This holiday season add a little twinkle to your décor, let it sparkle and shine. Deck the tree to your tabletop with dazzling mirror snowman ornaments. These glistening ornaments are quick and simple ways to add a festive atmosphere to your home and décor without spending a lot of time or money. Adding even one new style of

ornaments can give your tree a whole new updated look even if you decorate your Christmas tree the same way each year. Let the kids get involved so you create wonderful holiday memories at the same time.


On a clean surface, line up the mirror circle shapes to make the main shape of the

snowman. Each snowman body consist of two sets of mirror pieces, one for the front

and one for the back. Use the largest circles for the bottom of the snowman, the

medium ones for the middle, and the smallest ones for the head, with the mirror side

facing down. Wire tree branch like arms and a decorative string are sandwiched

between the mirror shapes. This will allow the mirror snowman ornaments to reflect

from all directions, no matter where you put them.
