Today I wanted to share a cute little craft I made awhile ago. I apologize for not having a lot of pictures from the steps, but it's pretty basic, so hopefully you will be able to follow along. Let me know if you have questions!
What you Need:
- Small clay pot
- White, orange, pink, and black craft paint
- Black Sharpie (optional)
- Paintbrushes (both smaller and larger sizes)
- Modge Podge
- Small (1/2 inch) pom poms
- Black pipe cleaner
- Hot Glue Gun
What to Do:
Take your small clay pots and paint the outsides and bottom with white. Let dry for 5-10 minutes and paint a second coat. If necessary, add a third coat - you don't want any of the pot showing through.
Using a small paintbrush, draw on the face, eyes, cheeks, and nose. If preferred, you can use the sharpie to draw the eyes and mouth on your snowman. Using the pink and orange craft paint, add checks and a "carrot" nose. Using a Q-tip can work great for making nice round "cheeks."
Once your face is on, seal your snowman with a light coat of modge podge.
For the scarf, you can either paint it on, use scrapbook paper and modge podge, or scraps of fleece fabric and the glue gun.
Finally, using the hot glue gun, attach the pom poms and pipe cleaner to create earmuffs.
Ta-Da! You have a cute quick and easy winter decoration :)
