Warm And Fuzzy Snow Girl Ornament

Ornament measures 3” long from the angel’s crown to the feather bottom.
 

A fur hood and wool scarf make this snow girl ornament a treasure. Start with any size burned out light bulb, add a face with markers, a little doll hair, a piece of craft boa, and wired, woven ribbon for the scarf. This is the kind of gift you can create at the last minute because it comes together so quickly.

Directions

step 1 - To keep the bulb from rolling around, cradle it in soft thick fabric, like fleece. Use a thin, black Sharpie to draw the eyes.  Start with the outline of the eyes, then fill in with thicker marker. Don’t worry about making mistakes. Any errors can be wiped away with a Q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol.
