A Very Pinteresting Christmas Linkup 2014, Day 11: Snowman Ornaments

I showed you on Day 3 the projects that my little buddies helped make. Today's project involved a fun photo shoot with them. Then I made them into snowman ornaments for their Christmas trees. I sent them home before Thanksgiving. Their Momma's loved them also!  This craft was inspired by this post on Living Locurto

Supplies needed:
Mod Podge (I used glossy)
foam brush for mod podge
round foam brush for snowman
paint pens
white acrylic paint
wallet size photos printed on copy paper.
glass ornaments

1. Cut the faces out of the copy paper. Mod podge the cut faces onto the glass balls. Be sure to position it high enough and at an angle so you have enough room to paint your snowman around the head and below. Let it dry completely.

2. Using the round sponge brush, dab paint around the face. It's okay if you get a little on the face. Then move down to your next snowball making it a little bigger, then to your next. Let it dry.
3.  Take a black paint pen and give it buttons, hat, and arms. Use another color of paint pen and write the name and date on the back. Then embellish it with more snowflakes if you wish. 
4. Then tie a cute ribbon or burlap onto it for hanging. 

Super cute and super fun.
