I love taking objects and re-purposing them to create an entirely different object. For this cute snowman ornament craft, I took a paper mache lid from a hexagon box to create the shadow box effect. Simply add a few small embellishments and you will have yourself a very cute and original ornament. You can display this cute craft throughout the winter season. Let’s get started and see how easy it is to create your own shadowbox snowman ornament craft.
Shadowbox Snowman Ornament Craft Supplies:
- Darice Paper Mache Hexagon Box – (You will use just the lid.)
- Darice Assorted Sisal Trees.
- Darice Snowman Resin Ornaments.
- Darice Sparkle Tape or Washi Tape.
- Darice Foam Paint Brush.
- Darice Pom Pom Garland.
- Darice Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks.
- Double Sided Tape.
- Stickles Glitter Glue – (In Blue).
- Scrapbook Paper.
- Craft Paint.
Step 1. To begin this snowman ornament craft, paint the outside and the inside of the box a solid color. Coordinate the paint color with the piece of scrapbook paper that you will insert into the hexagon paper mache lid.
Step 2. Cut the piece of scrapbook paper to fit inside of the hexagon shape. Adhere the paper using double sided tape.
Step 3. Cover the outside of the snowman ornament craft with coordinating Washi tape.
Step 4. Hot glue additional embellishments into the shadow box. You can cut a shape out of scrapbook paper to layer on top of the background or a printed tag would also work well. Hot glue the pom pom trim around the edge of the hexagon shape too. Hot glue a ribbon to the top as well to finish off your snowman ornament craft.
There you have it! A cute and adorable snowman ornament craft that you can customize using so many different things. Not too mention, this would also make a cute present topper for that special someone. This similar snowman 3D gift tag idea would also make a great present topper/keepsake ornament.
