  • FolkArt ® Extreme Glitter™ - Hologram, 5 oz.
  • FolkArt ® Texture Paint - White, 4 oz.
  • FolkArt ® Acrylic Colors - Licorice, 2 oz.
  • Small clay pot
  • Small styrofoam ball
  • Red ric rac trim (6 inches)
  • Red felt
  • Two small wood candle cups (for feet in red)
  • Embroidery floss
  • Long needle
  • Hot glue


  1. Paint the clay pot and Styrofoam ball with Texture Paint. Allow to dry.
  2. Paint the clay pot and Styrofoam ball with Hologram Extreme Glitter. Allow to dry.
  3. Paint candle cups with Licorice.
  4. Paint stripes around the rim of the clay pot with Licorice.
  5. Paint the eyes, mouth, and buttons on the snowman with Licorice.
  6. Paint the nose on the snowman with Pumpkin.
  7. Use the Black Extreme Glitter to paint over everything painted Licorice. Allow to dry.
  8. Glue the Styrofoam ball to the bottom of the clay pot.
  9. Glue each end of the ric rac into each candle cup.
  10. Use felt and cut a small piece to make a scarf. Tie around snowman’s neck.
  11. Use remaining felt to make a hat. Cut a rectangle long enough to go around the top portion of Styrofoam ball and overlap slightly. Make the rim of the hat by turning edge on long end and glue in place. Wrap around and secure with glue. Gather and tie the top part, then cut to make a tassel.
  12. Thread the needle with red embroidery floss and go through the center of the hat, through the Styrofoam ball, and into the hole in the bottom of the clay pot, through the center of the ric rac (Do not pull the embroidery floss completely through). Reverse the order and go up through the middle of the hat and make a loop, then knot for hanging. Use hot glue to better secure the red ric rac into the center of the clay pot.
