Quick Craft~Snowman

I made the little guy above years ago.  He is super simple and can probably be made with supplies you already have on hand.  I used an old flour sifter, but you could use a can {if you don’t have one, quick, heat up some green beans and voila-craft supply}.   I didn’t prime the metal, but you certainly could do that if you have some primer on hand.  First, I painted the handle a warm burgundy color.  Next I sponged three overlapping circles {the largest at the bottom, medium size in the middle and smallest on the top} of off white paint into the center of each side of the sifter.  I waited for that to dry and then using the tips only of  a small brush, I brushed the outer edge of the circles with chestnut colored paint {giving it the look of eyelashes}.  When that was dry, I used dark brown to give the little guy some stick arms.  I used black paint for his “coal” eyes, red for his cheeks and then painted some hanging hearts from his arms {once his little arms were dry}.  I added a yellowish gold star to the upper right area.  Once dry, I used an old toothbrush and flecked the areas around him with some white paint to look like snow.  Next , again waiting for everything to dry, I glued on a little button and a red plaid scarf.  That was it.  He has held up for years and was the very first item in my snowman collection. {You can give yours a nose and a mouth…I just thought me looked a little smug so left him that way}.

You could make a few of these to give away as gifts with a bag of homemade candy wrapped with a festive bow inside.
