We are having a great week around here with Craft Lightning. Today I am sharing my mirror ball snowman ornament. He is too cute and will look great on your tree. Follow the step by step instructions below to make your own. Craft Lightning is where we share crafts that take 15 minutes or less every day. You can see what our partner blogs are sharing at the bottom of this post so don’t miss those. You can also see what you missed by checking out day 1, day 2, and day 3. Now onto today’s great quick and easy Christmas crafts.
To make this mirror ball snowman ornament you will need:
- Mirror ball ornaments (the ones around 2 inches work best and you will need 3)
- Snowman hat and scarf (the one I used is sold out but you can click here to get this one instead)
- Scrap paper
- Paint brush
- Hot glue and glue gun
- Black and orange paint (I love the Americana Multi Surface)
First we need to get the disco balls into a snowman like shape. Remove the hangers from two of the ornaments as shown below. You can just pull the hanger out easily.
Everywhere where the mirror balls will be glued together, some of the mirrors need to be removed. I pulled these off fairly easily with my fingers.
Hot glue the mirror balls together and hold firmly until the glue sets. Then add on the scarf and hat with additional hot glue.
Use the end of your paint brush (the wrong end) to make a snowman face. The rounded end of your paint brush will make perfect little circles. Set aside and allow this to dry.
We need a snowman nose as well. Roll a piece of scrap paper into a cone as shown below and tape closed.
Trim the end to length then paint orange. If you have a piece of orange paper, even better! I used a wood dowel to paint my nose on so that it will dry without getting paint everywhere.
Once the face and nose are dry, glue the nose to the center of the face again with hot glue. NOTE: You might have to add a new hanger to your ornament if the original hanger on the mirror ball is covered up.
Add this fun mirror ball snowman ornament to your tree this Christmas. This easy to make ornament is great for the holiday season. The kids will love helping with this one and watching the lights dance off the finished product.
