Hello, hello Seven Thirty Three friends!  Heather from Twin Dragonfly Designs here. Today I am sharing one of our all-time favorite DIY ornaments!  My kids and I make these every year for gifts and they are a huge hit with family and friends.  I just love how whimsical these Melted Snowman Ornaments are!

Create carrot noses and stick arms using the polymer clay.  Be sure to oven bake the clay to set the shape following the directions on the package.  

Cut fabric scraps into tiny scarves about 1/4″ x 2″.  

Fill the ball with about 2 Tbsp salt and add in the clay nose and two twigs, the scarf and several pieces of peppercorn for eyes, buttons ad mouth.

Attach a piece of twine to the top of the ornament for hanging.  

My boys make two versions of these – one with a scarf and one with arms.  We posted the full Melted Snowman Tutorial a few years ago.  This is a great project for kids and parents of all ages *wink*.
