Wooden Snowman Christmas Decor


On one of my many trips to the thrift store I found a large bag of little wooden parts and pieces. It looked as though someone had tried a few things on a new lathe and also gather a lot of bits and pieces. I had no idea what I would use them for but they intriqued me and I thought they would come in handy in the future.
Going through them I found a ball with a flat side and a cup like piece. I decided to glue the flat sides together and then painted it all white except the little lip on the cup - I painted black.
Then with a sharpie I added some eyes, a mouth and some buttons. Now it's starting to look like something.
I added a felt scarf and a little cap - and oh how cute he started looking. So I decided to give him a glitter bath to make him sparkle a bit.
Then I placed him in a forest of bottle brush trees and "faux" snow. Love this cute little scene that can be used not only for the holidays but well into the winter months.

    Cathy, this little guy is adorable. He may be 2 years old, but he was in a group of snowmen sent out in the Hometalk "newsletter" today. I just had to find your original post to tell you how much I love him! Merry Christmas!
