This little snowman turned out so cute and bonus, I made it from fall decor I already had!
I love repurposing decor pieces so that they can work for more than one season. I painted this pumpkin stack back in September. You can see how I did it in this video.
The backside was completely smooth, unfinished wood, and I couldn’t wait until it got cold enough to transform it into a snowman.
I started with some white and light blue acrylic paint to create the snowball shapes.
I found adorable unfinished wood mittens in the Christmas ornament aisle at Michaels Craft Store. They were the perfect size for my snowman. Check out the video link below to see how I painted them.
I think the carrot nose was my favorite thing to paint. I go through all the details on how to get it to look three dimensional. Isn’t this the cutest snowman face?
I hand crocheted the hat and scarf. I used a baby hat crochet pattern. You could also use a doll sized hat and scarf if you don’t crochet.
I glued the same fluffy white yarn, that I used on the trim of the hat, to the mitten cuffs.
For The finishing touches, I glued some Spanish moss along the bottom. Then, I painted white acrylic paint over the top to give it a frosted look. I spread a little bit of clear glitter glue on top of the paint so that it looked like Jack Frost had been there.
I am so giddy at how the finished snowman turned out! The best part is that I can remove the hat and scarf to use it as a pumpkin stack again for the fall.
Let me know of my little snowman. If you would like to make it yourself, here is the full video tutorial.
