Shopping at the local hardware store, I happened to walk down the tile aisle and saw this cute Arabesque style tile. I thought it would be perfect to turn into ornaments for Christmas, or even just Winter decorations. Already being white, if I made snowmen, no painting would be required, just stickers!! I always love making those! I headed up to the craft room and started getting things ready. Finding some cute little faces on one of the craft sites that I use, it was easy to just cut them out and attach them to each piece. I think the hardest part was pulling the tiles apart. You have to be kind of careful with that! All in all, it was fun to do, and the people that I gave one to, loved them!
I sure hope that you like the tutorial, and pray that you have a blessed day!

Instructions for the Arabesque Tile Snowman:
I started by heading to the local hardware store, and buying one sheet of Arabesque tile. One sheet makes a bunch of them, so it’s only like $3! I started by pulling apart each of the pieces.
You’ll notice the little tabs, will still hang on to certain sides of the tile pieces. Using a pair of pliers, I started pulling them off. Just be careful when you’re doing it, as to not break the tile, or smack yourself with the pliers. Not like that happened to me, or anything! 🙄
Once you have the pieces all apart, and cleaned up, you can start on your faces. I used my Cricut to cut out some faces that I found on a local craft site. You could make these look however you want, or even paint them on, if you’re talented that way.
Next, I used my Cricut to make some pieces for the back, out of felt. I traced the ornaments and scanned the page to then have it cut out on my Cricut. Using a glue gun, I added some adhesive around the edges. I had already cut some pieces of twine, to use as hangers, so I set that down, and then placed the felt on top of it, to secure it all. You might want to check and make sure if you don’t need extra glue in some spots.
Now, you can hang them wherever you want, or give them out as gifts, like I did. Simple to make and can be changed to whatever you want. I wish I was talented in painting. There are some of those snowman faces that I love, but I was not given that talent. I’ll stick with the stickers! 😀
What do you think? I hope you like it! Please take a minute to leave me a comment on what you would like to create, and maybe if you have any tips on how to do it different, or better!
Be sure to tweet, pin, share, etc. – thanks!!
