
