Almost everyone loves to incorporate snowmen into their Christmas decorations. We have made a few snowmen here at The Shabby Tree but today I want to create a snowman head. This snowman head will be perfect for the center of a wreath.
The supplies that I’ll be using are:
1. One splatter screen from the Dollar Tree
2. Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint by DecoArt ( color Lace)
3. Mica flakes
4. Elmer’s glue
5. One piece of orange felt
6. Paint brush
7. Hot glue
8. Black chunky yarn
The first step is to paint the splatter screen with the chalky finish paint.
The paint will keep going through the splatter screen . You will want to keep brushing the paint on both sides of the splatter screen and keep going in all different directions.
You will let the paint dry and then you will add on the Elmer’s glue.
Cover the whole front of the spatter screen with the Elmer’s glue and then sprinkle on the Mica flakes.
You will want to pat the mica flakes down onto the Elmer’s glue. Be sure to do the same thing to the back side of the splatter screen.
You will set the splatter screen aside to dry. The next step is to cut out a piece of the orange felt as shown in photo above.
You will add hot glue to half if the straight side.
Bring both sides together and overlap the one half over the half with the hot glue.
This will be the nose to your snowman head. Put hot glue all around the edge of the handle in the middle of the splatter screen.
I added some extra orange felt into the tip of the nose and then placed the nose over the handle.
Once you have the nose glued in place you will then cut seven strips of the black chunky yarn.
I cut my strips about 4 inches long.
You will roll one strip up at a time and then place hot glue on the back side.
You will create the eyes and mouth using the black chunky yarn. Be sure to have the line on the nose where the ends were glued together facing down when glueing the eyes on.
Once your snowman head is formed you can add wire to attach it to a wreath.
This is very easy to make and looks great in the center of a flocked wreath. I hope you will get creative and give this a try.
