DIY Popcorn Snowman Jar Tutorial
I found everything I needed for this holiday craft, except the glue gun and glue sticks, at my local Dollar Tree. But you can also find most of it on Amazon. The hat is simply a Christmas tree ornament they had there.
Supplies Needed for Snowman Popcorn Jar
- small jar – Dollar Tree
- hat – Dollar Tree
- orange foam – for the nose
- small black buttons – for the eyes and mouth
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
Instructions on Making Snowman Popcorn Jar
The first thing you want to make is the ‘carrot’ nose. Unfortunately I completely forgot to take a picture of this step. I’ll try my best to explain it in words along with a cute little diagram I made. 🙂
Begin by cutting a small triangle shape from the sheet of orange foam. I cut mine similar to an Isosceles triangle (one short side and two longer sides) like in the image below.
Next, roll the triangle up to form a carrot shape. Start from one of the long sides and roll it up towards the other long side. Use a dot of hot glue to keep it from coming unrolled. If the nose is too long, simply trim some off from the flat end, then place it off to the side to dry.
Using the hot glue, attach the eyes and the nose to the jar.
Next, glue the buttons on the jar in the shape of a smiling mouth.
Next, fill the jar with popcorn…
…and place the hat over the opening on top.
And that’s it – you are finished! Isn’t he cute?!
