Make a snowman that will last all year long and is super cute with a bit of sparkle, a cute magic hat, and some yummy chocolate candies. This snowman gift jar is the perfect Teacher gift, neighbor gift, or secret santa gift. It's easy and worth every little bit of glitter.
Every year we used to have a fun sledding and hot cocoa party with friends. It was one of the highlights of the winter season. But now that we live in South Carolina, snow is a distant memory. We did get an hour worth of it last year, but our snowmen only measured 4 inches tall.
Any snowman that we see now, are usually craftily made, but will last a lot longer, and are WAY cuter than any snowman I was ever to make.

Today I'm sharing with you a fun snowman that would be perfect as a Teacher gift, a friend gift, or for anyone on your Christmas list.
- Dollar Tree Mason Jar
- White Acrylic Paint
- Extra fine White Glitter
- Round Foam Paint Brush
- Snowman Template
- Sticker Paper or Xyron Sticker Maker
- Black Cardstock
- Glue or glue gun
- 3 inch circle punch
- 4 1/2 inch circle template
- Red Ribbon
Using sticker paper, cut a snowman shape that is 3 inches tall with a small, medium, and larger circle shape. Or cut out from regular paper and run through your Xyron Sticker Maker with a repositional adhesive cartridge. I love my Xyron Sticker Maker and use it for a lot of my crafting. It is definitely one of my favorite crafting tools and I highly recommend getting one.
Place your sticker snowman on the front of your Dollar Tree Mason Jar. I love the Dollar Tree jars because they are the perfect size and have no markings on them, which is perfect for crafting a great gift jar.
Using the white acrylic paint, go in sections and blot the paint onto the jar. As you finish a section, sprinkle the glitter over it and dump the excess so the jar becomes white and sparkly.
Set aside and allow to dry.
Using one piece of black cardstock, cut a 3 x 11 inch strip and a 3 inch black circle.
Score the black strip with a 2 inch bottom strip and a 1 inch top. Fold in and then cut triangles along the 1 inch side along the hole length or paper.
Line the bottom part of your jar lid with glue and work in sections to lay the black paper strip around the edge to form a circle. When you reach the starting point, cut off any extra to complete the circle. Make sure the triangles fold inward.
Using the remainder of the black cardstock, cut out a black circle that is at least four inches in diameter. (I used a large cocoa cup as a template). Lay the 3 inch circle in the center of your large circle and cut out the center.
Cut a slit in the large circle.
Place glue around the edges of the 3 inch circle and lay on top of the triangles in the hat to form the top hat.
Complete the Snowman top hat by adding bits of glue around the bottom edge of the hat and allowing the black cardstock to connect. Fold the brim tight around the hat and glue in the back. Add a small piece of ribbon around the bottom of the hat.
And fill with your favorite candies. It works great if you fill these with Hershey kisses topped with these Snowman kiss labels.
