I get so excited each and every year to sign up to participate! I would like to personally thank the amazing Elf Lisa for hosting such a fun event. This year I am doing something different. I am going to post a different DIY Holiday Christmas bulb using simple craft supplies. I hope that you will come back everyday to see all 12 Ornaments. I have been hard at work in Santa’s Workshop to bring you fun projects each and every day! Before we go any further though I want to make sure that you stopped here after visiting our Guest Elf- Mary be sure to click HERE if you need to start at the beginning be sure to click HERE.

For my 6th ornament I was in to mood for Frosty the Snowman to make an appearance.  This bulb for me is one of my personal favorites.  I have seen several of these cute little guys on Pinterest and wanted to try one of my own.

White Painted Snowman Christmas Ornament DIY.madgegillen

Here are the items you need to make this cute snowman

  • Plastic Christmas Bulb from the dollar store
  • White paint
  • Black Paint
  • Orange Paint
  • Sponge Paint Brush
  • Grey Chevron Ribbon
  • Paper Cup


Here are the steps that I took to create “Frosty”

  • Take the top off of your bulb, pour white paint inside of the bulb. Swirl around the paint so it covers the whole inside of your bulb
  • Tip the bulb upside down on top of a plastic cup, this will allow all of the excess paint to come out of the bulb.  You want to leave your bulb to dry.
  • When your bulb is dry, take the sponge paint brush and use the end to create the dots. Two black eyes, and your mouth.
  • Take your sponge brush and orange paint and make the carrot nose.
  • Set your bulb aside so it will dry
  • Add the top back onto your bulb and tie a piece of grey chevron ribbon to the top of your bulb.

Check it out! You have now created your very own “Frosty the Snowman”!

    That is a really cute and Frosty guy! Thanks for hopping along!

  10. That’s a really cool way to give an old ornament new life. It’s so cute. Thanks so much for sharing.

  11. This one is so Cute and I’m wondering If Its simple enough for my Grand Children to do. Thanks for the Idea!

    • I would say yes, this is a super fun ornament. I would suggest helping them pour the paint inside, but they could for sure swirl the paint around inside of the bulb. They also could use black sharpie and orange sharpie for the eyes, nose, and mouth if that would work easier? Best of Luck! Loves- Madge

  12. Oh, that’s cute.
