Little Snowman

This was a quick little snowman craft. I used 2 glass vase bowls from the Dollar Tree. I put them inside an old sock of the hubbies. I put a battery powdered tea light in each bowl that I have a remote to turn them on with. I used another old sock to make the hat. Put some ribbon around the the neck part and glued on some eyes and buttons. Use a piece of felt for the nose. Total cost about $3

Wooden Christmas Tree

     I got inspiration for this project from Pinterest. 
     We had some scrap pieces of wood that I used. You could use pallet wood to this too. Painted it a pale green and then used a darker green chalk to add some shading to the look.
     I decided to do the letters using the wax paper method. It went fine until my printer decided to die. I did the remaining by tracing them using carbon paper. I outlined the letters with a sharpie and then painted them.
     I lightly sanded the letters and the edges of the boards. Applied some miniature Christmas snowflakes ornaments. Painted a wooden star silver and glued a miniature gold star to the center.
     Love how it turned out.
