I mentioned in my last post about ornaments that I had made for my annual ornament party and that I had hoped to post my ornaments that I am making for this year's party. Well, here they are! I saw on pinterest (the link is to etsy.com) some cute snowmen made by using blocks of wood and burlap hats so I decided to make a minature version for the ornaments.
burlap (8" x 4 1/2") for cap
orange, black, and white paint for face
blocks of 2x4 (1 1/2" wide)
I used 2x4s of course... and cut them to be around 1 1/2 inches wide. Then I sanded them and painted them a cream color. So they looked like this:
I then painted the face on them. I used the wrong end of the paint brush to make the circles and carrot for the nose so it turned out like this:
Next, I used my trusty hot glue gun to glue the piece of burlap for the cap. I folded it about 1/2 inch and placed it around an inch from the top of the block. Starting on the back I put the folded side towards the bottom and then glued it all around. Lastly, I used a piece of twine to tie the cap. This is the finished product:
I loved how they turned out and think that I might have to make the larger version of this anyway. What do you think?
Enjoy your crafts!
