Christmas craft showcase diy snowman 1

Isn’t he cute!

 

junk treasures

I started with some junk treasures from My Favorite Junk Shop.

 

salvaged treasures

The reclaimed wood door panel came from the Nashville Flea Market.

 

hanger for the snowman

I added a saw tooth hanger and pad protectors to the back of the panel before I started on the snowman.

 

project in progress

I cut a basket for his hat.

You can see how shiny one piece is where I used Elmers Spray-on Glue Adhesive to keep it from coming apart.

trying out bits and pieces

 

nailing the lids to the door

I attached the enamel pot lids using a punch to start the holes in the lid and an electric drill to finish the hole.

Then I just screwed the lids to the panel.

 

sorting through buttons for the snoman

selecting buttons and drawer knobs for eyes and mouth

I used E6000 to adhere the buttons and knobs.

I chose burlap for his scarf and attached it at the neck with a white staple tack thingy (?don’t ask me).

The hat was attached with regular staples Winking smile
