Fleece Hat Snowman Jars – Holiday Ideas for Gifts in a Jar.

These adorable snowman jars are perfect for helping save the environment. You create these with old baby food jars, gloss paints and fleece. These make for great Christmas gifts. Materials:  • Apple Barrel Gloss: pure pink • Apple Barrel Gloss : pumpkin orange • Apple Barrel Gloss: black • Apple Barrel Gloss: white • Fleece • Baby Food Jar • Kid paint brushes • Matching yarn or thread • Glue gun • Sponge Steps:  1. First you need to have a clean jar free of label and glue. I love to use the gloss paints because they can be painted right onto the jar with a sponge. Apply a coat of white all over the jar. You only need to paint up to the tread on the jar lid. Allow jar to dry and apply second coat if needed. 2. Second, use your paint brushes to pain the features. I like to paint the cheeks first with pure pink. (If this pink is too dark for you, add white to it to make it softer.) Then the carrot nose with pumpkin orange. This helps to see where you want to put the eyes and the mouth using the black paint. 3.While the paint is drying...this is the perfect time to pick out the fleece for your snowman’s hat. We use approximately a 5" x 9" piece of fleece. I fold up a brim, about 3/4 of an inch, and start to hot glue this around the jar lid. When you have it completely glued around the rim of the lid, glue the ends together to hold in place. There is no need to glue all the way up the seam...this will close when you take your matching yarn or thread and gather the fleece loosely to form a fun shaped hat. You will tie it about an inch or two above the jar to make it look rounded. 4.Next cut into the top of the fleece to make fringe...make sure not to cut down into your thread. You can now trim the fringe if it is too long. 5. Once, the paint is dry, go ahead and put your cap on your snowman. Don’t forget to put a little surprise inside. (Chocolates and candies are a favorite!) 6. My kids made these for their school teachers last year for Christmas. They were a hit! By: Lori Tabor
