Yes, you read that right. It is not, in fact, a typo or a misleading headline, #fakenews, or anything of the sort. This is, no lie, one of the cutest little snowmen made of honey, ever, and that is coming from someone who is not exactly the most crafty type . So, coming from that perspective, let me begin by telling you that this little project meets my core crafting requirements.
- It is easy, quick, cost effective and not messy.
- It turns into a super fun gift that will never fail to make the receiver smile!
Who doesn't love a fun, EASY activity that ends up being a super cute and useful gift? Total win, am I right?
So, on to the important parts... How do we make these things and where do we find this magical honey, right?
The first step is the base, which is our honey - Don Victor Honey with Comb in a 16oz glass globe jar.
The honey itself varies slightly from jar to jar, but is typically a beautiful amber color with a giant piece of honeycomb that you can see clearly through the globe, making it a beautiful presentation all on its own.
You can purchase the honey at Walmart stores nationwide on the Hispanic aisle. It is also carried by Kroger in Southern California, as well as many other retailers and local Hispanic bodegas nationwide, or, it is readily available online. Average price is between
- Giant Cotton balls, Play Snowballs or Large White PomPoms
- Black buttons
- Small plastic snowflakes (found in same location as buttons)
- Glue Dots or Hot Glue
- Red Felt
- Black paper hats, orange noses and black eyes
1. Place a glue dot or a dab of hot glue on the backside of the buttons and stick them onto the honey jar.
2. Using the glue dots or hot glue, stick the large white ball on top of the honey jar to create the snowman's head.
3. Using the glue dots or hot glue, stick a snowflake onto the black hat.
4. Glue the hat on top of the snowman's head using glue dots or hot glue.
5. Cut strips of red felt to create a scarf, then wrap it around the neck of the honey jar. Tie it in a simple knot.
6. Glue eyes and nose on the snowman's head to make a face.
7. Your snowman is now ready to gift and enjoy!
