Happy Winter! This time of year can tend to drag on as the days are shorter, temperatures are colder, and people wait patiently for the first signs of spring. That being said, there are plenty of activities to keep yourself occupied as the cold weather thaws away slowly. Easy for all ages to make; let’s create bottle cap snowmen ornaments! 

What you need: 

1. (3) bottle caps for each snowman 

2. White paint

3. Black and orange paint pens (sharpies work too)

4. Small pom-poms (choose any color you’d like) 

5. Sheets of felt material (choose any color you’d like)

6. Hot glue gun (glue sticks work too but with better results glue guns are preferred)

7. Winter or holiday ribbon

8. Small buttons (choose any color you’d like) 

Let’s begin: 

  1. Before we begin, assemble your ornaments pieces. With your colorful felt you can cut and create small hats, and scarves for your snowman. It’s simple. Just cut out 2D shapes of winter beanies and strips of felt (6/8 inches) for your scarves. 
  2. You will glue those to the front of your snowman. 
  3. Cut your holiday ribbon to a length that is suitable for your liking. Remember, this is going to be used to hang your ornament, so whatever length you cut make sure it’s enough when folded.  
  4. With the bottle caps, you’re going to paint the entirety of it white, front and back! This task may feel tedious, but you’re going to want to repeat this if the white paint is streaking on the first coat. Wait until the paint is completely dry to continue.  
  5. Once your paint is dry, take your markers and draw on the snowman’s eyes, coal and nose.
  6. Now, assemble all of your pieces together. Start simple: hot glue all your bottle caps together. Glue as you would a chain, from top to bottom, not back-to-back.  
  7. Next, hot glue your ribbon to the back of the snowman’s head. Make sure it’s shaped like a loop so it can hang on hooks or branches!
