These adorable snowmen jars are made from those large pickle jars in the bulk section of grocery stores.
Their heads are light cover globes.
How to Repurpose Pickle Jars into Frosted SnowmenTo get started, thoroughly wash the jar and dry it. Make sure there isn’t any moisture left at all. I run mine through the dishwasher and use the heat cycle to dry. Frost the body and head using a can of frost spray paint.
Spread a string of white Christmas lights or battery operated fairy lights into each jar before attaching the head with hot glue or glass glue, allowing the cord to hang in the back be between the head and the body.
Glue some dark colored buttons on the jars (as pictured), attach a small scarf & Hat (as pictured), paint a “carrot” shaped nose and use a black sharpie to add the eyes and mouth. You can use craft glue or hot glue. I prefer hot glue because it sets faster.Very simple, but so cute! This is a wonderful repurpose idea for pickle jars. You can make lots of different sizes and you can get the globes (the head part) from the dollar store too.
Battery powered fairy lights work really well in these jars to keep from having excess cords hanging around. As you can see, the lighting effect makes a huge difference! Here’s another one that’s super cute!
Snowman Jar Variations
Instead of pickle jars you could also use mason jars, relish jars, pretty much any type of glass jar that you can find. You might have an oddly shaped snowman, but that’s the beauty of crafting!Here’s another pickle jar repurpose winter decoration
