This couldn't get any easier if it tried. There is nothing to it. Hardly any supplies is needed. I all ready have the ornaments, paint and marker. I love snowmen. I made a hot glue melted one that I got the pattern at this site. Every one wanted one. Thanks for another great idea.

This is really cute. The heirloom quality of this ornament is extra special. I love that the little ones can make snowman on an ornament with their growing fingers. Each ornament will be unique. How wonderful to have an ornament for each child over the years. They would make great gifts for great grandparents who don't really need a lot of things.

I'm looking for a cute way to make ornaments with my niece this season. I bet she would LOVE these.
