Make a melted snowman ornament (via

This Christmas ornament literally made me laugh out loud when I first saw the photo.  It’s the remnants of a melted snowman!  Adorable, right?  Maggie from Eyeballs By Day, Crafts By Night made them using mainly items that you probably have in your pantry.  Salt and pepper have never, ever looked this cute before.  Her version of this ornament suits an aesthetic that prefers things simple; for different looks she has some fun suggestions for other things you could add to the bulb as well.  [how to make a melted snowman Christmas ornament]
