Directions for making the snowman
Remove the ornament hanger and paint the ornament white using a sponge. Paint the face of the snowman.
Using the modeling compound, roll it into a cone shape and then paint it an orange color. Apply varnish to the painted ornament and while still wet, sprinkle it with glitter.
Stick the nose to the face with the hot glue gun. Put the ornament hanger back into the ornament and glue the holly and berries to the hanger so that it is covered well. Paint the lid white and glue the doily to the lid. Hot glue the snowman head to the top of the doily and lid.
Layer the jar with graham crackers on the bottom, marshmallows in the middle and chocolate pieces on the top. Glue white buttons to the front of the jar.
For the recipe tag, print your recipe on the white card stock: “S’mores Snowman Soup: Toast the marshmallows, then place the chocolate between two graham cracker cookies. Mmmm Good!”
Glue the white card stock in the center of a slightly large piece of pink card stock.
Replace the snowman head lid to the jar and tie a red bow, attached to the recipe card under the chin and a red plaid bow around the top of the jar. Watch the smiles as your friends open this cute gift that was made with love! Inspiration for this project came from an old issue of Crafts ‘n Things magazine.
