Snowman Spoon Ornaments
My craft show this past weekend was a huge success. It was so good that I was really surprised I still had so much stuff to pack up. Since I only have one more show planned before Christmas you would think I don’t need to make anything new. Uh…you would be wrong. I can’t help it. Creating things makes me happy and content.
So, since my youngest comes home from school next week (and he’s bringing a friend), I need to get the house clean and organized. What to do?…What to do?…What to do? No problem. I’ll craft quick and simple projects in between the mundane chores of cleaning.
These spoons were my first inspiration. They said “snowmen” to me. And who’s to argue with the voices in my head?! I only had seven, but I reasoned clearing out even a small space in my stash was worth the effort.
I cleaned them up and based the bowl of the spoon using a beige paint.
After applying a little bit of blush (cheeks) with my finger…,
…the rest of the face was painted using a toothpick. Easy peasy!
A scrap of my T-shirt yarn was wrapped and glued around the base of the handle for the hat.
They still looked a bit plain, so wrapped a mini garland around the length of the handle.
It took a little bit of time, but I was able to drill a hole in the end of each handle for a wire hanger.
