Snowman Ornaments

At school we have a committee called the spirit committee. We try to do nice things to get people happy and keep people happy at school. One thing I like to do is make ornaments for the people in the school. Last year I made coke cans into apple ornaments. This year i decided to try snowmen. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out but thankfully everything came out great! I started with jingle bells. I make a very weird contraption to hang them on so i could spray paint them. This was the hardest part of the process. Everything else was super easy.

After I painted the bells,  I added the faces with paint pens. Black for the eyes and mouth, and orange for the nose. Then I cut small ribbons for the tops of the ear muffs. I glued those on with hot glue. After that, I matched the puff balls by color and glued them on with hot glue as well. I attached ornament hooks, but for most of them you didn't need them. They turned out really cute and I was pretty proud of myself :)
