Snowman Luminaries Craft for Kids


My daughter loves doing crafts (I wonder why?).  Yesterday, she asked me to do a craft. I always hoard…I mean keep extra supplies. I had some baby food jars in the craft closet, so we busted them out and made these adorable snowman luminaries craft.

Time: 30 Minutes


Optional Materials:

  • Felt
  • Ribbon
  • Hole Punch
  • Craft Punches
  • Sticks
  • Industrial Strength Glue

My six year old daughter doesn’t need too much instruction. She is an amazing kid.  I told her to paint the inside of the jars white and left the rest up to her. She made most of her snow woman details out of paper.  She even added little eye lashes. She also added pompoms on her hat and felt for her scarf. 


For mine, I used a hole punch for the eyes, mouth, and buttons.  I made the hat out of felt and the scarf out of ribbon with felt fringe.  To make the hat, cut a rectangle to fit around the cap. Glue the end to the lid with hot glue. Tie a piece of ribbon around the hat to cinch it in the middle. Fringe the top half with scissors. I used sticks for the hands.  Consider using a stronger glue to attach the sticks to the body.  Hot glue will work, but can easily be torn off.


Glue the three jars together. Again, consider using an industrial strength glue.  It will typically take a full 24 hours to dry. Once the paint is dry, place a flame less tea light in each jar.  The lids will be easy to take on and off.


They turned out so cute!
