Easy DIY Seashell Snowman Christmas Ornament

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving! Sean and I had the whole week off, which was divine, and we were able to celebrate Thanksgiving and and an early Christmas with family in Maryland and Virginia. It was our first trip down south since our whirlwind weekend visit in June, when my niece took on the task of collecting pretty clam shells on the beach. I had been saving them for some sort of DIY project to give at Christmas, and with a little Pinteresting, I decided on these cute snowmen ornaments.

The difficulty level was literally zero. I picked up a hot glue gun and puff paint for cheap on Amazon. (Seriously, the glue gun was $12 and works great. I want to hot glue everything in my life now.) I glued the clam shells together in snowman-like fashion, then glued some yarn I had handy in a loop to the back...The shells are heavy, so I glued the yarn all the way down to avoid all of the weight on one shell. Buttons, face, and carrot nose with puff paint and you are done! Let the puff paint dry for a few days so it is fully hardened. If you don't have shells handy, winter is a great time to collect them since there is little traffic at the beach, or you can buy a bag of them at the craft store. Happy Christmasing!
