Hello there…are you in the holiday spirit yet? We have just started doing a few projects – some crafts, ornaments and hostess gifts. We need to get Santa’s workshop up and running! We have a lot planned that we haven’t even begun to work on 🙂
Call us crazy but, we love cold weather. We had a few flurries yesterday, but that was it. Being that our weather has turned cold and blustery I was inspired to create today’s art project…this cute snowman!
I started with this rustic piece of antique fencing that was leftover from Jennifer’s wedding. I gathered assorted paints and brushes and set to work…
Using white acrylic paint, I created an outline of the snowman…
…and painted within the outline for the snowman’s body.
Still using the white paint, I created a snowflake.
I completed the snowman by painting his face and adding buttons. After I added his hat, I felt like it needed more depth, so I added a holly leaf and berries. For a 3-D effect, I glued down a small branch as his arm,
Finally, I painted the “Let it Snow” phrase. I’m still holding out for some snow 🙂
I’m not sure yet what I’m doing with Mr. Snowman yet. He would be cute on a shelf or mantel tucked in with other decorations. He would also be a great gift!
I sincerely hope that you give painting a try. Especially with this project, it does not have to be perfect as you can see. Just have fun with it…you just might like it!

Thanks so much CoCo – I liked the 3D effect of the branches too 🙂
