Snowman Hanging Planter
Well we have got our first taste of winter here in Canada and it isn't nice, but along with the cold comes the urge to decorate. If anyone has seen any of my posts I like to decorate for the entire season not just Christmas so when I was deciding to do my hanging baskets of greenery I automatically thought of snowmen!!
First step was to paint my hanging baskets. I had every intention of using spray paint but it is very cold here so I couldn't spray outdoors so I opted for using a can of primer and sealer for outdoors to do my baskets.
After the baskets were dry I took two pieces of foam paper in black and orange and drew eyes and carrot noses.
I glued them on with an outdoor glue and drew on a smile with a black permanent marker.
Next step is choosing two types of ribbon, one will go around the top and the other around the bottom like a scarf.
So apply your glue to the top rim and add your ribbon.
Here it is with the ribbon attached. I used a clip to hold it in place until the glue dried. Next step attach your ribbon around the bottom. I tied it over to look like a scarf.
Here's what it should look like when its finished.
And here is what it looks like with the greenery added. Aren't they adorable?
