DIY Frosty the Snowman Candy Gift Pots

Who doesn’t {love} the story of Frosty the Snowman?
He was such a jolly happy soul!

I have many fond childhood memories of watching Frosty the Snowman, building snowmen and watching my mom collect hundreds of them.  Most snowmen just make me smile!  Last year (when I think I had three readers, hee-hee), I shared a DIY Snowman Can.  So, how about an easy DIY Frosty the Snowman candy gift pot?  A great gift for teachers, co-workers, friends, neighbors and maybe even your bloggy friends!

For Halloween, I did a Fabulous & Easy Candy Corn Pots.  Do you remember those?  Well, the steps for this fun project are very similar so I won’t bore you with all the same details.  Jump on over to the candy corn pots for more specifics if necessary.  Deal?

DIY Simple Snowman Candy Gift Pots!  Perfect for a holiday party favor or secret santa gift!  More details at Oh my goodness, cute!  RIGHT?
He totally makes you smile!  Admit it.

Terra Cotta Pots (@ 2.75″ x 2.75″)
Red, White and Black Acrylic Paint
Paint Brushes
Starlight Candies (Dollar Store)
Clear Treat Bags

Step One:  Paint your pots.  White on the bottom, black on the rim/lip.

Step Two:  Sketch your snowman’s face with a pencil onto your pot. This way you can easily erase and correct any boo-boos.

Step Three:  Paint over your pencil sketch.  Use a thin/fine paint brush that is intended for details.  I used Martha Stewarts — they worked perfectly!  Here’s a tip.  I use the opposite end of the paint brush to make my dots. Dab it into the paint and test on paper to ensure how light/hard you will need to press.  This makes thee perfect dot!

Once you’ve painted your snowman faces, you’re ready to fill your treat bags with starlight candies (or other candy of choice), tie with ribbon and gift!  It’s fun, sweet and easy!

Are you tempted to bust out in song?

Happy Everything, friends!

    I pinned these and love your instructions as I was a little intimidate trying the nose. I am doing these for next year for the guys. My theme is red/white/snowman. So I did my tops red, and need a second coat on the white and then I will be doing the face. I picked up the terra cotta pots at the Dollar Tree and I was wondering what I would do with them, but I just knew it would be something I would use and couldn’t pass them up. Now I wish I had gotten 4 more. Oh well I will find them this spring again or Michael’s. Thank you for sharing and I like that they are the directions that pots go and not upside down.
