On the 6th Day of Christmas, Make an Eco-Friendly Frosty Ornament

on December 18, 2012

On the 6th day of Christmas, we want to share this fun DIY and eco-friendly Christmas ornament project! It’s a great homemade craft the kids will love.

Eco- Friendly Frosty Ornament

ImageWhat You’ll Need:

  • 3 white jar lids (approximately 11/2″, 2″, and 2 1/2″ in diameter)
  • Scissors
  • Cotton batting
  • Felt (white, black, orange, red, light green, and dark green),
  • Hot-glue gun
  • Black bottle top
  • String

Make It:

1. Hot-glue the white jar lids edge to edge, in size order. Glue a slight mound of batting on the inside of each lid.

2. From felt, cut two white and two black circles for eyes, an orange circle for the nose, a red semicircle for the mouth, and three dark-green circles for buttons.

3. Glue all of the elements in place.

4. Cut a 1/2″ x 8″ strip of light-green felt and fringe the ends. Wrap it around the snowman’s “neck” and glue to secure.

5. Glue the bottom edge of the bottle top to the center of a 1 1/2″ black felt circle, then glue hat to the top of the smallest lid.

6. Glue a loop of string to the top of the ornament to hang.
