Ornament Countdown – Day 10

The journey continues on revealing an ornament from my collection (see related post).

Day 10: 2007 Snowman Bell


  • Large craft bell (I found rusty red bells)
  • Paints: white, orange, black, yellow, green
  • Paint brushes of varying sizes
  • Sponges
  • Twine

Instructions: Start with the white paint on a brush and dab out some of the paint on a paper towel. Dab on the paint using soft textured actions to keep the snowman looking like he has rough edges. You may also use a sponge for this action. Using a brush, paint on the snowman’s hat of any color you want, adding fringe details and black edging. Paint the snowman’s eyes and mouth with black, his carrot nose with orange. For extra texture and detail, I used the sponge and added extra paint texture around the bell. Add a piece of twine for the hanger.
