Snowman Ornament

I know some of you know Jessica Jane and her work.  If you aren't familiar with her ornaments, you need to get on it.  I already have a little mini collection :)
Well, the first time I ever made a Snowman Ornament was with her.  She was the one who inspired me with all her craftiness. (So thanks, Jessi)

Here is a little tutorial on how to make this.


Make three balls out of polymer clay (simple enough, right?)

 I made him a top hat, then I used a jewelry eyepin and pushed it through the hat and balls.

 I made a rectangle out of clay and stamped my son's name in it.

I cut three pieces of wire and twirled them together for an arm. Then repeated for his second arm.

I made him a nose and other things out of clay.  I baked him at 275 for about 10 minutes. Removed him and let him cool.  Then painted and bedazzled him up.

Here is the finished product:
