DIY Snowman Ornament


The youngest makes a new Christmas ornament every year.  She wanted to make a pine cone snowman this year, but we were missing the most important component.  So, we improvised.

What you'll need:
- 3 large white craft pom poms
- 4 small colored craft pom poms
- 2 toothpicks
- 1 popsicle stick (cut in half)
- paint (for the skis)
- paintbrush
- pipe cleaners
- googly eyes
- felt/fabric
- scissors
- exacto knife
- hot glue

The ornament is easy to make.  Almost every piece is hot glued.  For the "hands", the pipe cleaner is bent to form a small opening.  The toothpicks slide into the opening.

Strange and Unusual


"Well, I've read through that handbook for the recently deceased. It says: 'live people ignore the strange and unusual'. I myself am strange and unusual."
