My two daughters are so excited for all of the holiday festivities, but one thing they love the most is snow and snowmen. We moved up to the Pacific Northwest from Southern California a year and a half ago and we ALL love the fact that we have an occasional snow day or two. Last year, our very first snow day happened the Friday morning before our Winter Break. My girls couldn’t believe their luck. They were up at 5:30 making not just any ordinary snowman, but a snow girl that had a necklace and a snow dog as well. I will never forget that day. My girls squealed with delight and we all played in the snow for what seemed like hours. Well, we also just had our first snow day of this season, over Thanksgiving Break and we were once again having family fun in the snow. Since it was just a dusting of snow and not very packy, we couldn’t build a snowman. My daughters were a little disappointed. I thought, what if I could make them a snowman that would last … since the snow doesn’t last very long in the Pacific Northwest and neither do the snowmen. So, I created these rings for my daughters so Frosty could last just a little bit longer for them. 🙂
Here’ What You Need:
- Adjustable Ring With Glue On Pad (You can get them here)
- Black Sharpie Marker
- Orange Sharpie Marker
- White Nail Polish
- Clear Coat – optional
Step 1: Apply one coat of white nail polish to the top of the ring and let this dry. Apply a second coat.
Step 2: Take a black Sharpie marker and apply two dots for the eyes and four dots for the mouth. Take your orange Sharpie marker and make the nose. Let the marker dry and cover with clear coat if you like.
They’re simple to make, so I went ahead and made the entire package of 12. I decided that not only did I have enough for my girls, but we had enough to give all of the girls in Lily’s Kindergarten class, a ring for the holidays. I absolutely loved how these turned out.
But, even more than that… I loved that my daughters loved them.
I had to include this picture too because my youngest daughter Lily, was just so excited when I had her try them on. She just couldn’t contain herself.
So, if you’re looking for a fun project to make with or for your kids, this is one they’re sure to love. Besides making these for your kids classmates, they would also make great stocking stuffers.
