This mason jar snowman craft is almost too cute for words!
We are often holiday crafting because it’s fun to make things to give to friends and family for Christmas. This mason jar snowman is no different. Simply filled with homemade treats or store bought candy, this snowman would make the perfect gift!
We are slightly obsessed with snowmen as proven by this alphabet block snowman craft, this snowman magnet craft, this melted snowman ornament, this wooden peg snowman craft or this cork snowman ornament. Clearly we love our snowman crafts so it made total sense to create this cute mason jar snowman this year.
Materials that you’ll need to create this craft:
- 500 ml wide mouth mason jar
- White acrylic paint
- Black acrylic paint
- Black puffy paint
- Paint brush
- 1 – orange pipe cleaner
- 2 – large googly eyes
- Red gingham ribbon
- 1 – 2″ cork
- Hot glue gun
- Hot glue sticks
- Mod Podge (optional)
How to make this mason jar snowman:
1. Paint the entire jar white (this can take up to three coats for good coverage).
2. Paint the lid and cork black.
3. Seal with a coat of Mod Podge (optional).
4. Allow the jar to completely dry.
5. Cut off approx. 10″ of ribbon and glue it around the base of the lid.
6. Cut off about 5″ of the pipe cleaner and twist it into a nose shape.
7. Glue the nose to the center front of the jar.
8. Glue the eyes above the pipe cleaner nose.
9. Use the black puffy paint to create a smile.
So cute right?! I love the texture that all the different elements bring to this mason jar snowman, his features really stand out.
