Soda Bottle Snowman

Filed in Winter

I saw a really cute snowman made out of a soda bottle in a magazine so we decided to give it a try.

First you’ll need- an empty soda bottle, white paint (*we used Tempra paint, and I do NOT recommend using it for this kind of project) and something to paint with.

First cover the soda bottle with white paint.

While the paint dries, gather the rest of your supplies:

Sticks, tissues, glue, felt for a scarf, pink paint, wiggle eyes, sock, orange paper and a pom pom.

Stuff some tissues into the sock and glue the pom pom on to the top of the sock- this will be the hat.

Dot some pink paint on for cheeks, add eyes, nose, mouth, scarf and sticks.

The finished snowman.

*You should probably use acrylic paint if you do this.  We used Tempra paint and the paint started flaking off of the bottle as it dried.  It was actually difficult to finish the project because when Hailey tried to add things to the snowman the paint would fall right off.  So, the idea is really cute- just use a different kind of paint.

    Oh, very cute! We should give it a try as well.
    If you mix paint with pva glue or cover the bottle with tissue paper before painting, then the paint shoudn`t flake off.
