Today I am sharing another homemade kid ornament made from a recycled item.

I treated myself to a Starbucks cappuccino recently. My favorite is caramel macchiato. I don’t buy them often, because of the price and calories, but I occasionally like to indulge.
The inspiration to make this Kid Made Snowman Ornament came as I was drinking my yummy cappuccino. My dilemma was that I have 3 kids and only 1 lid. I told my husband I needed to buy 2 more cappuccinos. He suggested that I just ask for a couple more lids, so I comprised. I bought one more cappuccino and asked for a lid. I was surprised to be given a stack of lids, so I need to come up with more coffee cup lid crafts.
- Coffee cup lid
- Small black button (2)
- Orange pom pom
- Small black pom poms (6-8)
- Black ribbon
1. If you are using a used lid, wash thoroughly.
2. Glue buttons on the lid for eyes, orange pom pom for nose, and small black pom poms for mouth.
3. Put a ribbon trough the hole where you would drink your coffee and tie at the top forming a loop to hang from the Christmas tree.
Note: Make this even easier by letting the kids draw the face on their snowman with markers or crayons.

I normally start Christmas shopping after Thanksgiving. Thanks!
I try to get done before Thanksgiving Mandala, but it is not looking so promising this year. I think I am going to be an after Thanksgiving shopper this year as well. Good Luck!

I do most of my shopping after Thanksgiving, as we focus before Thanksgiving getting our Operation Christmas shoeboxes ready or our additional giving gifts ready to be shipped overseas or nationwide. We love this time of year together as a family!
We are doing that with our church.
Aw, that snowman is TOO cute. I can’t wait to make it with my son.
Thanks Tricia! Hope he enjoys it!
I am usually always done Christmas shopping by black friday!!! Less stress that way!
I agree Becky!!! Unfortunately, this year doesn’t look so good…maybe right after, but I will be shopping on a quiet weekday morning.

I start right after Christmas with toys. Great sales! I have 6 grand children and have to buy thriough out the year to afford presents.
We do the same thing Cindy. I don’t care for the crowds either.
I shop all year long, watching for sales and normally start right after Christmas or starting to shop right after the first of the year. My shopping is usually done by the end of August or 1st of Sept.(including bags of toys for ‘Toys for Tots’) except maybe for items for stocking stuffers. This year in Jan. I also started working on family photo ornaments for our family tree.
With my shopping all done it gives me more time to concentrate on our family gathering .
Colleen that is a good plan! I don’t start that early, but I always get a head start. I agree, you can concentrate on what’s important then.
I usually try to have Christmas shopping finished before Thanksgiving, but this year it’s going to have to wait until after.

I do most of my shopping before Thanksgiving because, as soon as Thanksgiving is over, I like to decorate and wrap all the gifts and put them under the tree! 🙂
I never would have thought of using a coffee lid! How creative!
