How to make a wooden snowman ornament:

 

Snowman ornament craft

 

Slide 3 wooden beads over the skewer, make sure you leave plenty of space in between so that you can paint all sides of the bead.  Give each bead a nice light coat of white paint and then allow them to dry.  Apply a second coat of paint and allow it to dry completely.

Slide your beads onto the String/twine.   Use the backend of a very small paintbrush to add black dots for the ice mouth and buttons.

Use the black backend of a small paintbrush again or you can also use the tip of the skewer to draw out a long orange carrot nose. Let your details dry well.  Optional: paint stick arms on each side of the buttons with light brown paint. 

 

 

Wrap a small piece of ribbon around the neck like a scarf and secure it into the place where you want it with a dab of glue. Tie several knots at the end of the string below your snowman so that it is larger than the hole on your beads and your snowman will not slip off the end of the string.   At the other end tie a loop with the string for hanging. 

Your wooden snowman ornament is now done and ready to enjoy.
