Industrial Cable Spool Snowman

This cute snowman was made using the end of a cable spool. The spool ends were given to me by a friend and everything else I used I had on hand. So, the cost of this project was basically just my time, which was less than an hour!
I started by giving the spool end a whitewashing of paint.
Vintage drawer pulls were screwed on for the eyes.
Five Ball jar lids create the mouth.
A vintage spool from a cotton mill serves as the nose.
I used pallet wood leftover from another project to make the hat and then a strip of fabric was added.
All this snowman needs is a snow woman!
