Decorative "Snow Ball" Men

I like Snowmen…Can you tell?

I made some Snow Ball Men to add a touch of winter to my home decor. I simply took some left-over styrofoam balls and painted them white with some acrylic paint.

Then, I waited (not very patiently) for them to dry. I punched some holes in black cardstock and glued them on for the eyes and mouth with my E6000 glue.

I then cut a small triangle out of orange paper and rolled it up to make his carrot nose. I snipped off the bigger end so that it was flat and then glued it on his face with E6000 glue as well.

I sprayed him with Elmer’s spray glue and added a bit of glitter to give him a little sparkle. I placed some in the kitchen table centerpiece and in a couple of apothecary jars in various rooms.

    It's sad to see winter go because the snowmen have to leave too! Very fun and cute project!

    These are so cute! I am pretty tired of snow this year–we've had a lot. But, I am definitely filing it away for next year–thanks!

    How do you keep your two year old out of your kitchen table centerpiece!?! They look very nice.

    Great idea! Too cute! I love them in the apothecary jars, I'm always thinking of new things to put in mine and that's a great winter suggestion. Thanks :)

    Thanks! I know…Wishing for Spring here too.

    My two year old is pretty good at not getting in my decorations. It is the food pantry and my make-up she can't leave alone. My eyeshadow and blush is riddled with finger nail scratches! Oh…and she loves to rub my lotion in her hair when I forget to put it back in the locked cabinet!
