Melted Snowman Christmas Ornament

My office decided to do an ornament exchange for our Christmas party this year. Nothing fancy, just a fun little game of Dirty Santa. The ornaments were to be no more than $5, either homemade or store-bought. I decided to make this cute little melted snowman ornament that I saw on Pinterest. Here’s the link to the original post.

This is a very self-explanatory post, but I’ll go ahead and explain anyway! You’ll need a glass ornament, black peppercorn, salt, glue, and a small piece of orange paper.

I like to challenge myself to use materials I already have on hand for my projects if possible. Yes, that’s a recycled gift bag from my birthday last year. I cut an orange circle out and rolled it up with hot glue to make my cone. It worked just fine!

Just pour the salt first, then the peppercorn and the cone into the glass ornament so they don’t get buried by all the salt.

I was worried no one would get my weird sense of humor, but they all thought it was a cute idea. The CEO actually ended up with it and said it was his favorite! Yay, melted snowman!

I ended up having all my materials on hand already, so there was no cost this time for me. The glass ornaments were originally $5.99 for a 4 pack at Hobby Lobby last year, but I used a 40% off coupon. So I spent about 60 cents per ornament. My orange cone was free, and the salt and peppercorn cost is so minuscule that it’s not worth calculating. Definitely an inexpensive ornament project!

I thought it was so cute though, I’ll probably end up making one for us to keep on our own tree!
