How to make an easy Snowman Wall Decoration with Christmas Ornaments
Being in South Texas means a white Christmas is only something we dream about but that never stops us from reminding ourselves that we can have our own snowmen.
Sure, they may not be made of snow but we can be creative! (Who remembers our DIY Christmas Snowman Fridge?)
109 Plastic/Shatterproof Silver Christmas Ornaments (approximately 1.5″ in width)
1 orange C9 light bulb cover (from a LED set) or 1 orange C9 light bulb
1, 2 pack of Krazy Glue All Purpose Precision Tip One Drop Application in a Stay Fresh Container
2 containers of Krazy Glue All Purpose No Run Gel Precision Tip
1 small/children’s winter hat
1 piece of fleece, cut to 3.5″ x 36″
Gold Floral Balls
Plastic Trash Bag
Begin at the top of your snowman’s head. Lay out five rows of bulbs in this order 2, 3, 4, 3, 2. Carefully make sure all the bulbs touch. This is important. Use Krazy Glue All Purpose Precision Tip One Drop Application to drip one glue drop at the contact point where the two bulbs meet. Let the bulbs set for a few minutes.
Continue to add bulbs for the body, 8 rows of bulbs with 5, 6, 7, 7, 7, 6, 5, 4 bulbs in each row respectively. Make sure the bulbs touch and butt them up to the bulbs of the head. Continue to use the glue to add a drip at the contact point of each bulb.
Wait 2-3 minutes to ensure it has set well. (Note: Krazy Glue can hold a strong bond in 20-30 seconds but to be doubly careful, wait a little longer.)
Begin to add the second layer of bulbs on top of the first. Remove all the strings and the plastic ends from the bulbs. It’s easiest if you just leave the string on the bulb and use it to pull away from the bulb. It pops right off.
Working with one row and one bulb at a time, place the bulb on the first row and add a dab of Krazy Glue All Purpose No Run Gel Precision Tip Glue to the contact points (bottom of the second row of bulbs) of the bulbs. Continue, one bulb at a time, one row at a time until your snowman is complete.
Once you’ve glued the bulbs on the bottom, look at the top and add a drop of Krazy Glue All Purpose Precision Tip One Drop Application in a Stay Fresh Container glue where the bulbs touch within the 2nd row.
Allow it to set again.
Wrap the scarf around the snowman’s neck.
Add a small bread tie hook or wire to the back of one of the bulbs to hang the snowman. Affix with Krazy Glue All Purpose Precision Tip One Drop Application in a Stay Fresh Container.
Now wasn’t that easy?
