What you will Need: How to make Dollar tree Salt Shaker Snowmen
- A set of Dollar Tree Salt and Pepper shakers
- 1 Table tennis ball
- A piece of ribbon
- 1 white tinsel garland or feather boa
- Black paint
- White paint
- Orange paint
- White glitter
- 3 small buttons (Optional)
Step 1: Paint your Table Tennis Ball
I realize the table tennis ball is white already but the surface is slick and plastic and not the finish I wanted so I decided to paint it white. I got the texture I wanted and it made it easier to paint on. Since the bottom was going to be covered and I didn’t have any skewers, I hot glued my balls to some paper and sprayed them white then pulled them off the paper. Not the neatest way to do it but it worked.
Step 2: Fill the Shaker
Take the top off the shaker and fill the shaker 1/3 full of white glitter.
Step 3: Glue on the Table Tennis Ball
Using either hot glue or e6000 glue the table tennis ball to the top of the shaker.
Step 4: Paint the Face and Add the Buttons
Using the black paint, paint on the eyes, the mouth and the buttons using small dots. With the orange paint paint a small sideways triangle to act as the carrot nose. Let dry. You could also use small buttons that you could hot glue onto the snowman.
Step 5: Add the Ribbon or garland
For the snowman I added a a piece of ribbon to act as a scarf around the threads of the shaker. For the snow woman I added the garland instead. I removed the gnomes from the garland. Place the silver shaker top at a jaunty angle on the ball to act the snowman’s hat and glue. Once the top was added my Dollar Tree salt shaker snowmen were complete.
