Bring new life to scrap wood (or get wood blocks from the store) by making this gorgeous wood block snowman craft!
This adorable little Christmas craft will make a wonderful decoration for your home, and it’s really easy to make!
This project is great both for kids and adults, and will take care of all of those odd and old gloves you might have laying around.
If you don’t have any gloves to spare, we are sure you have those pairless socks, we all have them. This project makes use of those odd articles of clothes that you store in hopes to find their pair at some day (we never do).
Recycled crafts are the best aren’t they? And this one gives a lot of opportunity to use up scrap and leftover materials.
What you need
- a wood block (scrap wood or store bought)
- acrylic paint – white and optional orange
- permanent marker black
- pair less glove or sock
- glue dots
- rubber band
- optional orange paper for nose
Step by Step Instructions
If you are using scrap wood block, clean it up to remove dirt. You can also use sanding paper to make it smoother.
Let the paint dry, before painting a second (and consequent) layers of paint.
You can also glue a orange carrot out of paper and stick it on (suitable for indoor display, although you could apply varnish over it to make it water resistant).
Draw dots for the mouth under the carrot nose. Make your snowman happy (or sad, it’s up to you).
We used glue dots to attache them, a glue gun or a craft glue will do the work too. No buttons? No worries! Paint the buttons with acrylic paints.
Cut of excess ribbon. If you want your ribbon to be “neat” you can secure it with a bit of glue.
