snowman mason jar

This cheery little snow person is easy and fun to make, so it’s the perfect holiday DIY for kids (with a little grown-up help)! We’ll show you how to craft your own adorable Snowman Mason Jar – just take a look below for a supply list and instructions!
Step 1
Click here to view and print the template. Cut out the shapes.  
Step 2
Trace the circle and rectangle onto black cardstock and cut it out. Also, trace and cut out the leaves and the snowman's carrot nose.
Step 3
ADULT: Paint the Mason jar white, using a spouncer, and then paint the lid black. Apply a thin coat of paint so it dries quickly. You can always add a second coat if desired.
Step 4

Next, make a pom-pom for the snowman’s hat.  

TIP: Not sure how to make a pom-pom? Here's how:

   -  First, cut a length of yarn that’s about 10" long and set it aside.
   -  Holding the working yarn in one hand, loosely wrapping it around the cut out rectangle about 40-50 times, gently slide the entire bundle of looped yarn off the rectangle shape. Be sure to keep the bundle as still as possible so that you don’t disturb the loops.
   -  Knot the 10" piece of yarn as tightly as you can around the center of the bundle. The tighter you tie the knot, the fluffier your pom-pom. Make sure you tie the knot exactly between the looped ends, in order to make the pom-pom completely round.
   -  With scissors, snip open all the loops on both ends. Trim the tails from the center wrapped yarn to bend  (blend?) with the pom-pom.
   -  Trim your pom-pom with scissors into the shape of a square.
Step 5
ADULT: Hot glue the pom-pom to the top of the Beetle Black cardstock circle.
Step 6
Embellish the snowman's hat with cut-out leaves and a tiny red berry.
Step 7
ADULT: Add the button and carrot nose to your snowman's face.
Step 8
Lastly, cut some colorful yarn and wrap it around the Mason jar a few times, to resemble a scarf. Tie a bow to finish it to the side, on the front of the jar.
