Glass Gem Snowman Ornament: Day 6

It’s that time of year again where I will share 12 days of decor ideas, favorite recipes (usually sweet), simple traditions and fun things to do.

Day 6:
 Glass Gem Snowman Ornament

I saw this adorable snowman ornament at my local craft store and had to make it.  It was so easy to make that I decided I must share it as part of our 12 Days series.

The Finished Product:

Supplies Needed:
2 sizes of Glass Gems
Small Black Top Hats
Diamond Dust
Thin Ribbon
Black Paint Pen
Glue

To Make:
Using glue (I used hot glue) adhere the smaller of the gem to the top of the larger gem just off centered.  Applying a generous amount of glue allows the glue to squish out from under the small gem giving you adhesive for the diamond dust.  Add a little diamond dust to the seam where the gems meet.  Apply glue to the bottom of the top hat and secure the top hat to the small gem.  I put a thin ribbon of glue around the top hat and added a small amount of diamond dust to that as well.  Next, tie a knot in your ribbon and glue the knot to the top of the top hat and finish with a bit of diamond dust.  The finishing touch is to add the eyes and buttons using the paint pen.  Once the glue dries the ornament is ready.

I found the best way to apply the diamond dust was to dip the ornament into a shallow dish of diamond dust.  It was less mess this way.
