It’s time for November’s DIY Suprise Craft Box! Thank you again so much for being so patient with me. Unfortunately, time has not made it any easier to deal with my dad’s passing and I’m still struggling. Grief is something I have dealt with before but not to this magnitude. It’s been hard to even do the things that come so easily to you every day. My dad has left such a huge hole and I’m very lost without him, but I’m doing the best I can and thank you so very much for being so lovely and kind.
But without further or due let’s get onto creating some fun Ornaments for you to decorate with! Be sure to download your instructions >>HERE<<
Extra Supplies Needed:
- Glue gun

Snoman Ornament Tutorial
Take a piece of jute approximately 15cm long and fold it in half to create a loop.
Thread the black bead, black disc and snowman through and tie off at the top to prevent the beads from slipping up. Leave the two longer pieces hanging from the bottom. They will act as the tie to old the tassel in place.
Take a long piece of jute and wrap it around your palm about 16 to 20 times. Slide the loops off pinching, the top of the tassel. Use some more jute and wrap around the top to create the top of the tassel and glue it into place. Firmly tie the tassel onto the base of the snowman beads using the two loose jute strands. Glue some greenery and berries or a red button on the hat and you’re all done!
THINGS TO REMEMBER:
- Make sure to give your wood a really good sand to remove any loose wood and give a nice smooth finish.
