Welcome to Christmas Every Monday. Each Monday in October, I will have a few fun and simple projects for you to start working on ahead of the holidays.
Today's theme is Snowmen!
Let's get started!
List of supplies for all items today. If you gather all of these items, you can whip out all of these in an afternoon.
These items were all from Dollar Tree:
Set of Salt & Pepper Shakers (clear glass)
Clear Plastic Ornaments 2/$1.00
From my stash and/or Michaels:
5 1/2" tall flowerpot
4 1/2" flowerpot saucer
Orange scrapbook paper
Black spray paint
White spray paint
Red spray paint and/or red acrylic
Small Christmas ribbon
Here we go ------
Flowerpot Candle Holder
Take a 5 1/2" flowerpot and spray it white. Add red to the rim - either spray paint and/or acrylic. If you use spray paint, mask off the white part and spray.
The cheeks are done with actual blush from my make up box. Rub it on with your fingers and then soften it out around the edges. Add the eyes and mouth with black acrylic paint. I used a small heart painted orange for the nose, however, you could use orange felt. I dip a Qtip in the paint. It makes really nice big dots.
Turn the flowerpot saucer upside down and spray paint in black.
Glue the black saucer to the top of your painted flowerpot. Add candle.
Add a spray of holly with berries.
Project #1 is done.
I highly recommend using this spray paint. It is a primer and will cover everything we are working on.
Wine Glass Candle Holder
Spray a wine glass with the white spray paint.
Paint the same face as the first project. Add an orange felt nose and some kind of Christmas greenery around the candle.
Project #2 done!!
The Melting Snowman Ornament
This is super simple!!
Take a clear plastic ornament and add Kosher salt to it, then whole peppercorns and a tiny orange nose made out of a rolled up piece of scrapbook paper.
Project #3 - Done!!
Snowmen Salt & Pepper Shakers
These are spray painted white, face painted as previous projects, nose cute out of orange felt and any kind of Christmas ribbon wrapped and tied around neck.
Project #4 - done!!
These projects will all be easy and very affordable to make for teachers, neighbors, etc.
Hope you enjoy!
