Hi there, before I get started I wanted to mention this will be my last official post as a member of Spellbinders Blog Team. It sounds odd saying that because I’ve been with them for the last 8 years, I can’t thank them enough for allowing me to be part of something wonderful, but I’m excited for what lays ahead whatever that might be.
I know it’s a little early to start making Christmas items, but I’m always last minute so I thought I should try and sneak some in LOL!
- I started this snowman the same way I did with this project. Here is the supply list provided in the above link.
- Started with a round paper Mache ornament.
- Drilled a hole in it large enough to glue a wooden dowel in.
- Cover with paperclay (not to thick), let dry completely, I let mine sit overnight.
- When dry sand rough areas if needed.
- Paint entire piece with acrylic paint including the wooden dowel (I used a cream color).
- When paint dries, add a thin color wash over the entire piece, and let dry.
- Cut felt using Standard Circles die templates, the circle size you use will depend on the size of the ornament after it’s covered with paper clay. I also die cut cardstock for the hat brim, and hat top so I could glue the felt to I
- Die cut cardstock using the Poinsettia die template, and shade with Distress Ink.
- Paint the eyes, nose, and cheeks, and then add lace/ribbon.
- That’s it.
That’s it for now, thanks for visiting.
