How to make a snowman sweet jar

Start by making a large pom pom roughly the same size as the lid of your jar. If you haven’t made a pom pom before you can find an easy guide to making one with and without a pom pom maker here.

Next we need to make the snowman’s cozy earmuffs. To do this take a small length of pipecleaner and glue a pom pom on both ends. Add any other optional decorations such as bows and the glue the ear muffs into place on the pom pom snowman.

Glue on two Googly eyes and a pom pom nose

Next cut out a long strip of coloured felt to make the scarf. Make several snips in each end and then use your glue gun to attach the scarf onto the jar lid as above.

Glue the pom pom head onto the scarf and jar lid and once dry your snowman sweet jars are finished! These are great as homemade christmas decor or for gifting to loved ones!
