Baby Food Jar Snowmen Decorations

Do you ever wonder what you can do with all of those empty baby food jars? I know its a little early for Christmas but you can make snowmen decorations. 

Materials Needed:
3 Baby food jars with lids (for each person)
White Paint
Plastic bowl (for paint)
Glue Gun and Glue sticks
Felt and trimmings

  • Clean the jars out well. 
  • Pour the white paint into each jar.
  • Once it's inside swish it all around and make sure the whole inside is completely covered.
  • Let dry
  • Paint the OUTSIDE of the lids white and let dry. 
  • Hot glue the jars on top of each other.
  • Make a little stocking cap.
  • Hot glue buttons down the front, a piece of orange twist paper for the nose on the top jar, and paint a happy, goofy little face on the top jar.
  • Hot glue some little twigs on the sides of the second jar for arms.
  • Glue a scrap of material for a scarf

Cute but no replacement for the Christmas classics
3.0 out of 5 stars Snowmen at Christmas is a cute book. The illustrations are creative and colorful. I found the text, in rhyme, trite and sounding a bit too much in format like "The Night Before Christmas." My 6-year old was not interested and my 3-year old was mildly curious about the storyline. I would have rather borrowed from the library. 

I think the snowmen in this book are Raymond Briggs's Snowman's buddies. Check them out!! Also, the dog looks like Father Christmas's dog! You will LOVE this book, an excellent companion to "The Snowman" and "Frosty the Snowman", etc.
