Snowman Jar

I decided not to bake homemade items this year because of flu fears. I chose wrapped candy instead, collecting hard candies on sale after Halloween and purchasing a couple of large bags chocolates at Sam's, but I wanted to add a special touch. So I painted the tops of the jars like Snowmen faces. This works especially well with canning jars. Everyone smiled when they saw these smiling frozen men! Jar lids decorated to look like snowmen.


Approximate Time: 15-20 minutes



  • empty jars and cans with wide mouths
  • paints
  • ribbons, trims


  1. Brush sealer on the tops of the lids. Dry.
  2. Basecoat twice with white. Dry.

  3. Add faces as shown and dry.

  4. Load flat brush with half white and half sky blue. Paint around the edge of the lid.

  5. Fill jars as desired, tie on ribbon to resemble scarf or just a bow, if desired.

That is a good idea. I have been looking for a way to "fire" the garbage man this will help.
