This year I thought it would be nice to do a Christmas countdown, showing off things I have made as gifts and ornaments either this year or in previous years. If you are wanting to make handmade gifts for your loved ones this year, then keep watching because I hope to put an awesome Christmas related tutorial or recipe up every day until Christmas Eve. Today is day 13!
Today we are joined by Natalie from North Shore Days. I have adored Natalie's blog for a long time now, go and check her out. You won't regret it!
I'm so excited to be here at Mammy Made sharing a super easy, super cute crafty popsicle stick craft.
I totally copied this pin on pinterest - it's so so easy and I literally winged my way through it. So yes there are missing photos in my excitement to quickly complete this adorable snowman!
What you will need:
Popsicle / craft sticks , white and black craft paint , googly eyes , ribbon, craft paper and a black sharpie.
Line up 8 or 9 sticks and paint them white (I glued another stick diagonally at the back to hold them all together).
Glue another stick across the front at an angle - this will be the rim of the hat. Paint the hat black.
Once the paint is all dry, glue on the eyes, cut out a triangle for the nose and glue it on (I used corregated craft paper). Draw the mouth on, glue a strip of ribbon along the hat.
To hang my snowman, I used black string tied to the hat ends.
Payton has claimed him as her personal snowman ornament! Perhaps next year the kids can make more of them for the tree...
I'm all about snowmen this year for some reason.... The kids think its so funny to have snowmen decorations during Summer. I guess it is...
Is Frosty not the cutest popsicle stick snowman ever?
He has pride of place on our tree this year, and I have to admit I love how easy he was to make and how well he turned out.
Thanks for joining me today, please stop by and visit me at NorthShore Days or my Facebook page and say hi.
Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas.
Thank you so much for joining us today, Natalie. It's been lovely having you!
