I am super excited to share this simple and easy craft project on how to make a glass bowl snowman.

I love him!  I love when you stumble upon an idea and it turns out so stickin cute!   This year I have been so tired of my Christmas decorations, I been wanting change some decorations but have not had much time to make those changes for this year.  Here are the bowls I used for my table center piece last year.

Christmas Table Decoration using glass bowls

 

I like how they looked, but I have used this for the last 2 years, just in different locations of the house.  So as I was bringing up the bowls this year, I stacked them on each other to carry them up from the basement and guess what.  Ding Ding Ding ~ they looked like a snowman!  I was originally going to fill the bowls with the same ornaments and just stack them, but I am getting tired of the red, green and gold colors.  Plan B!

I didn’t want to paint them, as I use these bowls for many different decorating things. I will use my spray foam!   The spray foam will clean up after the season.  The best part of this decoration was I already had the items on had and it was the simplest thing to complete.

I sprayed the inside of the bowls, so I could move the snowman if needed.  Hot glued on some buttons, tied a ribbon around the top bowls and placed on the hat.

How Simple and cute is he?  Bonus ~ I decided to buy a battery operated light to make him light up at night.

I love him!  What do you think, should we give him a name?

  1. DeDe,
    I love this idea of the snowman and lighting up is definitely a plus. I am a Girl like yourself who leaves out snowman to keep my house from feeling naked after the holidays. I found your snowman today because I also found a blog I will now be following. Happy Holidays

      Karen, I know! I hate taking down the Christmas decor because the house looks so empty! Since I live in Ohio where it stays cold until March and April, I like to keep winter decorations up and then change to Spring in April! I am so glad you found my blog and will be stoppin by yours!

    Very inventive and original. Nice crafting.

  14. Debbie says:

    I love snowmen and yours is adorable. 2 questions. did you hot glue the bowls together and what type of battery operated light? I’m only familiar with battery operated window candles. Thank you for sharing and, Merrrrrry Christmas!

    • Designed Decor says:

      Debbie, I did not glue them together, they sit nicely inside the other so no glue necessary. I purchased a 20 bulb light strand from my local craft store, Pat Catans. I am sure you can buy them from JoAnns or Michaels. They run on 3 double AA batteries. If you make one, make sure to keep the bowls separated until the spray snow is dry, once dry then you can stack them. Have a Merry Christmas!

  • Ready for outdoor inspiration? Follow these tips from designer @justinablakeney and @worldmarket - an easy space refresh: 1. Mix and match patterns by picking a dominant color and one or two accent colors. The colors tie the patterns together and make the space look cohesive. 2. Mix graphic pillows (like the dragonfly) with patterns (like the botanical prints). 3. Toss in some solids to balance everything out. #WorldMarketLove4Outdoors Plus, @WorldMarket is giving away a $100 World Market gift card when you regram this video using #WorldMarketLove4Outdoors and #WMEntry in the description to be eligible to win.
