There's this talented woman in the area that makes her children a unique ornament every year. She does this so when they are grown and leave the house, they will have a good size collection of Christmas tree ornaments to take with them. Lucky for us, she shared her talent with others and now we have our very own ornaments for our tree. We had so much fun making them we decided to make some more to give as teachers gifts. Here's a quick recap of how we made our s'more tree ornaments in case you want one, too.
S'more Snowman Christmas Tree Ornament Tutorial
Polymer clay (white, brown, orange, and black)
Wire and wire cutters
Butter knife or clay tools
1. First, make two "marshmallows" by rolling clay in balls and then flattening out the top and bottom. You may want to roll the sides on a flat surface to straighten them out a bit.
2. Next, whip up a cute carrot nose.
3. Now, work on the "coal" eyes and mouth. A good way to ensure that your pieces are all uniform is to roll it out into a "snake" and then cut them. Shape them after you cut them off and they should all be pretty close in size.
4. Using your wire cutters, cut three pieces of wire per s'more snowman. One will be bent and used as the ribbon holder. The next two will be folded in half and twisted. These are the arms.
