crafting with grandma - Melted Snowman Ornaments!

A few months ago I posted about making a melted snowman ornament, I said it is a; "fun, simple ornament which you could involve your grandchildren in making - they could give them to teachers, coaches, neighbors . . . to anyone for whom they need to have a nice, little gift!"

Wednesday I bought clear ornaments, white glitter, tiny black pompoms and orange felt so Josiah and Caleb could make melted snowman ornaments for their teachers at church - and school for Josiah. Both boys had so much fun helping to pour the glitter into the ornaments and then adding the pompom eyes and felt nose to each ornament! The finished projects turned out very cute!

I had them trace their hands onto paper lunchbags and add some Christmas stickers to it and we had personalized gift bags for their ornaments! Josiah had a lot of fun handing the ornaments out to his karate teachers and the children's pastors at Church - and they all loved their gifts!

So, if you are looking for something which is simple to make and results in a great gift, consider making melted snowmen ornaments - even your young grandchildren can do this one! (Caleb is just two!)

Enjoy!
