Do you have old CDs hanging around that you’ve never taken the time to throw away?
Instead of tossing them out, use them to make these fun and inexpensive CD snowmen Christmas tree ornaments.
These snowmen are super easy to make. The hardest thing (for me) is to have patience for the various coats to dry.
Here’s what you’ll need:
white acrylic paint
orange tissue paper
black construction paper
clear acrylic sealer
Let it dry completely.
Let it dry completely. (If you don’t, you could have problems with gluing on the eyes.)
Glue on the googly eyes.
Cut out 5 small circles for the mouth and glue them on.
Cut an 8 inch square from the tissue paper. (I started out with orange construction paper as you can see in the picture above. But, I didn’t like how it twisted. The construction paper was too stiff. Tissue paper worked much better.)
Twist the tissue paper to make the ‘carrot’ nose. Stuff it through the hole in the center of the CD. Trim some of the excess paper. Then, tape the tissue paper to the back of the CD to hold the nose in place.
Cut a short piece of curling ribbon and tape it on the back. This is the hanger for your ornament.
Ta da! You are finished.
