With the Christmas season upcoming, it seems like I have to start earlier and earlier each year to do all the things I hope to do for the holiday! So this year I had a fun little idea for an ornament to do with the kids and I thought I’d share it with you today! I had some simple, unfinished wood blocks on hand, so I decided to create a rotating wood block DIY snowman ornament for our Christmas tree!
Wood Block DIY Snowman Ornament Supplies:
- Darice Medium Wooden Blocks
- White Chalk Paint
- Sharpie Markers OR Craft Paint
- Drill with Bit
- 7/8 inch Red Satin Ribbon & 3/16 inch Ribbon
I started by drilling holes in the top and bottom of each wood block right in the center. I used a drill bit big enough to fit my ribbon through comfortably. After they were all drilled, I used tape and a smaller drill bit, cut my ribbon and taped it onto the drill bit, then pushed the bit through the holes. This was the easiest way to string the blocks that I found.
After all three blocks were strung, I painted them white with Americana White Chalk Paint. Once dry, I added faces to the blocks using Sharpies but you could also use paint. I planned to use paint, but then recalled what a horrible painter I am and opted for the marker.
I love how it turned out…I added a little cap to one DIY snowman, made a girly snow-woman with eyelashes, added a bow and a scarf to another…you decorate as you see fit! And if you have older kids, this could be fun to do with Santa or elf faces too!! Hope you enjoyed!
