Wooden Snowman Tutorial

supplies:

  • 2×4 cut to 6 inches long {included in kit}
  • 2×4 cut to 8.5 inches long {included in kit}
  • white paint
  • paint brush
  • black marker
  • liquid glue
  • glitter
  • sandpaper
  • fabric for scarfs {included in kit}

  1. sand the edges of the wood.
  2. paint the wood white. spray paint or craft paint works great.
  3. draw 2 eyes with the marker. *tip: i tied the fabric scarf on so i could use it as a reference for eye placement.

4. apply a thick coat of liquid glue to all sides {except the bottom} with the paint brush. i used Decoupaige which acts as a sealer as well.

5. while the glue is still wet, sprinkle on glitter. *Tip: do this inside of a box or a cookie sheet to catch the excess glitter. brush out any glitter that fell onto the eyes.

6. tie on the fabric scarf. and you’re done!!

    Hi! Is there a reason you used Decoupage glue as opposed to Mod Podge or other ones? Sorry if this is a stupid question — I am just beginning to craft and don’t know what is what.

    Love this snowman. Did you use 2×4 or 4×6 pieces of wood? Or are they different sizes?

    Sue Kelly says:

    I love the snowmen. I would’nt think a 2×6 piece of wood would stand up by it self. Great easy craft.

    Just saw your snowmen on Pinterest … they are so cute and easy to
    To make. So glad I read all the comments from people to get a correct size
    Of the boards you used. I know I have enough scraps around to make them.
    Love the simplicity of them!!
