Here's how to create Snowman Ornaments from Flowerpots:
To begin the Dollar Tree Christmas Crafts Clay Pot Snowman, gather all materials and then remove the packaging and labels. Select the correct size of wiggle eyes, match up the paint colors with the ribbon, and the chenille stem colors with the pom pom colors. Mix and match from the materials you have on hand in your craft stash.
Basecoat the 2.5” clay pots with Titanium White acrylic craft paint. Let the paint dry and then apply a second coat, if necessary. Topcoat the rim of one clay pot with Slate Grey acrylic craft paint and the other with Lavendar acrylic craft paint. Set aside to dry. Apply a second coat, if necessary. I love using Americana Acrylics from DecoArt because they have excellent one-coat coverage on most surfaces.
Attach the blue floral ribbon around the purple rim and the purple rick rack ribbon around the gray rim of the clay pots with a glue gun and glue sticks. Add polka dot cheeks by dipping a new pencil eraser into Bubblegum Pink acrylic craft paint. Set aside to dry. TIP: You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you would have to wait for it to dry.
Cut a long skinny triangle from orange craft foam. Attach two wiggle eyes, and one carrot nose to each snowman with a glue gun and glue sticks. Draw a smile from cheek to cheek with the MONO Twin permanent black marker. TIP: Orange felt, or cardstock would also work for this project, use what you have on hand. The MONO Twin is a versatile marker to craft with because it has a larger bullet tip and an extra fine tip, which makes it perfect for all types of applications.
Finish the Dollar Tree Christmas Crafts Clay Pot Snowman earmuffs, measure, and cut a silver tinsel chenille stem to 6” long. Bend into a “U” shape and glue to either side of the gray and purple snowman. Attach blue tinsel pom poms over the cut end of each stem using a glue gun and glue sticks. Repeat with the blue chenille stem and purple tinsel pom poms on the purple and blue snowman. To create an ornament, cut a 12” length of natural jute twine, tie it in a loop with a knot, and attach it to the top of the clay pot with a glue gun and glue sticks.
