Snowman Face Ornaments

Friday, December 21, 2012

We made these our last week of school before our break ,
we are going to hang them on our memory tree .

You will need:
*Clear glass or plastic ball ornaments 
*Artificial snowflakes
*Rubbing Alcohol
*Fabric paint ( in squeeze bottles ) black
and orange.

Remove the top of the ornament and fill with fake snow . Use the eraser end of a pencil to push the snow down a bit so you can get the ornament nice and full  , if  you pack the snow to loosely then as it settles , the ball will no longer be full of snow . Replace the ornament top . Wipe down the outside of the ornament with rubbing alcohol and wait a few minutes for it to dry . Using the black paint , squeeze out 2 dots for eyes and 6 dots for a mouth . Using the orange paint , paint on the nose . Place on top of a cup to dry . We took a sharpie and put our initials and date on the bottom .

I had craft projects and making snacks planned to do with the kids over our break but this is my 8th day with this flu and lets just say that the flu is harsh , it will not let go , all the kids have it now . We are postponing Christmas , at least getting together with family , we don't want other people getting this flu , believe me it's terrible . I didn't even finish the kids stockings so we are not going to have any this year , it's ok with them they know what Christmas is all about , I let them have an early present today , it was a stop sign , they have been wanting one for a while , they love to ride their riding toys in the house in the winter , they don't know it yet but under the tree they have a traffic light to go with it and a gas pump . I can't wait to watch them open their presents .
