MASON JAR SNOWMEN KEY CHAINS




I absolutely love any type of mason jar crafts and snowmen.  
And when a time comes to join mason jars and snowmen together, I give it a try.  
So here's the latest idea I've had.

MASON JAR SNOWMEN KEY CHAINS

I have a ton of these wooden mason jars made up because I make them into key chains. Kinda as my business cards, to give out with purchases of my stained mason jars

But this morning I had the idea to make some into snowmen key chains.

You could also do this with the flat, wooden, mason jar gift tags found at Walmart.

In this photo, I'd already drilled a hole and screwed my eye hooks down into the top.
The plain eye hooks come in a pack of 20 for .59 cents at our local Ollies.

And now for the first step to painting the snowmen faces.
I used these colors for snowmen:

When it comes to painting snowmen faces, don't over think it.  Just do each eye, nose, mouth all at once and it will come together. 
Now, just take some orange paint and stick on a pointy nose.

Now, take the end of the brush, the pointy tip and dot on some eyes.

Now add some mouths with the same end of the brush.

See, step by step they are beginning to look like snowmen and it isn't as hard as you think.


And little lines for eyebrows.




And now time to add some rosey cheeks and a bit of mixed orange and white to add snow to the nose.




And now it's time to attach the ring holder. I always save old keychains for this.  This time I had a bunch of dolphins that I had saved back from a sale I caught at our Preston Court Days.
I got an entire bag of 50 +/- for $2.00 !!

I used pliers to pry off the ring.


And then just stick it right back on my Mason Jar Snowmen Key Chains.


I think they are really turning out cute.
What about you?




Oh, and if you're wondering how big these are, I forgot to say.

Just the right size for a key chain and I also have a little bit smaller size on hand too.




And to seal them, I hung them up outside, by the hangers with clothespins and gave them a quick spray of clear coat.

And that's it. Now we have Mason Jar Snowmen Key Chains. 
A combination of the two things I love to craft with!
And remember, you can get those flat, wooden mason jar tags from Walmart to do about the same craft!
