Melted Texas Sugar Snowman
It's no secret that snowmen don't last long in Texas. With this simple ornament, you can enjoy all the makings of a "sweet" snowman no matter what the climate is. With all the ingredients of a snowman together in a glass ornament, you'll almost believe with a strong gust of cool air and a little Christmas magic, your snowman could come to life. Tip: A funnel will help little hands get the snowman ingredients inside the glass balls.
- With a funnel, pour sugar into the glass ornament - about 1/3 full.
- Shape little "coal" round eyes out of black fondant and a carrot nose out of orange fondant. Alternatively, you can purchase colored sugar sheets from your local craft store (in the baking aisle) and use a hole punch to cut out two eyes and a craft knife to cut out a triangle for the nose.
- Find two little sticks from the yard and cut a small piece of ribbon for the scarf.
- Carefully drop all the pieces of your snowman on top of the sugar snow inside the ornament. Place the hangar portion of the ornament back on top and tie a matching ribbon around the ornament top.
- Hang carefully from your tree.
