snowmen centerpieces (from dollar tree items)

merry merry everyone! yes it is a merry time of year full of cheer and lots of parties. so these snowmen centerpieces are just the thing for all your merriment!
that's right these wintry cuties are made from dollar tree products! and i'll show you how easy they come together. 

so let's face it, parties can be expensive to put together and flowers or any party table centerpiece can be crazy expensive especially when you have to buy 6-8 table centerpieces. with these, at about $7 a piece to make, you can have a whole snowmen crew that can cost you less than one floral centerpiece. 

so without further ado, 
let's get to these snowmen shall we?  

you will need the following supplies:
2 snowmen faces per centerpiece, mason jar, buttons, 2 glittery bows (they come in packages of 2), white sand, wooden rod, hot glue gun 
first up, hot glue the snowmen faces back to back. you can apply the hot glue to areas here and there on the border but just leave a small gap at the very bottom of the face below the middle of the snowman's smile to fit the wooden rod. 
i used these roasting sticks that i happened to have already and trimmed them to about 12 inches. 
insert the rod in between the snowmen heads and leave about 6 inches out.

ok put the heads aside and grab your jar and buttons. hot glue a couple buttons to one side of the jar and then again to the other side directly opposite as shown.
once the buttons are on, hot glue a bow right above the buttons on each side of the jar.
then fill your jar with white sand.
grab those snowmen heads and insert in the middle of the sand.

push the rod all the way down into the jar to anchor the snowmen heads.
here you will see what it looks like on the side.
