This ornament is special because my daughter taught me how to make them, and we can make them together. Not only do they look great on the tree, but they also make great gifts.
All supplies can be easily found at your local craft store.
white or silvery-white glass ornaments
black acrylic paint
orange acrylic paint
2 pom poms
small paint brush
scrap of 1/4" wide satin ribbon
Keep ornaments in their tray, if possible, to make a sturdy placeholder while you work. Using a cotton swab and black paint, paint on simple dot eyes and mouth. Use orange paint to paint on a carrot-shaped nose. Fashion a headband for earmuffs by cutting a strip of black felt that is 4" long and 1/2" wide. Glue in place across top of ornament, just in front of hanger. Glue pom poms at each end of the headband to form earmuffs. You may need to trim one side of each pom pom to "flatten" it a bit to allow for easier application. Cut a piece of 1/4" wide satin ribbon to make a hanger.
