DIY: Melted Snowman Ornament

But he waved goodbye, saying don't you cry
I'll be back again someday!

I've revived a tradition. Before she passed away, my great-grandmother would make handmade ornaments every year for us (all of her great-grandchildren!) They were different every year, and now they have a special place on my tree and in my heart.

So I'm starting the same tradition for my relatives! (I know Henry is only 1, but I can't wait until I'm making these for great grand babies.) Here's my first year's ornament... And I love how they turned out!

Melted Snowman Ingredients:
Clear Glass or Plastic Ornaments
Snow- salt
Eyes/Buttons- peppercorns
Scarf- ribbon
Carrot Nose- baked Sculpey
You could also add little twigs for arms!

So simple and so cute!

Which is your favorite ornament on your tree?
