Lightbulb Glass Ball Ornament Snowmen

SUPPLIES:

6 white or silvery-white glass ornament balls
acrylic paint in black, pink, and orange
scraps of fabric
4 pairs of pom poms, your choice of colors
2- 14" long strips cut from flannel or an old scarf
craft or hot glue
small paint brush

INSTRUCTIONS:

Keep ornaments in their tray if possible to make for a sturdy placeholder while you work.

Faces
Using paint brush and black paint, paint on simple dot eyes and mouths. Use orange paint to give each snowman a nose, and botch on pink paint for cheeks.

Earmuffs
Using scraps of solid colored fabric, fashion headband for earmuffs, glue in place across top of ornament, just below the top of the ornament. Glue pom poms at each end of the headband to form earmuffs.

Note: You may need to trim one side of each pom pom to "flatten" it a bit to allow for easier application.

Scarved Snowmen
For the snowmen that are wearing scarves, follow instructions above for faces. Next, at the middle of the strip of scarf, glue to the top of the ornament, above the snowman's eyes. Carefully glue in place, working your way around the face on both sides until both ends meet near the bottom of the ornament. Tie together and glue any areas that are out of place.

Red face Snowman From A Lightbulb? Yep!

SUPPLIES:

burnt out light bulb
rubbing alcohol
white acrylic paint
gold cord or ribbon
child's sock
scrap material
two buttons
4 toothpicks
Fiberfil cotton batting
hot glue
scissors
black marker

INSTRUCTIONS:

Wipe bulb down with rubbing alcohol, this will help the paint adhere to the bulb. Let dry. Paint entire light bulb with white acrylic paint and let dry. Apply a second coat. If finish appears streaked, you can use a large paint brush or a sponge to blot on a "stucco" look. It is not necessary to paint the socket. Allow bulb to dry completely.

While bulb is drying, cut off the ribbing from the child's sock. Roll up a brim at one end and tie off the other end with gold ribbon or cord, tie in a bow. Leave about half an inch of sock above ribbon for the fluffy top, fringe ends. Add a bit of Fiberfil to the inside of the hat. Cut a tiny square of fabric and glue to the front brim of the hat.

From the remaining material on the sock, cut a rectangle, about 2 inches wide and 1 1/2 inches long. Place a small amount of Fiberfil in the center, roll up jelly roll style and glue together. Glue ends closed. Take one of the toothpicks and carefully cut/break in half. Insert pointed side of each toothpick into the muff on either side.

Once light bulb is dry, glue the muff to the belly of the bulb, below the neck and above the fattest part of the bulb. Glue the toothpicks to the bulb. Using another toothpick, cut into fourths. Using the sections that do not have pointed ends, glue to the toothpick arms that are already in place on the bulb. This will create the elbow to the shoulder. Glue to the elbow and to the bulb.

Fit hat snugly over socket of light bulb and glue in place. To create the hanger, tie a long piece of ribbon into a loop. With the hanging ends, tie around the hat underneath the brim (roll it down out of your way). Loop tie should be positioned at the back of the hat. Tie ribbon tight and snip off extra ends. Roll brim back up to cover ribbon.

Fashion a scarf from scrap material and tie carefully around neck, glue in place. Fringe ends of scarf with scissors. Glue two buttons to belly area, tuck top button underneath muff halfway. With one of the remaining pointed toothpicks that you cut into fourths, glue on for nose. Carefully dot on eyes with black marker. Hang!

Special note: You may not use all the toothpicks that the instructions call for. They are easily split when broken or cut, so we allowed for that with extras.
