Christmas Every Monday

Welcome to Christmas Every Monday.  Each Monday in October, I will have a few fun and simple projects for you to start working on ahead of the holidays.

Today's theme is Snowmen!

Let's get started!

List of supplies for all items today.  If you gather all of these items, you can whip out all of these in an afternoon.

These items were all from Dollar Tree:

Set of Salt & Pepper Shakers (clear glass)
Kosher Salt
Red Candle
Clear Plastic Ornaments 2/$1.00
Wine Glass

From my stash and/or Michaels:

5 1/2" tall flowerpot
4 1/2" flowerpot saucer
Orange felt
Orange scrapbook paper
Black spray paint
White spray paint
Red spray paint and/or red acrylic
Holly spray
Holly garland
Small Christmas ribbon

Here we go ------

Flowerpot Candle Holder

Take a 5 1/2" flowerpot and spray it white.  Add red to the rim - either spray paint and/or acrylic.  If you use spray paint, mask off the white part and spray.

The cheeks are done with actual blush from my make up box.  Rub it on with your fingers and then soften it out around the edges.  Add the eyes and mouth with black acrylic paint. I used a small heart painted orange for the nose, however, you could use orange felt.  I dip a Qtip in the paint.  It makes really nice big dots.

Turn the flowerpot saucer upside down and spray paint in black.

Glue the black saucer to the top of your painted flowerpot.  Add candle.

Add a spray of holly with berries.

Project #1 is done.

I highly recommend using this spray paint.  It is a primer and will cover everything we are working on.

Wine Glass Candle Holder

 Spray a wine glass with the white spray paint.

Paint the same face as the first project.  Add an orange felt nose and some kind of Christmas greenery around the candle.

Project #2 done!!

 The Melting Snowman Ornament

This is super simple!!

Take a clear plastic ornament and add Kosher salt to it, then whole peppercorns and a tiny orange nose made out of a rolled up piece of scrapbook paper. 

Project #3 - Done!!

Snowmen Salt & Pepper Shakers 

These are spray painted white, face painted as previous projects, nose cute out of orange felt and any kind of Christmas ribbon wrapped and tied around neck.

Project #4 - done!!

These projects will all be easy and very affordable to make for teachers, neighbors, etc.

Hope you enjoy!



  1. What a great idea!!!!! I'm checking this out weekly for sure! Love these cute and easy snowman projects Judy!

      Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
