Snowman Jar

Adding a few embellishments to a painted jar is a quick and easy Christmas make that is great for last minute gifts.

How to Make

  1. Paint the outer of the jam jar with white porcelain paint and back as per the instructions to seal the paint. Allow to cool fully and add a second coat if needed.
  2. Cut a length of green ribbon and wrap around the lower portion of the jar and secure to in place with a few dabs of hot glue.
  3. Cut a small triangle from the orange adhesive felt to create the nose of the snow man and remove the backing and secure to the front of the jar.
  4. With small dabs of hot glue secure two larger black mini pom pom to create the eyes and a further five for the snowmanÂ’s mouth.
  5. On to the lid of the jar secure a cluster of four mini pom poms to create a bobble on the top to finish.

Top Tip

Work in neat smooth strokes when painting the jar to create a more even finish.
