Welcome to the Christmas Craft Showcase.
The showcase features 15 bloggers and 15 super stupendous, amazingly awesome, creative Christmas crafts!
I present to you…..(drumroll)……..Bluster the Snowman.
Isn’t he cute!
I started with some junk treasures from My Favorite Junk Shop.
The reclaimed wood door panel came from the Nashville Flea Market.
I added a saw tooth hanger and pad protectors to the back of the panel before I started on the snowman.
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
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.
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
What do you think of Bluster?
