Snowman Love

Hi everyone! Can you believe Christmas is only nine days away?!!?!? YIKES!!! I have been shopping, wrapping presents and crafting up a storm and I'm still not finished. I decided to take a break and share a snowman I created using a Smooth Foam ball I had received in package of ornaments a month or so ago.
I started out by applying two coats of gesso to the ball and then painting with some white acrylic paint. I lightly penciled in the eyes and mouth. Painted the mouth with black and "pounced" the cheeks with a light pink acrylic paint, adhered two black Dew Drops to the ball for the eyes and shaped a carrot nose from Sculpey clay and then baked it.


The chipboard snowflake cut out I painted with white paint and then added a fine glitter to it. I gessoed a bottle cap which I used as the "neck" of my snowman.



I used an old sheet of music to make a cone hat for my little snowman fellow. Added some silver tinsel, button, mini snowflake and a white Dew Drop to it. I set the hat aside and then covered the whole snowman head and scarf with fine glitter. Let dry and then glue the cone hat to the snowman. 


I plan on adding this little fellow to my collections of other snowmen that I have on the  fireplace mantle.




Supplies Used:
Chipboard Snowflake Shape
Bottle Cap
Fine Glitter
Vintage Sheet of Music
Tinsel
Round and Snowflake Buttons
Orange Sculpey Clay 
Gesso
Antique Mod Podge
Black and Pink Acrylic Paint
