Melted Snowman Ornament
Click to see larger image

This is one of my favorite Ornaments on my tree. These are so easy to make.
Supplies:
Clear Glass Ornament
Envirotex
Ribbon (To hang Ornament)
Toothpicks (Painted orange & break in half)
Fabric Scraps (cut into tiny scarfs)
Black beads (For Eyes)
little twigs (For Arms)
Glitter (For a little sparkle)
Instructions:
Take top off ornament, set aside. Mix envirotex per instructions on bottle. Pour Envirotex in ornament & set back in box. Put a dash of glitter and all the little items inside and let dry overnight. Put lid back on & make a tag that says "Snowman, Keep Frozen. Do not Thaw!" Then tie ribbon for hanger.

Very clever and so cute. What is envirotex?

It's a plastic epoxy in liquid form that hardens as it drys. You can buy it at Michaels crafts.

that is such a great idea. I'm sure I won't remember it for next year! lol

do you fill the glass ornament completely with the envirotex and add the snowman stuff to look like it is floating or is the envirotex a coating for the inside of the ornament....very cute idea!

Just about an inch of envirotex in the bottom & try not to get it on the sides of the glass..YOU CAN USE A Little funnel. You can also put a little glitter to make it sparkly too.

Looking at the ornament, it looks like the eyes and carrot nose may be glued to something. Is this the case? I will be making these as gifts for X-mas 09. Thanks for your help. Tammy

They just harden into the epoxy. No glue needed.
