Crafty Snowman Copy


I bought this Snowman from a vendor place that I like to frequent.  It was so cute and I was with a friend and she said I would really love one of those for myself and for her sister for Christmas.

Now I am not Mrs. Crafty by any stretch of the imagination but I looked at it and said I think I can make these.

Off to Hobby Lobby I headed.

This was what they used for their snowman base.  A candle votive.

Before my trip to Hobby Lobby I thought I need to get some bases.  I found two of the above at Goodwill and the other one the clear candlestick at Home Goods.

Picked up ribbon and bling pieces from Hobby Lobby.  Everything was 1/2 off SCORE!!!

Here is where I ran into a snag in the crafting project.  I looked everyone on line and in Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Walmart to find the snowman hats.  Could not find anything that would work.  

Like in the Three Bears story they were either too small or too big or not made of felt.
I had a delima.  I did not let it stop me.  While in Walmart I came across these snowman tree toppers for $10.  The hat was perfect and I would have the noses too.
Score again.

They worked out perfect and since they were tree toppers they had reinforcement inside the hat to keep them tall and full.

This was theirs and below you will see what I came up with.

The one on the very far right is the one I bought to copy.  Of course I could not leave it alone so I blinged it up a little more than it was.
The other three are the 
ones I made.  I had a vintage snowman hat and it worked out perfect to do the little rustic snowman.

I like the way they came out.  My friend took the two taller ones I made and I have the little primitive rustic guy for my daughter Jen and the other taller snowman I bought and fixed up for my other daughter Kimmie.

These were pretty easy to make.  The heads I originally thought were white plastic pumpkins but nope they are big white ornaments I found at Hobby Lobby.  They are exactly the same as the sample.

I think they came out pretty cute.  I am not as crafty as some of you are.  I do not sew but I am mighty with my glue gun!!!

I used buttons for the eyes the noses came from the tree toppers and all the other ribbon and bling pieces I found at Hobby Lobby.

I used blush for their cheeks.
Have a good week.

  19. Oh my goodness! Those are so cute! I love how yours turned out. I’d say you are very crafty!
    Funny, I’ve been looking for a top hat too but there are none to be found. I don’t think my Walmart has the snowman toppers you found. I’ll just have to come up with my own, I guess. Your snowmen are adorable!

Enjoy the Season and thanks for the lesson and the show and tell. Enjoy..They will be cute for a long time in the Winter. Bling love love.

  22. Kris. I haven’t seen you in quit awhile. Last post was renovating your 4th (?) home. I was worried something might have happened. So glad your post show up. Love your snowmen. Great job. Tfs cheers

  23. Oh My Goodness, all your snowmen are so cute!! Love them. What a great idea someone came up with.................and nice that it was fairly easy to duplicate. Yea, glue guns are awesome for things like that. Haven't had mine out in a long time. If I get some extra time I might want to try making one of these cute snowmen.
    Love how you embellished yours, beautiful as always.
    Have a lovely Christmas Season!! Can't believe Friday is Dec. 1st already.
