Hi, Connie here with a decorated Snowman Pallet shape by Clear Scraps. Great looking for your Christmas decor. Snowmen love hanging out on front doors, under Christmas trees or by fireplaces. See what you think~
To create this project you will need acrylic white paint to begin. Water the paint down and paint everything except the hat. By watering the paint down it will cover more wood and give the project a distressed look. The hat will be painted black and gray, then stenciled with some snowflakes. (Not showing up in the photo but they are there.)
Paint a carrot nose and a smiley face on the snowman's face. The eyes are small round dots. Dip the end of a paint brush into black paint and use that to place the eyes on the snowman. Works great and makes them the same size, which is hard to do sometime.
Paint the chipboard holly with green (for the holly leaves) and red (for the holly berries). Accent with white on the berries. Adhere, when they are dry, on the hat.
I used the 6" Holly Fun stencil to add the holly around the snowman's neck. I used a soft foam brush to apply the paint to the stencil. Dab off the paint. To much paint will go under the stencil.
Add the sticks for the arms. Paint the mini Tree pallet shape and add it to the bottom of the snowman. I placed holes in the top of the hat with the crop-a-dile. So easy this way. Speckle with black paint. I speckle using an old tooth brush. I like to have control on where the paint is going.
