Glittered Snowman Ornament Two Ways

{This is a tutorial that I shared over at Under the Table and Dreaming last week.}
Today I am sharing a tutorial with you on how to make a SUPER cute Glittered Snowman Ornament...two ways!
Glittered Snowman Ornament: Version One

You will need:
a clear glass ornament
black and orange felt
Mod Podge
foam brush
white glitter
clear gloss spray paint
Cut out two round black eyes and one orange triangle from your felt, then attach the felt pieces to the ornament using a hot glue gun. Using a foam brush apply Mod Podge to the ornament being careful not to get any on the felt pieces. Cover the entire ornament with glitter and shake off any excess. Spray a light coat of clear spray paint onto the ornament to help set the glitter.
Tie on a piece of felt for a hanger, and you have a SUPER cute Glittered Snowman Ornament!
Now if you are like me, and you have more than a few curious little hands running around your house...and the thought of a glittered ornament brings visions of you & the vacuum cleaner being really good friends, then this second version of my Glittered Snowman Ornament is for YOU!

Glittered Snowman Ornament: Version Two

You will need:
a clear glass ornament {this could be done with plastic too to make it even more kid friendly}
Mod Podge
white glitter
black and orange Sharpies
Use the Sharpies and draw on two round black eyes and one orange triangle nose...I added in a cute smile too! Dilute a little bit of Mod Podge with a few drops of water, then add pour it into the ornament.
 Use your finger to cover the opening of the ornament and shake around the Mod Podge making sure to coat the entire inside surface of the ornament. Pour in some of your white glitter and shake it around {again making sure to coat the entire inside surface of the ornament}. Turn the ornament upside down and shake out any excess glitter.
Tie on some white yarn and you have a kid friendly version of a SUPER cute Glittered Snowman Ornament!

Pin It!

I love the idea of adding it to the inside of the ornament. Brilliant. And so cute.

I have a thing for snowmen...a serious thing for snowmen. (Maybe my husband should be worried, LOL) But what a great craft for my serious snowman fetish.

How clever to offer it two ways!! :) I love that. :) I think the glitter-on-the-outside is my fave. :)

Those are seriously the cutest! I love the look of the glitter on the outside, all textured. But I love how you change it up by adding it to the inside!
