Wood Snowmen family

Here is our next project for the Woodridge Craft and Sewing group:

(I know that I am missing arms, I didn't realize it until began to post these.  I will try and take pictures tomorrow with the "twig" arms.)

These are a great winter transition from Christmas to Valentine's holidays.  I never know what to decorate with in January - seems too soon for Valentine's and I want the Christmas decor gone around New Years.  We found this idea from Today's Fabulous Finds .  She made them a little different but the 3 blocks on top of each other is the same.

Our next Craft Group will be on Wednesday, January 18th at 9 am at the Woodridge Church Building. 

We plan on bringing:
  • Wood blocks
  • Small piece of wood for hat
  • Paint (both Black, Orange and White)
  • Bamboo Skewers (to hold them upright)
  • Hot Glue
  • Sandpaper
  • Sanders
  • Paintbrushes
  • Mod Podge
  • Blush/chalk for cheeks

What you will need to bring:
  • Anything you want to decorate them with -
  • Buttons, Ribbons, Flowers, yarn, jute, fabric, scrapbook paper (click this LINK for other ideas)
  • $3 for a 3 block tall snowmanIf you would like a small one  (2 blocks) like the hot pink one above then those will only be $2
  • We are setting a limit on the number you can make (otherwise Amy will be cutting and sanding for days.)  No more then 5 complete snowman please.

Please respond by comment on this post or by email.  Please indicate the number of snowmen you want.  (I will assume 3 block snowman unless you let me know.)

Last day to order is Saturday, January 14th.

Now I just wanted to show you how cute my kids are.  While I was making these snowmen, I let them create their own snowman.  They both thought it was pretty cool.  We only got a little paint on our clothes (even with aprons.)  But here are their masterpieces.
