DIY: Snowman Lights

I decided to take some down time the other night and work on some craft projects with my kids (ages 9 & 4). I have a "bottled light" addiction and thought these would make the perfect project for us... I also thought it would be a night little seasonal night light for their rooms!

For each light here is what you will need:

  • 1 Empty (CLEAN) milk or water jug
  • 1 Strand of 20 count white lights (preferably with a white cord)
  • 1 hat (I got mine from dollar tree)
  • Acrylic paint: I used Black, Orange, and Pink
  • At least one paint brush
  • Spray clear coach (to seal the acrylic)


Ready to get started?

  1. Take your clean milk jug and cut a small slit in the back of it. 
  2. Get out your acrylic paint and paint your face (you can google ideas... I went for a "less is more" simple look, but feel free to get CREATIVE!!)
  3. After the acrylic dries (it shouldn't take too long) spray the face with clear coat
  4. Once it is completely dry, stuff the lights through the slit you cut in step one and then place the hat on the top.

*You can always run the lights though the top of the jug as well, but I think it looks nicer coming out the back. Also depending on the size of the hat you get you may need to hot glue it. I find the ones from dollar tree run a little smaller so they fit tight with no glue needed.
