Snowman in  a Jar christmas decoration from Le Parfait

It’s crunch time this week at Smallful – I have several projects in the works and I want them all done asap! So, this week I want to share with you some of the things that are inspiring me, while I work hard to bring some new ideas to life.

Today, it’s this crystallized little snowman from Le Parfait – you can make your own with the tutorial from Willowday. It’s fitting too – since it’s been snowing here off and on for the last 36 hours. I guess I’m officially declaring it the Christmas season in my home! How about you? Do you start thinking Christmas before Thanksgiving?

This is adorable. Is there a tutorial on how to make this little snowman? I have a kiddo who LOVES making things out of paper. This would be a fun project for him.

I haven’t been able to find one – and I wish there was a tutorial too!
What about making one using these templates from Mini Eco: http://www.minieco.co.uk/paper-decorations-winter-edition/

Mari, thanks so much for sharing my link! I love your site. (And this brand of jars, too) So….every time I see that project I think “my snowman’s gone traveling!” Although it’s really cute, it’s our guy! I really appreciate that you spread the link to template to see if he can now really travel the world! I had such fun imagining him and making him with the kids. /G

You know what, I updated the link to make it yours – because the original link is kind of iffy anyway. SUCH a cutie, I have to sit down and make one soon!
