great for those of you ladies who are looking to do Christmas craft shows this Fall! These little snowman ornies are super "
Christmas Greenery, Red Berries & Small Pine Cone
Acrylic Craft Paints-Black, White, Burnt Orange, Burnt Umber & Red
*Spray paint the clear plastic ornament in the heirloom white spray paint. Let the ornie dry.
*Paint some watered down burnt umber craft paint on to the ornie. Lightly wipe it off with a soft rag to give it that great "aged" look.
*Paint a "cute" little snowman face on to the ornie. You can give your snowman round, oval or tear drop shaped eyes, along with a "carrot" nose and a little mouth of your choosing. Don't be afraid to play around. You can't go wrong with any "cute" little snowman face. (If you are not a painter then go ahead and give your snowman "button" eyes and a sewn or clay nose.
*Cut a rectangle piece out of the bottom of an old sweater. (I like to use the bottom because a lot of them are "ribbed" at the bottom. This "ribbed" part makes a genuine looking winter hat.)
*Glue the seam of the hat together in the back.
*Gather the top of the hat, holding the gathers together with a little dollop of glue.
*While the glue is still hot, press the top of the snowman's hat against the ornie.
*Glue a 1" rusty bell to the top of the snowman's hat.
*Garnish the snowman ornie with some Christmas greenery, red berries and a small pine cone.
*Glue two small bows made from "jute" to the ornie...one to the top of the hat and one to the bottom of the snowman.
*Glue a small "jute" hanger to the top of the snowman's hat.
*Splatter paint the snowman with some burnt umber & white craft paint.
*Dab a little white craft paint on to the Christmas greenery, red berries, pine cone, jute bows and the snowman's nose & cheeks.
*Seal the snowman's face using a matte sealer.
Walla...you have just finished "ORP's" super simple
