Snowman Mason Jar

I am in love with Christmas themed arts and crafts. Lately I have been creating and gifting cute homemade seasonal mason jars to the parents of my daycare kids. I love adding a special touch to each gift that I create so that it will touch their hearts and become a forever keepsake. For this particular gift, I was making it for the parents of a 4 month old baby girl and since it was her first Christmas, I really wanted to make it special. I decided to create a Snowman Mason Jar that will be a forever keepsake.

For the DIY Snowman Mason Jar, you need a few simple supplies: mason jar, paintbrush, googly eyes, pom poms, paint pens, multi surface paint, and Mod Podge (optional).

The first step to create this adorable Snowman Mason Jar, is to paint the baby’s foot white. You will then turn the mason jar upside down and carefully press the child’s foot onto the jar. Make sure to work fast but be careful because the painted foot can get slippery.

This is a simple project that allows you to get creative. Feel free to use different colors for the scarf and ear muffs. After you create your snowman, let it dry. You can then create snowflakes all around the mason jar or any other designs. Underneath the snowman, I put the current year, to make the keepsake more special.
