Snowman Jar

Hi, friends!  As most of you know, I’m attending the CHA {Craft and Hobby Assn} MegaShow this weekend, and I’m busy taking in as much as I can so I can come back and share it all with you!  In the meantime, I wanted to make sure there was no shortage of inspiration here on the blog while I’m away.  So, today, we have a guest with us to share a fun and simple upcycled project you can do with your kiddos to beat the winter blues!

Here she is; let’s give a warm artsy welcome to Carly Leen!

carlyHello, my name is Carly and I have twin 2 year old boys. When I tell you I had no bigger dream than to be a mom, I am telling you the honest truth. 🙂 I do not take a day for granted with my two “bears”, and I enjoy showing and sharing my ideas on 2 Bears and Counting. I also have been a teacher for 5 years and teach Kindergarten.  I have been home full time with my boys for the last 2 years. My heart and passion is spreading the word on how important the early childhood years are to our children, so it is also a dream come true to have created my new facebook page and blog Please follow us on our adventures through childhood, we are grateful for every fan that joins our page/adventure 🙂 


Snowman Jar

– 6 oz glass baby food jar

First, paint the jar with the decoupage formula.

Then, stick the tissue paper squares on to cover the entire surface.  You can be messy with this. 🙂

Then, cover the entire jar with glue/Mod Podge again so it’s smooth.  Finally, add the face details and seal with decoupage formula.

Voilá!  An adorable homemade snowman!  I even put an LED tealight in him at night to watch him glow.  The boys love seeing the snowman come alive at nighttime.

What do you think, friends?  I thought these were super cute; a fun twist on our Jack-o-Lantern Luminaries and BOO Bottles.  Thanks to Carly for sharing this fun and easy kiddo craft with us today!  Hope it inspires you to make a few of your own to light up the cold winter nights!
