Vintage Snowman Ornament with Smoothfoam - 99+ Handmade Gifts Bloghop

Hi everyone, I am so happy to be a part of the 99+ Handmade Christmas Gifts Blog Hop this week.

Today I want to share a fun ornament I made using Smoothfoam.  I am trying to get ahead of the game this year with my Christmas prep, and I have been busy making ornaments. This cute snowman is one of my favorites- I love the vintage vibe it has going on.

Supplies:
1 3/4" Diameter Smoothfoam Ball
2 1/2" Diameter Smoothfoam Ball
Acrylic Paint, Paintbrush, Glitter Modge Podge, Ribbon, Buttons, Lace, Paper flower, Molding Paste, Glitter, Rub-on, Pearl tipped pin, adhesive, small wood dowel

1. Paint the balls with white craft paint, then a coat of Glitter Modge Podge. I sliced the tiniest bit off one side of each ball, then adhered them together using a wood dowel and adhesive.
2. I used a rub-on for the face and adhered buttons on the bottom ball.
3. Wrap a ribbon around the neck of the snowman, using a pearl tipped pin to hold it in place.
4. Stack buttons together to make a hat, add a small but of lace around the brim; add molding paste on the top and brim of the hat, sprinkle with glitter while wet. When dry add a small flower.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Be sure to check out the Smoothfoam Pinterest Boards for more great ideas.
