Oh my if you love snowmen then your going to love this DIY. I have done a few DIY’s using plastic colanders from the Dollar Tree but this is the first time I have made a snowman from them.

 

The supplies you will need are:

1. Four plastic colanders from the Dollar tree

2. Dremel

3. Glue gun

4. Mod podge

5. Paint brush

6. Lace material

7. Black and orange oven bake sculpey

8. Scissors

9. Battery operated sting lights( this is optional)

10. Red felt

The first thing I did was cut 2 holes into the bottom of 2 colanders. This will allow me to put the battery operated lights in. I did this with my dremel.

I then cut the rims off of all four colanders using the dremel.

Next you will cut your lace into small pieces for decoupaging onto each colander.

 

Once all four colanders are decoupaged and dried you will then glue the colanders together. You will glue 2 colanders together using hot glue. You will do this for the four colanders which will give you 2 pieces to form your snowman.

 

Once I had them glued together I then took more pieces of my lace and decoupaged onto the colanders around the rim where I glued them together.

 

You will have a hole in each piece of your snowman which will allow you to place lights inside.

Now you will need to make your nose , eyes and mouth . I just formed and baked them out of the sculpey.

 

Once you have them baked you then glue them onto your snowman.

 

I cut a piece of red felt to make a scarf for the snowman.

 

I added the snowman hat that we made here at The Shabby Tree.
