I’m super excited about this DIY. I bought a roll of screening from Home Depot and realized that it is an amazing craft item. I love it because it is very easy to work with with and is also something that can be placed outside . There are so many things that we can create with this but our first item is a snowman head.
The supplies you will need for this are:
1. A roll of screen (I purchased mine from Home Depot)
3. Thin and flexible wire
4. Wire cutters
5. Spray paint (I am using a cream and black)
6. Paint (I am using a cream, black and orange)
7. Paint brush
8. Polyester fiberfill (I purchased mine from Hobby Lobby)
The first step is to spray paint some of your stuffing.
You will want to spray paint some cream and some black.
Next you will want to cut your screen. I am first cutting a circle for my snowman head. You can make your head as big as you want. Be sure to double the screen when cutting out your circle because you will need a back and front.
Once your head is cut out you will then need to cut out your hat.
I fold my double layer in half and cut the shape of a top hat.
Now it is time to use your wire to start sewing your two circle pieces together.
Be sure to leave a big opening for adding your stuffing.
You will add the stuffing that your spray painted cream to the circle part. Once you have it stuffed you will close your opening shut.
Now it is time to add your hat. You will place one piece on the front of your circle and the other piece on the back of your circle. Now you will need to use your wire to attach both pieces to your circle.
You will come across the bottom of the hat first.
Next you will want to add a little stuffing . You will be adding the stuffing that you spray painted black.
Now you will continue using your wire and sew across the brim area.
Once you have the brim of the hat formed you will add stuffing to the rest of the hat.
You will use the wire to close the remaining sides of the hat.
You will then take your cream acrylic paint and paint over the screen where your cream colored stuffing is.
You will do the same thing to the hat.
Once you have painted the hat area you will then need to paint on your eyes and mouth.
You will then use the orange paint to create a nose.
I decided to add a strip of burlap and some greenery to the hat.
I used the wire to attach the strip of burlap to the hat.
I wrapped some wire around a piece of greenery and then attached it to the burlap and hat.
I love this idea because you can create this snowman head as big or as small as you want. This is an amazing Christmas decoration and I hope you will all give it a try!
