    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.

      I buy my glue on Amazon, it has free prime shipping:

      You can get the E6000 glue at Walmart, it comes in different colors so make sure you get the clear. I accidentally got black and had to go back to return it! Hope this helps, saves on shipping. Thanks.
