Homemade Christmas Ornaments: Lighted Snowman

Submitted by Mary LaPalm

Lighted snowman

Sit this cute snowman on a branch tucked in your Christmas tree, as it is too heavy to hang off the branch. All this was made for around $5.00.


One small jar (I used a clean jelly jar)
One adult sock
Small piece of ribbon
10 count clear LED lights
White spray paint
Acrylic paints in black, white, pink, red and orange
Clear sealer (optional)


Spray paint the entire jar, let dry.
Paint a smiley face on jar with the acrylic paints.
Put the lights in the jar.
Put the sock over the mouth of the bottle.
Tie the ribbon in a knot around the end of the sock (so it looks like a tassel hat).
I used spray polyurethane to seal the paint on the jar, 3 coats.
