My Pedestal Snowman Project


 
 
 
 
My inspiration came from here
 
 
 
 
 
 
Page 76
 
 
 
They used clay....
 
I used styrofoam
 
 
 
 
 
with gloved hands and drywall joint compound


I covered the styrofoam balls

 
just smear it on
 
 
 
 
then let the joint compound dry thoroughly 
 
 
 
paint with acrylic craft paints and let dry
 
brush on a little decoupage glue and apply glitter to the upper half of the "snowballs"
 
add buttons...


tinsel

 
 
wire arms...
 
 


 vintage style snowman face with
 a little styrofoam bump glued on for a nose...

I chose to glue my snowman to a
pedestal  (small chrome candle holder)
 


I love how he turned out !!!






I'm off to make a few more for our upcoming
Annual Church Bazaar.
  
Go here to see a different snowman I made
 for last year's Bazaar.
 
 
Warm Hugs,
