Wow…Christmas stuff is lining the shelves already! Some people HATE it this early…others LOVE it… like me!!! Christmas is my favorite time for crafting. I thought I would share this quick craft project I recently finished that came out SO stinkin’ cute. These little, white AC Moore brand “bitty boxes” came 6 to a package and I immediately saw another opportunity for snowman faces!!!
I use this red oxide paint for all my snowman noses, because it’s actually more of a burnt orange. I’ve had this paint since highschool and probably painted 1000 snowman noses with it!!!
And a sharpie paint pen for the eyes and mouth…
A small stencil brush works great for the little rosy cheeks. I wipe off as much paint as I can and just “dry brush” the cheeks.
Then to seal, I turned to my trusty sparkly Mod Podge. A quick coat, and DONE!
Wouldn’t they make cool little stocking stuffers or trinket boxes? Fill them with candy, or a small gifts or ornament? I am going to put a basket of these out for sale tonight at the co-op and see how they do!
I have so many other projects in the works but no pictures yet. I’ll be sure to get them up soon. My tin mitten pins, homespun candy canes both large and small, tea-stained Christmas gift tags…the list goes on! So much to do before the BIG show in Dec!!!
Have a great day and enjoy this crisp, fresh, Fall air while it lasts!!! Happy hump day! 🙂
