Handcrafted Christmas Tree Ornaments {Christmas Traditions Series}

DIY Snowman Christmas Ornament


The-Celebration-Shoppe-Kim-Byers-06676nHi everyone! I’m Kim of The Celebration Shoppe and I’m thrilled to be joining The Crafting Chicks today to share one of my family’s favorite Christmas traditions.

Our Christmas tree tells a story. The holiday story of our family. And I love every inch of it!

Almost every ornament was either collected during a holiday outing, given to us as a gift or handmade by my sweet babies. There is nothing designed or matchy-matchy about it, but it’s completely beautiful and wonderfully sentimental!

This paint dipped, hand-drawn snowman ornament is our latest ornament addition. To make these with your kiddos, you’ll need:

  • circular, flat front, clear plastic ornaments (I picked mine up at JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores)
  • pearl white craft paint
  • orange and black Sharpies
  • flat paint dish or plate
  • sheet of paper

To make your own:

  1. Trace an outline of the ornament on a sheet of white paper and draw a simple snowman face in the outline to get your proportions correct
  2. Place paint on a flat surface and roll the back side of the ornament around in the paint until covered
  3. Flip ornament over and allow to dry completely
  4. Using the guide you or your child drew on the sheet of paper, draw the snowman face on the ornament with Sharpies
  5. Hang and enjoy

In my opinion, there is nothing sweeter than something your little one made for you.

Here are a few of my other favorite holiday projects. I hope you’ll stop by and visit me!
