Have you ever looked at an empty container and envisioned something else? I have. Yup! Look what I’m sharing with you today!
Recycled “Mini Toppers” Container Snowman
Empty Mini-Toppers container
Piece of string/baker’s twine/yarn
Sharpie Paint Pens in Orange and Black
Step 1: Remove the label from your Mini-Topper container
Step 2: Cut your sheet of felt in half shortwise.
Step 3: Get your E-6000 glue (tip, put some vaseline on the tip of your E-6000 container before you close it to keep it from gluing shut)
Step 4: Glue your felt onto the top of your Mini-Topper container, folding the bottom over to make a “cuff”. It will take a few minutes for the glue to set so you will need to hold onto the felt until it sets up.
Step 5: Cut the top of your felt down in strips approximately 1/2 the length.
Step 6: Using bakers twine/string/yarn, tie the hat at the base of your cut strips….this will make a “pom pom” on the top of your hat. Trim the strips down if needed to create a nice “pom pom” shape. I trimmed mine down about an inch.
Step 7: You will use sharpie PAINT pens to draw details onto your snowman.
Step 8: Draw on coals eyes, mouth and buttons with the black paint pen. Draw on your carrot nose with the orange paint pen.
Here’s the finished snowman.
I can’t believe how fast these 20 days of inspiration are going. I hope you have found some inspiration. I’ll see you tomorrow with Day 17’s project!
