Making stuff together is an awesome way to save the memories of a Holiday season without spending much money. Plus, this ornament is super easy to make!

They can be used to hang around the house or you can use them as Christmas ornaments and hang them on the Christmas tree.

These little snow men are affordable and definitely worth making!

Supplies needed:

  • Bottle Caps – We have these on hand, but you can buy them cheap at Hobby lobby if you need to.
  • White paint – You will only need this if you are using used bottle caps. New ones from the craft store are normally white.
  • Felt – We already had this laying around. However, you can get a small piece inexpensively at your local craft store.
  • Colored Sharpies – We have these too but check your Walmart.
  • Hot Glue Gun – Be sure to supervise and help the kiddos so they don’t burn themselves on the hot glue.

How to Make a Bottle cap Snowman Ornament:

Step 1 – First spray paint your bottle caps white. I would make sure to do this ahead of time, because kids will HATE waiting for them to dry.

Felt for scarves and ribbon.

Step 2 – Next, you just need to take your bottle caps and put your face and buttons on! You can choose to add your name and year if you would like.

I think it adds to the memory of making them! Let the kids do this.

It will be fun to see what they come up with. Their creativity can really shine.

Step 3 – Cut your felt into thin strips for your scarf.

Step 4 – Then take a red (or another holiday color) piece of ribbon and glue the top into a loop! Glue your bottle caps onto the ribbon.

You can choose to leave  a gap in between the caps if you prefer. I would highly recommend leaving a bigger gap in between the first two to leave room for the scarf.

Step 5 – Finally, add the scarf and glue it in the middle to make it look as if it is wrapped around the snowman’s neck.

Variations

  • Only use one bottle cap and draw emoji faces. They would be cute painted yellow.
  • Try different colors ribbon and scarves. These can be made to match any theme or décor. This is a great time to utilize scrap material since so little is needed.

Homemade ornaments tips

  • Allow the bottle caps to dry completely before drawing the faces.
  • We recommend painting the caps in advance so children don’t have to wait to make the ornaments.
  • Leave a gap between the first two so you will have room for the scarf. It will make it much easier to make the ornaments.
