Crafty Mama: How to make an adorable {lightbulb} snowman ornament!

Guest post by Ginger Bowie, Ginger Snap Crafts

Hi! I’m Ginger from Ginger Snap Crafts. My blog is full of fun & simple crafts that you can do, too! I’m excited to be here at the NWA Motherlode today.

My family & I have lived in Northwest Arkansas for just over 5 years. We absolutely love it here. I’m always happy to meet new friends.

Today I’d love to show you how to make  this adorable {light bulb} snowman ornament.

For this project you’ll need:
light bulb, fabric strip, cotton ball, ribbon,
buttons, black paint marker, hot glue gun,
metal hook, orange cardstock, twine or thin ribbon

Here’s how you’ll assemble your snowman ornament:

one~ You’ll get your fabric strip (about 2 inch X 4inches long) & iron the edge up.
two~ You’ll hot glue the fabric {folded side down) around the silver part of your light bulb.
three~ Put a small piece of cotton ball inside your soon-to-be-snowman’s “hat”.
four~ Tie the top of your “hat” with a piece of twine. Fray the edges with scissors.
five~ Tie a ribbon around the skinny part of the light bulb to make a scarf. Glue into place with just a dot or two of the hot glue.
six~ Draw on eyes & a mouth with the black paint marker & then glue on a orange cardstock nose.

Isn’t he cute?

Add a hook to the top & he’s ready to hang on the tree!
