Snowman Ornament or Napkin Ring

This Snowman Ornament or Napkin Ring is an easy craft that either kids or adults can do. I made these and used them for napkin rings one Christmas. Later, we used them as ornaments on the tree.

Snowman Ornament or Napkin Ring




1″ wooden ball with hole*     

1″ tall wooden flower-pot with hole

Black  & White acrylic paint

Permanent Marker – 1 black and 1 orange (or use a dab of orange paint)

12″ of raffia for each ornament or ribbon    (be sure to use a ribbon that will make a knot big enough so the ball doesn’t slide through)

 *To use a larger ball, adjust the size of the wooden pot accordingly. It should just rest on top of the ball. Use a thicker and longer piece of raffia, too.

Fold raffia in half and tie a knot approx. 2/3 of the way down from the loop

Paint the flower-pot black

Paint the ball white

Add face by making little dots with a permanent marker

Add eyes and an orange nose  (Color the end of a toothpick orange and then cut off and glue on for the nose.  It is easier, however,  to use an orange marker and draw a triangle)

Push the loop end through the ball from bottom to top

Push through the pot the same way. 

Push the ball and flower-pot down to the knot and you’re done! So easy! You can use this as a napkin ring and then hang on your tree.
