Happy Thanksgiving-Week, friends!  I know it’s still just a little tiny bit early to be thinking about Christmas decorations {or is it?}, but my friend Kelly and I got together on Saturday night and made some of the cutest ornaments!  I just couldn’t wait until after Thanksgiving to show you, so here they are {well, some of them, anyway}…
Bottle Cap Snowman Ornaments
We got the idea from Kelly’s Pinterest board, where she had pinned this little guy from She Who Makes.  Here’s how we made ours:

Bottle Cap Snowman Ornaments Materials:

– bottle caps
– white, black, orange, and red acrylic paint
– paintbrushes
– ribbon
– hot glue gun and glue sticks
– buttons
– scissors
– optional: glitter and/or sparkle Mod Podge
STEP 1: Paint the inside of each bottle cap white.  It’s a little tricky getting it to coat completely, so you’ll probably need to so several coats, letting it dry in between.  You can paint the outsides too if you really want, but we didn’t.

STEP 2: Glue three bottlecaps to a piece of ribbon.  You’ll also want to put a bit of glue in between each bottlecap to hold them together.  Form a loop with the top of the ribbon and glue in place.  {Thanks to Kelly for being my hand model…you didn’t even know I took this pic, did you?  I’m so sneaky like that. ;)}

STEP 3: Use the end of a paintbrush or a toothpick to paint eyes, a nose, mouth and buttons on your snowmen.  Once they were dry, I added some sparkle Mod Podge to mine.

STEP 4: Tie a ribbon or yarn between the first and second bottle caps to make a scarf and accent with a button if you like.

Here are Kelly’s two snowmen:

…and here are mine.  She said they could be the hubby and me, so I think I need to make a little two-bottle-cap one to be Little Crafter, don’t you?

I’m all about it.  Easy, cute, and ridiculously cheap to make…my kind of crafting!  Stay tuned to see some of the other fun ornaments we made together!
Happy Crafting!
