Learn how to create a recycled water bottle Christmas craft.  It's a snowman craft tutorial.  It's a great excuse to stay hydrated!

Here is a quick tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made them.:

Water bottles:
Multi surface paint (black, white and orange):
Chunky glitter:
Fine glitter:
Hot glue:
Battery operated votives:


1.  I began by removing the wrappers and washing out the bottles.

2.  I cut the bottoms off of the bottles.

3.  I painted the bottles with a multi-surface paint, but made sure not to make it opaque.  Light needs to make it through.

4.  I painted the bead head the same color.

5.  Once dried, I glued the ball onto the top of the bottle.  I painted clear drying glue onto the head and body.

6.  I sprinkled the glitter onto the head and body.  

7.  I took foil and molded a carrot nose and charcoal pieces for the features.

8.  I painted the pieces orange and black.

 9.  I glued on the pieces.

10.  I cut a circle out of black felt and cut a circle in the middle.

11.  I also cut a strip and glued the hat together.

12.  I cut a strip out of red.

13.  I fringed the ends.

14.  I glued the scarf on and crossed it in the front.

15.  I repeated it with the green felt and glued on beads for additional decoration.

16.  I added glue and glitter on the edge of the hat, scarf, etc., for an icy look.

Once dry, they are ready to go!

Pop a battery operated votive under them, to light them up.
