Paint a Snowman

wooden snowman

A super fun idea that I found several years ago to make, is this wooden snowman. I don't know about you, but I love snowmen. There is something about them that they just make me smile! This guy is so super easy to make. Your whole family can help to make a batch to give away as a winter treat to friends, family and neighbours.

Supplies:

~ 1 by 1 wood post

~ white, rose, black, & orange acrylic paint

~ buttons

~baby sock

~ heavy gauge wire

~1" by 3" piece of fabric

~ glue gun

~embellishments

~small wood dowel

Cut wood to 5" length and paint white.  Drill a nose hole and two small arm holes. Sand small dowel at one end to resemble a carrot and then paint orange. Paint on eyes and mouth. You can also lightly dab on the cheeks. When dry, glue on buttons and glue in nose. Cut two three" lengths of wire. Wrap around a pencil to get a nice curl in the wire. Then glue each wire into the arm holes. Take baby sock and cut off the foot section. Then take the fabric and tie at the half way point of the sock. This is the snowman's hat. Glue the hat onto the snowman. Add any embellishments that you like.

   Well, Christmas is over, but the Christmas Love Campaign is NOT over! Remember we have another giveaway going on. You have a chance to win some awesome product from Jenni Bowlin! Just leave a comment here or on the face book page letting us know how your spreading some Christmas Love!
