Record Album Snowman Signs

2-DSCF2220Record Album Snowman Signs

I’m set up at a craft show today, but my husband is watching the booth while I make chicken noodle soup. Yum! I’ll be heading back in a few, but I wanted to share my latest project for the show.

I saw something similar to these on Pinterest, but I couldn’t locate a tutorial. No worries. I winged it.

They are made from old record albums.

1-DSCF2218I didn’t write a tutorial either, but they were not difficult. I have to say, I’m a little in love with painting on an album surface. The texture is kinda interesting.

If you are in Arkansas City, Kansas today, come say hello.

Here are the particulars.

Beta Sigma Phi’s 38th annual Sorority Craft Fair — 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov. 15, Agri-Business Building, 712 W. Washington Ave., Arkansas City.

Hurry, there isn’t much time left! 😉

  1. Love these! I also paint on records, the snowmen I painted this year on records have a hat on. I painted some last year without the hat and in the middle circle to cover the label….then I added in writing, Frosty’s Greatest Hits or Frosty The Snowman. I didn’t write a tutorial either. You can check them out on my Blog. The Primitive Skate.

  2. Leave it to you to find way to salvage records. This is so awesome, so cute. I had to go over to see your pallet snowman, want to do one also. Do you sand down your pallets? You are great painter also. What do you charge for something like that at a show? Hubs made a tree yesterday but didn’t make it way I had in mind. He always has to do what he wants. What do you charge for your trees? By size or all the same?

    • The pallet I used was already pretty smooth. No sanding was needed. That may not be the same for every pallet. Pricing? Well, for me it has always depended on location. When I lived in Denver I could charge a lot more than I do now…living in a small town…You might try checking out a few local shows and facebook pages of local crafters.
