Here’s a fun idea Karen sent in. All it takes is someone with a vision – then a simple pail becomes a snowman. Love it!
Good afternoon Laura,
While I am not particularly crafty, one of my daughters is very gifted. She took one look at these metal buckets and saw snowmen! The little ones come three in a package in the party supply section of our local Dollar Store (3 for $1). The bigger one was on a clearance rack at Joann Fabrics for $2. We simply cut shapes from some felt scraps we already had and used the hot glue gun to attach. We thought about adding more decorations but decided on the simple look. Just fill with treats, nuts, or granola for gifting. With the huge success of Frozen and the snowman character Olaf, these have been a big hit with kids!
This ends our Homemade Gifts for Less Than $5 series. I have had so much fun creating gifts and learning from you. THANK YOU all for making this series so successful and enjoyable. Now be watching for what’s coming up next here at Heavenly Homemakers – a special healthy living invitation and our annual Holiday Brunch. I can’t wait to share these delicious recipes with you!
