While your mason jar lid is drying cut out the tiny mittens from felt. I free handed this step and they were actually pretty easy to make. So that they would match I used the first one I cut out as my template to cut out the second one.

I know it’s hard to tell in the picture but I used a black paint marker, or paint pen, to draw on the eyes and the mouth. I LOVE these paint pens and I actually use them more than I thought I would for crafts like on this DIY PERSONALIZED MASON JAR LID. They come in hand for all kinds of projects. If you want to add little accent dots on the eyes with white paint be sure to do so when the black paint is all the way dry. I made the mistake and rushed that step and you can totally see the ugly error.

I painted on my snowman’s nose but if I had an orange paint pen I would have use that instead to create the nose. If you use paint it takes VERY LITTLE .You can vaguely see the little orange dot on the paper towel, that’s what I used to dip my paint brush in to paint the nose. And I didn’t even use very much of it.

Then glue down the earmuffs. You want to glue the pipe cleaner to the mason jar lid first then glue the mini pompoms down on each end of the pipe cleaner. {btw my 10 year old daughter totally had to tell me I’ve been spelling pompoms wrong lol! I was spelling them as 2 words which is clearly wrong. Hey, I’m a really great crafter lol spelling isn’t really my strong suit}.

Next, glue on your snowman’s gloves. I faced the gloves so that the thumbs were facing in which if you do that to yourself is wrong but trust me they actually look better facing the wrong direction

Last, loop a piece of ribbon and glue it to the back of your snowman mason jar lid. For extra support I recommend gluing a piece of felt over it. I cut mine in the shape of a heart so it looked pretty instead of just a circle or a misshaped cut piece of felt. You can also write on the back of the ornament who made it and what year with your paint pen.
