Hello friends and happy Thursday! It is hard to believe Christmas is a little less than two weeks away! I know here in Central Illinois many wish for a white Christmas! I actually dream of a 70 degree and sunny Christmas, but I can't help but love the Snowman Mini Wood Pallet Shape! It's so adorable! I first thought I would create a cute little ornament for the tree but then had the idea to make a winter-themed wreath!
I began by painting my Snowman Mini Pallet Shape with a white chalk paint. Chalk paint is one of my favorites to use with Clear Scraps Wood Products because it looks great on the birch! Plus, it dries quickly! I wanted to add a patterned paper as the hat, so using a liquid adhesive, I applied a strip as shown.
Using scissors and an x-acto knife, I cut away excess paper. I then used my sanding tool to smooth any edges. Finally, I was ready to add embellishments to my Snowman!
For my wreath, I used an embroidery hoop with some beautiful shimmer blue ribbon. I even added the same ribbon as the scarf on my Snowman Pallet Shape. Next I used my hot glue gun to affix the Snowman to the bottom center of the wreath. I also adhered smaller embellishments from the collection I used around the wreath's inner circle.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope this inspires you to do some crafting with one of the Clear Scraps' Wood Pallet Shapes! You will find lots of inspiration on our blog! Have a great day!
