I just love a cute snowman ornaments. I made 6, well actcually 7 of them, with some upcycled and traditional items for containers and then some Poly-fil to give them the snowmen look. I made 2 different types, one set is a cute snowmen face, then other are fun melted snowmen that the kids love to make since they are so easy!

The first set of snowmen I made are all cute ones filled with Fairfield Poly-fil® Classic Bean Bag filler in three type of containers: ornament ball, plastic water bottle, and empty spice jar.
The second second set of ornaments are all in the same set of containers, but this time they are "melted" snowmen, a little fun twist on the smae ideas using mostly the samy supplies.
Learn how to make these ornaments in the video below.
The supplies I used are the ball ornaments, plastic water bottles, empty spice jars, Fairfield World Pol-Fil® Classic Bean Bag Filler, felt, colored paper, scissors, hole punch, Xyron® Sticker Maker, google eyes, paint, and twine.
I started with the tradinatal ball ornament. Mine are glass balls, but you can also get them in plastic. I used a funnel to fill the jar with Poly-fil® Bean Back filler, but a roller up paper cone will do the job as well.
I transferd the Poly-fil® Classic Bean Filler into a jar for a little easier use.
I cut out the nose and eyes with paper with scissors and a whole punch to make the perfect sized eyes. I rn the paper bits in my Xyron Sticker Maker to make them all into sticker, it is so easy! Then just stick them on to make the face.
Don't foget to add in the google eyes!
I added the twine to the top after placing the cap back on. I also made the melted version, but instead of paper for the face bits, I used felt to add a little texture and only added in half the amount Poly-fil® Classic Bean Filler.
The next snowman set is using a upcycle plastic waterbottle. Make sure to clean and dry the bottle and take the label off the outside. I also like to use a short bottle, but a tall bottle looks great too! To make the string at the top work I drilled holes in the top to run the twine through.
I also added some washi tape around the cap to make it pretty!
Last set is using upcycle jars. I used spice jars, but any jar will work. I also drilled holes in the top and then painted it.
You can make these cute snowmen in any size jar, and they do not have to be ornaments, they can just be a fun decor piece.
