I love making gifts and crafts for the holiday season. This year I decided I would participate in a Holiday Bazaar that a friend has hosted for the past six years. Since I don’t have a budget I have had to get creative with what I have around the house to create with. I have hordes of math manipulative blocks that I have been saving for the right project. So I came up with the idea of a Melted Snowmen Earrings! I thought “Melted” would be a cute way to describe square Snowmen! So cute and so much fun to make!
~White and orange acrylic paint
~Black gel pen or black paint pen
~Needle nose pliers or round tip pliers
~Fixative of choice
~Flannel fabric scrapes
~Eye pins 2″
~Fish Hook Earrings
Step 1: Paint your 1/2″ x 1/2″ blocks white. You can use paint pens to make it less messy or just regular acrylic paint.
Step 2: Paint your face and buttons any way you choose. It can be a serious, silly or traditional face.
Step 3: Place your snowman on the eye pin and loop the top with your needle nose or round tip pliers. As you can tell I left plenty of wiggle room so that you can place your squares in the direction you wish.
Step 4: Attach your Fish Hook Earrings to your looped eye pin.
Step 5: Last add your scarf then you can adjust which direction you would like your snowman to face. Your scarf should be roughly 2” x 1/8”. I tied the scarf tight enough so that the square blocks would not move once the scarf was around the snowmen’s necks. Then I turned it to the side so that you could see the snowmen’s faces.
This is a great project to do with your children when they are having to miss school for a snow day! My girls loved making my DIY Melted Snowmen Earrings!
