Snowman Family {Guest Post by Tasha}

Snowman Family
So I had some extra wood lying around, and my sister and I decided to make a snowman family. They turned out PRETTY cute! 

You will need: 
*Fabric for the head wraps, and scarves. I probable used a 1/3 of each. 
(at Joannes they had a 4 pack of christmas fabrics for 10 dollars, so I bought that.)
*Glue Gun
*Twin, string, anything that you can tie the top of the hat with.
*Orange, White and Black Paint
*Wood. Depending on how tall you want your tallest one, then cut an inch or 2 off of the second, and an inch or 2 off the 3rd.

When I cut my blocks I didnt measure how tall they were, I just sorta guessed how tall I wanted them..so I cant give you exact measurements.. It just depends how tall YOU want your cute snowman's to be! I painted my blocks white, let them dry, then tied the head wraps on. I hot glued the fabric to the snowman blocks, then with twin I tied the top of it. Wrapped my scarfs around each one. Then painted the faces on. you can use your creativity and use buttons for the eyes, felt or fabric for the nose, I just had paint in the closet, so that's what I used! I painted my cute little nose, and eyes. Once they were all made, I set them on my porch! 
Happy Snowman Making!!!

What kind of paint did you use. Is it weather proof to handle being in the snow or to get wet. For I was gonna use acrylic paint but fear that it would washout after a few days in the elements.

Thanks!

Thank you for the awesome idea. I have a million pieces of 2x4's. I made one tonight and i had a jar of that fake snow stuff so i added that on top of the white paint its darling! Jenny you can use acrylic paint. I've used it for a tom of outside stuff and its never washed of or faded! Plus you can you use a clear sealer to seal it!
