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.
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.
Your guests will be delighted to find these at their place!
