Fishbowl Snowman

*My friend made an awesome tutorial for this but I can't figure out how to post a Word Doc, SO email me and I will send you the instructions.  mymixofsix@hotmail.com*

You take this
image
And invert it into a fluted bowl-
image
Don't put a fish in it though, use white lights.  The fluted edge makes it possible for the white light's cord to come out.  Be sure and use white lights that have a white cord because if you don't the green cord will show through.  Kim said that they used a strand of 50 small white lights.

Use a men's sock to cover and hold the fish bowls all together.  Cut a small cord in the back for the cord to come out the back of the snowman.  The fleece scarf will then cover the hole and disguise the fluted edge.
image
Then decorate however you wish with buttons and fleece.  They are really cute!  The pictures don't do them justice.  They are fun plugged in at night or even unplugged during the day.

Anyway, hope that answers all the questions.  Thanks again for making them for me Kim!!!

I fell in love with these and just finished making my first. It is so super cute I can't wait to make more as gifts. As for the hats I found a great tutorial on YouTube for no sew hats like those pictured. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3d8Yi3wQDA&feature=youtube_gdata_player
I was having trouble pasting the address so if it doesn't work it is a no sew toque and she is making a pink zebra print one. Hope that helps everyone. Happy snowman making :-)

what size are the bowls?

Anonymous said...

I used a woman's soft fuzzy sock.looks better than a plain old mans sock.looks more like snow!

Leah said...

I wonder if you can get the bowls in plastic instead of glass to prevent being broken easily........

How about using infant hats? I think they would be small enough.

Just finished making one. Well two. It was super easy. Got lights from Lowe's, bowls, men's socks fuzzy gloves and socks, google eyes all from Dollar Tree. I put glove for head and tied garbage tie around fingers to form the tuft on top. Cut sock to make it long and used as scarf. Used hot glue gun to tuck and shape too. It's so cool looking and you have extra stuff left over to make another one. Thanks for this great craft.
