Happy Christmas in July! 🎄☃️😊
I though it might be fun to share some crafty Christmas ideas this month to help us all get a jump on some handmade gifts and decorations for the holidays. Hopefully, the world will be in a better place by then and we will all be able to celebrate with family and friends. So we’ll want to be ready for that – not rushing around trying to finish up last minute gifts!

Today I’m sharing this cute Wood Snowman Face Ornament that’s super fun to make. It would be a great project to make with the kids!
You’ll need wood snowflake ornaments (3-4 inches), 1-inch split wood balls, white acrylic paint, an orange and black ultra fine point sharpie, some twine, clear matte sealing spray, and a strong craft glue (I like E6000 clear adhesive).
Here are some links to supplies:
- Wood snowflake ornaments (I got mine on clearance after Christmas last year. they are about 4-inches across. The linked ones are a little smaller, but I think they would still work great.)
- 1-inch split wood balls
- White acrylic paint (this is a great set to add to your craft room)
- Orange and Black Ultra Fine Point Sharpie Markers (or acrylic paint with a fine paint brush)
- Natural Jute Twine
- Foam brushes
- Clear Matte Sealing Spray
Paint the snowflakes, both sides and the edges, with 2 to 3 coats of white paint – letting the paint dry between coats. Also paint the the split balls with 2 to 3 coats of white paint. Once the paint is completely dry, draw a snowman face on the split balls.
Using a strong adhesive, glue the snowman face to the center of the snowflake. Let dry and the spray both sides of the snowflake with the sealing spray – you’ll want to do this outside! Attach twine to hang your ornament and you’re finished!
These would be a fun addition to a snowman Christmas tree, a cute tag on a plate of homemade treats for friends, a little something for your kids to give their friends, or add it to a gift card for that great teacher.
You could also use red/white bakers twine to hang your ornaments – I think that would be so cute on a jar of peppermint hot chocolate mix for a fun gift. I’m getting so many ideas…I need to make more ornaments. 😉
