Snowmen Ornaments - with Chelsea [and a giveaway]

Hi! I'm Chelsea, the blogger behind the Big, Beautiful & Broke blog! I'm super excited to be hanging out on Lindsay's side bar this month and even more excited that she's letting me take the blog over today!!


My husband and I love crafts and DIY projects. With the winter months looming here in Michigan, I figured I'd share a fun winter craft with you guys!

Snowmen Ornaments


What You'll Need:
Pre-cut wooden circles of various sizes.
Pre-cut wooden ovals
White, Black and Orange Acrylic Paint
Paint brush
Blush
Small Make-up brush
Fabric remnants
Glue gun
Wire
Drill

This project is fairly easy. The wooden pieces I purchased pre-cut from JoAnn's. Next I painted the circles white and the ovals orange. I had my husband drill small holes in the tops of the circles prior to painting them white.

After the orange and white paint dried, I added the black flecks of paint. To do this, all you do is dip the brush in the paint and flick the bristles. This gives you the little specks.
Glue the orange ovals onto the white circles. Next, I put a tiny bit of blush on the cheeks to give them a nice rosy color. 

Take a small piece of fabric to make the scarf and use the glue gun to attach to the snowman. I cheated and used a sharpie to make the eyes.
I used jewelry wire to make the hanging loop, but you can use anything you want (string or ornament hangers).

That's it!! A cute, fun snowman project!! 

Good luck and Happy Crafting!
