Snowman Christmas Tree Bauble

Following on from yesterday …….. and what to do with the rest of a  box of 48, red, green, white and silver baubles once you’d taken all the green ones out to make Ninja Turtles ……..
Well, you can make snowmen faces with the white ones (another idea found on Google)
I used black flat backed gems to the eyes and mouth stuck on the E6000 glue, to make sure they don’t drop off …….
…… and then made a pile of carrot noses (using one I already had as a guide), from orange Fimo clay, which then had to be baked.
Once the Fimo had hardened, it was time to give Mr Snowman his nose, and that’s when I think he got his personality!  I used E6000 again to stick it on and then kept him in an upright position overnight until the glue took hold.

A perfect use for the white baubles. Can't wait to see what you do with the others.

Hi Helen. My favourite winter character today, and so easy to make, I love him. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the red and silver baubles. Take care.

He is absolutely the cutest, his nose really does give him such a cheery personality! And good thinking too using the flat backed gems for the eyes and mouth, that is very clever I must remember that - he'd make a lovely gift for anyone, boxed up in a clear box with some shredded tissue paper...

Another great idea - I love him on his 'back' in the top of the jar LOL!

Helen - for the red ones do a Santa motif!! Put a black ribbon around it and then finish with a little silver square with a smaller black square inside. I made some last year and now I wish I still had one or at least have taken a picture!! Thanks for all your posts!
