Snowmen Ornaments Clinton Kelly

Shining Snowmen

Everyone has a soft spot for Frosty and if you don’t, then your heart is clearly made of coal.

You Will Need

  • Precut craft wood circles
  • White glitter craft paint
  • Assorted sequins
  • Orange marker/Sharpie
  • Craft glue
  • Monofilament


  • Paint four circles with glitter paint. Let dry.
  • Glue sequins on one circle to create a face, and on another circle to form buttons or any other embellishments you want.
  • Draw a carrot nose on the face with marker.
  • Attach the two circles with sequins (the face and body) to each other by gluing one string of monofilament on their backs. Start monofilament at the back of the bottom of the body circle to beyond the top of the face circle. Leave a small space between the head and body.
  • Glue one of the unadorned, painted circles to the backs of the embellished circles so the monofilament is sandwiched between.
  • The monofilament sticking out of the top will serve as a hanger. Tie it off to create a loop.

Mustaches are everywhere, even adorning baby pacifiers. Don't be surprised to see Christmas trees across the country sprouting facial hair.

Awesome Ornaments Clinton Kelly

Psychedelic Swirl

I’m a huge fan of color but black and white ornaments are very of the moment. I saw a handblown glass version of this ball for a lot of dough in a ritzy store. My take is a lot less pricey. And it will help you hypnotize your boyfriend into proposing on New Year’s Eve.

You Will Need

  • White ball ornaments
  • Black marker/Sharpie
  • Black craft paint


  • Draw swirl line using marker.
  • Using line as guide, paint on black swirl stripe in desired thickness.
