DIY Snowman Mason Jar Craft

 

Materials Needed For Snowman Mason Jar Craft

Mason Jar – I used the large gallon size

White Spray Paint
Craft Paint – White, Orange, Black

Felt – Black or Dark Heather Gray (optional)

Craft Foam (12 x 18) Sheet – Black 

Fleece – Red and Plaid

Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks

Scissors

Paint Brushes

 

Step 1:

Paint your mason jar.  I used the white spray paint and gave it a couple of coats.

Step 2:

Paint his cute face using the black, orange and white craft paints.  I used the raised line under the “Ball” name as a guide for the top of his nose.  It was the perfect angle. 

Paint the black part of the eyes and make sure it has completely dried before you paint the white parts.  I think mine was still a tiny bit wet.  It got a little smeary.

Step 3:

The hat is next.  I cut a piece of the felt to just go around the part of the lid that screws onto the jar and hot glued it to the lid piece.  I didn’t want the metal to show but this is an optional step. Another option would be to spray paint the metal part black.

Then I traced onto the black craft foam a circle the size I wanted for the hat.  The first one was too small so I drew a second larger circle and cut that one out.

Next I cut a long piece foam for the sides of the hat.  I measured how tall I wanted it to be then cut a piece that was longer than what I needed.  I used to top of an empty spray paint can as a base and used the hot glue to adhere it to the lid.  Then I trimmed it to the correct length and secured the end down.  This worked really well.  

You can see the black foam piece behind the spray paint lid below.

To put it all together I glued the round piece of foam to the mason jar lid, then glued the wrapped spray paint lid onto that.  Then one more circle glued at the top finished it up.

To decorate it I cut a piece of red fleece and a couple leaf shapes of the plaid fleece to add around the hat just above the brim then added a little button.  It was super cute.

Step 4:

Now for his cute scarf.  The plaid fleece and the red fleece are from throw blankets I purchased for super cheap.

I am going to use them for some holiday throw pillows too but I cut a little bit of them for this project.  I cut a piece of the green plaid blanket long enough to go around the jar with some extra length for the fringe.  Then I used my scissors and cut up about 2 inches on each end to make the fringe.  I think it added a lot to him!

What do you think?

He looks great as decor but you could also fill him up with some fun things as a gift too.  How about a t-shirt or gloves and a scarf?  He makes great packaging.
