During last year’s Christmas season I did a couple of curtain ring projects.
Like this shower curtain ring Christmas tree here, and these curtain ring wreath ornaments here.
After these projects I still had a some curtain rings left over so I decided to make a snowman tree ornament.
I started with a shower curtain ring and a smaller regular curtain ring.
Before starting I made sure to close the shower curtain ring.
I spray painted the rings with Krylon Dual white.
Then I went through my thrifted Christmas craft stash and found these white/gold glittery pipe cleaners. I wrapped them around each ring until they were completely covered, securing the ends with a little glue.
Then I glued the rings together using my glue gun.
To decorate my snowman I poked a hole into a decorative present with scissors and glued it onto the hanger of the curtain ring, which I made sure was on the side when I glued the rings together.
Then I cut some small ribbon to look like a scarf and added a few other decorations to dress it up.
And here’s my snowman hanging on the tree.
I’m always finding curtain rings of all sorts at the thrift stores for $1 or under for a set… making this a very inexpensive project, and you could use yarn, rope, cording, ribbon… whatever you have on hand really.
This could be a quick and easy project to do with the kids, with supervision with the hot glue gun of course. Once the curtain rings were painted it took about 10 minutes to make the snowman.
Thanks so much for reading, and have a fabulously festive day! 🙂
