Hey Y'all! Did you catch the first half of mason jar crafts yesterday by some incredible bloggers? Well today we have the second half of us revealing our projects. I decided to do a fun jar for kids to make a "Build An Ice Cream Snowman Kit." How fun is that?
I think he is a cutie.
And I know what you might be thinking.
But sometimes it's ok to eat yellow snow. (giggle)
These guys are super easy to make and are perfect for the kids (or grown ups) to have a night of fun. Just fill them up with ice cream, add some candy faces and you have a fun activity and dessert all rolled in one!
To make the cute little snowman heads, I first made a pom pom from white yarn. I used a hole punch on black, sparkly, stiffened felt for the eyes and mouth and cut a little bit of orange felt for the nose.
I glued their cute little noggins onto card stock circles that I traced and cut out using the jar lids as a template.
The red gingham scarves are wire ribbon and blue scarves are felt ribbon. I just tied them around the neck of the jar and tied them off to the side. Now he's dressed!
I used red
In the back of the snowman are these cute little snowman part bags all ready to decorate your little man. Or snow woman. Snow person? You get me. They are filled with mini chocolate chips for eyes and mouth, a candy corn nose, two mini candy canes (arms), and m&m's for buttons. (And I love my label maker more than is healthy). Just hole punch the top of the mini ziplock bags and you are good to go.
My kids had a blast decorating and then eating their creations. Blogger kids have the best life getting to "try out" our creations, right? Now go get your supplies and make some of these cuties for the holidays this year. :)
