Throwback Thursday - Simple Snowman Craft

Vintage, Paint and more... snowman made from dollar tree votives and pet supplies

With Christmas only a week away I thought you might like to see a very quick, simple, and budget friendly little craft that I did last year.  

Actually, this was done on the spur of the moment one afternoon when I had two of my granddaughters. It was during Christmas vacation, cold, icy and boredom had set in so I got some supplies out for them to play with.  Unfortunately I have no before pictures.

This little guy is totally made from Dollar Tree finds.  His body is two fish bowl type votive holders, his hat and buttons were found in the pet section and the two button eyes and ribbon scarf I had on hand.  So the cost was minimal.  The details of how they put him together can be found here.

The girls had a blast putting him together and I think his cuteness factor is awesome. So think you may need a "Frosty" at your house this year?  

Love to hear from you - just leave a comment below.  I will be answering them through email. 

Until next time enjoy creating something you love.

I will be joining the parties listed on the Where I Party page.  Hop on over and visit a few - I'm sure you'll find lots of inspiration and creativeness.
