Hello, and welcome to another week of Craft Lightning! All tutorials shared this week will show you how to make handmade projects for the holidays in a flash. To make this canning ring snowman, here are the materials you’ll need:
YOU NEED: Three canning jar rings – different sizes if you’d like, scissors, clear fishing line, Mod Podge or Gel Medium or some kind of white glue like the Aleene’s Tacky Glue I’m using here, epsom salts, ribbon or a scrap of felt or fabric for the scarf
Begin by spreading glue all over the outside edge and front edge of the canning jar rings (you can use a brush but I find it works best to just use my fingers). Coat them with the Epsom salts – I find it works well to dip them right into the salts. Set aside and let these dry.
Tie the three rings together with the fishing line. Tie a piece of ribbon (felt, fabric) around as the scarf. You can add a dab of glue to hold it in place if needed but I haven’t found that was necessary. Tie on another piece of fishing line to serve as a hanger for this decoration.
I’m hanging some of these in my kitchen windows for the holidays. It’s so pretty the way it sparkles and glistens in the light. Be sure to click on the button below to check out the rest of the Craft Lightning projects each day this week!
