Snowman Ornament

Add a festive touch to your tree with this cute ornaments your kids can make in minutes. 
Three white cotton balls (or pompoms)
Two wiggle eyes
Red, black and orange felt
Tacky glue or hot glue
Popsicle stick
Yarn or string

Glue cotton balls to popsicle stick.  Cut an 1/2" inch wide by eight inch strip of red felt for the scarf. Tie the "scarf" around the snowman's neck.  Glue on wiggle eyes. Cut a small triangle from the orange felt for the nose. Glue on snowman.

Cut a rectangle out of black felt three inches by four inches long. Glue the short ends together to make the hat. Trace around the top of the hat to make a circle to fit. Cut out and glue on one end of the hat. Trace around the bottom of the hat, making the circle slightly larger to make the brim. Cut out. Stuff the hat lightly with felt scraps to help it keep the shape. Glue the brim to the bottom of the hat. Glue the hat onto the snowman's head and anchor onto the popsicle stick.

Cut buttons out of scraps of black felt and glue on snowman. 
Make a loop from a piece of yarn attach to the back of the popsicle stick.  Let dry before hanging on the tree.

Alternative - Attach a magnet to the back and use to hang art on the refrigerator or attach a pinback so you can wear it.
