Ornament Exchange and Holiday How To (Tutorial)

I signed up for Pampering Beki’s Ornament exchange.

I received the most adorable ornament from Kate at http://thequirkyredhead.com.

I sent her a melted Utah Snowman.

Here’s how I made it.
What you’ll need:
-beads for eyes
-orange foam sheet (or scrap) for nose
-glasses (I found these in the doll making section of the craft store)
-scrap of fabric for the scarf
-glitter glue
-skinny tweezers
-ribbon and tag
-clear ornament bulbs
-twig-ish things for the arms (I found chicken feet and cut them and thought they worked well)

If you can find these it would be cool
-mini hat (mine wouldn’t fit through the hole of the bulb boo
-mini pipe
How to make it:
1. Squeeze some glitter glue in, spread it with a Q-tip if it needs some help
2. Use tweezers and carefully place everything where you want them
3. Attach a tag with a ribbon
4. Let dry
