CD Snowman ornaments: another one to add to our collection of easy and adorable snowman crafts for kids.
Don’t throw out your old cds and dvds! Turn them into CD Snowman Christmas ornaments with your kids. This is actually the second time this week that we’ve used a CD to make a Christmas decoration! Last Friday we made these gorgeous, glittered CD ornaments.
And this morning, as I was having my coffee, the idea for these CD Snowman Ornaments came to me.
Don’t they look so sweet?
Today was a P.A. Day so we had some of our hooligan grads with us for the day. They loved this making these snowmen, but it was a great Christmas craft for our toddlers and preschoolers too. The process is simple, but kids will love all the steps involved: painting, glittering and gluing.
This is what we used to make our CD Snowman Ornaments:

How to turn a CD into a Snowman Ornament:
To start, give your CD a coat of white acrylic paint.
When your paint has dried (I always speed that process up with the help of a hair dryer), brush on some white glitter glue. This added a pretty sparkle to our discs.
How to make a 3-D carrot nose:
For your carrot nose, cut a full-size sheet of orange tissue paper in half. Fold this half sheet of tissue paper in half twice (once length wise, and once width-wise, just as you would to fold a face cloth.
Grab and pinch the middle of that piece, and twist. Continue to twist, pinching the end of the “carrot”, until you’re happy with it.
Have your child push that carrot-nose through the hole from the back of the CD. Trim the tissue paper to about a 1/2 inch at the back of the ornament.
Bring your snowman “to life”, using the buttons, beans and craft foam pieces.
Squeeze a hanging thread through the mose hole, and tie with a knot.
Isn’t this a sweet way to up-cycle your old CDs into some sweet Christmas ornaments?
