Glitzy Snowman Ornaments

By: Pamala Cook

Use toilet paper tubes and a burned out light bulb to create cute snowman Christmas ornaments with a touch of glitter. These are a great low-cost Christmas activity to do with the whole family.



  • Burned out lightbulb
  • White paper
  • Decoupage glue
  • Brush
  • Water to rinse brush
  • Glitter and or snow material
  • Trays (or paper plates) and small mouthed glass
  • Orange pipe cleaner
  • Chop stick or pencil
  • Scissors
  • String
  • Tape
  • Felt white & black
  • Toilet paper tube (used)
  • Squiggly eyes
  • Glitter glue pen
  • Glue gun


  1. Tear white paper into small pieces.
  2. Set up water to rinse brush (rinse accordingly).
  3. Wipe bulb off.
  4. Dip brush into glue.
  5. Start painting the bulb with glue. Tip: don’t paint the glue where you need to keep your fingers. I use a small mouthed glass to set the bulb on and do one side at a time.
  6. Add pieces of paper a little at a time gluing them down as you go.
  7. Allow the glued paper side to dry. After it has dried; repeat step 4–7. Once both sides have been covered with paper & have dried.
  8. Check to make sure no spots were missed reapply glue and paper where needed and allow to dry.
  9. Use brush to cover half the bulb with glue
  10. Place over a tray or paper plate and sprinkle glitter on thick.
  11. Sprinkle extra glitter onto the tray.
  12. Then over another tray sprinkle the glitter from the other tray over the bulb again.
  13. Allow to dry.
  14. Repeat steps 10-14 until bulb is fully covered with glitter and dry.
  15. Cut string long enough.
  16. Use tape to tape down string on two sides of the bulb screw in top.
  17. Secure with glue gun, waiting till glue is set.
  18. Glue squiggly eyes in place, allow to set.
  19. Wrap orange pipe cleaner around a chop stick or pencil to desired length for nose, cut tuck in the ends.
  20. Use glue gun to secure nose in place.
  21. TIP: it is easier to work with the bulb when setting on top of a glass or hanging from a banana tree.
  22. TIP: if you get hot glue on your fingers place them in the rinse water.
  23. Cut used toilet paper roll to desired height of hat.
  24. Cut black felt to fit around the tube.
  25. Cut a circle from black felt to fit the top and punch a hole through the center for the hanging string.
  26. Cut a larger circle from black felt for the bottom of the hat.
  27. Cut a white band for the hat from the white felt.
  28. Use glue gun to assembly all parts of hat.
  29. Thread the string through the top of the hat, glue to bulb if desired.
  30. Use glue pen to make dots for the mouth, allow to dry watching for drips.
