Glue Snowman Ornament


Check out our cool Glue Snowman, an idea I found from Kaboose.

Supplies:  Glue, Wax paper, and snowman decors.


With glue, draw out a snowman on wax paper.


Then fill in the snowman evenly with a thick layer of glue.  Butterfly and I used our fingers to spread it into the circles.


Then Butterfly added the snowman details and a pipe cleaner to hang.


I let this dry overnight as it took some time, then I peeled it off the wax paper carefully.  Dried up glue like this feels like soft flexible plastic.


Hang in a window and the light will shine through!

  13. Did this today. Its not looking so good. The wax paper is all wet and it has stuck to the surface we had it on to dry. Pretty disappointed kids. I think maybe I will try with freezer paper. When you say wax paper you mean the waxy kind right? Not parchment or baking paper which also didn't work. Wondering where we went wrong?

    1. Yes wax paper. It works pretty simple and I've had a lot of other parents and bloggers make this over the last couple of years. Maybe it's the type of glue you are using? You can always cut around the glue (leaving the wax paper on the back) so your children won't be disappointed and the work is still kept. But try buying a new bottle of simple Elmer's kids craft glue, and wait until it's completely dry then peel it off.
