My mother, brothers and I used to make ornaments every year so this isn't anything all that new to me. I did some idea searching online and decided on some cute little snowmen made from bottle tops. I have one finished so far and the girls will continue to work on theirs tomorrow. I'm excited to see how theirs turn out.
Here is my finished product. We painted the bottle tops white, then I used a hot glue gun to glue them together. I also did a little crocheting for the hat and scarf and simply used a black marker to add the dots for the face and buttons.
This year is going to be very tight in the gift buying department. It's always hard to be shy on cash around Christmas time when you have kids. So I'm trying to make my girls a few gifts to fill up the empty space under the tree. So far I've only managed one gift idea. It came from something that popped up on my Facebook feed a few weeks back. I don't even remember who posted it.
I went to the dollar store and bought three boxes for $1 each. They are what is holding up the snowman in the picture above and the pictures below show the silver box, the saying, and some simple stationary I printed up and cut to fit inside the box.
