    • Frosty the Snowman Candy Jar Craft

      Create your own Frosty the snowman candy dish as a lovely winter accent for your home, or as a delightful, inexpensive, yet adorable gift idea.
      You'll Need:
      1 Flower Pot
      1 flower pot base
      1 knob (They have these in the craft section of walmart/target) for .59 each
      1 Round vase (bought it at the dollar store)
      Spray Paint (Whatever colors you desire)
      Glue
      Buttons, Ribbon, various colors of paint for eyes, nose

      Spray paint the flower pot whatever color you prefer, here, I painted the pot base white. Flip the base of the flower pot saucer over and spray paint or hand paint that as well. To give the effect of snow, mix 1 tsp of sand per 1 T. of paint. Apply by dabbing it with a paintbrush.

      Let the pot dry (this varies depending on the brand of spray paint used). Ours took 30 minutes to cure. Attach the buttons with a dab of glue/

      While the flower pot is drying, Paint the knob, which will become the candy jar handle, here I painted it white. Attach the knob to the saucer to make the "Top" of the candy jar.

      To give the appearance of "Frosty" the snowman, spray paint the outside of the round vase with "Frost" spray. I found this spray in the paint department at walmart for $2 a can. It's meant to "frost" bathroom windows. Let it dry 2-4 hours before painting the face.

      Using a strong glue, attach the glass jar to the flower pot base. Let it dry completely and set overnight to cure.

        What a CUTE idea!! Love this!! I saw another version of this where they did the same thing, but painted it and used it as a gumball machine. You could leave the gumball machine out all year, but I love the idea of the snowman and mints for the holidays!

        Nice idea for a massive craft marathon and make a bunch of these up for inexpensive gifts. I saw the gumball machine one too - very cute, but this will make a great Christmas gift!

        It's very cute. Exactly what kind of spray paint did you use?

        The cheap stuff from walmart, basic everyday spray paint, any brand will do.

        That is so darn cute! I wish that I had a creative brain!
        I could stay on the computer all day and look up craft ideas. It helps to get those creative juices flowing. Anyone else agree?
        I am definitely going to try this one.

      Yarn Spun Snowman

      If you don't have snow you can still make a really cute snowman out of white yard & a little bit of sugar! Blow up balloons that are round and follow the directions for the sugar spun easter baskets...
