I'd like to pause here and mention Louie's school program. It was FANTASTIC! They do a great job every year and it is a wonderful way to really get into the Spirit of the Season! A few "shout-outs" to two of Louie's BFFs...Joe did a great job with the opening second grade reading and Andrew did a great job playing Santa and popping out of the chimney! Fun times!
So, with that type of day...I didn't even THINK about ornaments until about an hour ago. Luckily I found this little gem here at Craft Goodies! I heart the absolute cuteness and easy factor of these little snowmen. And you can get as carried away as possible...or stay as simple as I did!
Here's what you need:
I found these empty ornaments at Michael's and they're PLASTIC! And they were 79 CENTS! Because of the time crunch I raided the construction paper box, but some cute scrapbook paper would be great to use, too. I hole punched the black to make eyes & a mouth and then I cut out a triangle from the orange to make a nose. Then I enlisted the help of my three year old and told him to "stuff" Frosty!
You get the idea. Fill up your ornament with mini-marshmallows. J. did his best stuffing while his tongue was hanging out. He pulled it back in when he spotted the camera. Anyway, fill up the bulb, but don't overstuff. Then put the top back on and glue on your eyes, nose & mouth. And TAA DAH!
You have achieved Homemade Christmas Cuteness in about five minutes!
