Let's Get Crafty - With A Snowman @SocialInsiders #SocialSummer
Being a Social Insider I am participating in the Social Insiders Summer Blogging Challenge. One of the challenges was "Let's Get Crafty". Pinterest has lots of crafts projects that I would like to try, although the craft I made is one that a 4-H leader told me about.
Since the holidays are coming up (yes, sooner than you think), here is a neat snowman that will brighten your day! It's made of 4 regular soup cans, a small black plastic plate, an empty frosting container with the lid, a couple of twigs, white paint, black paint, orange paint, a piece of cloth, white duct tape, glue and a couple of decorations to decorate your snowman's arms.
All you do is paint the soup cans white and let dry. Then paint a face on one of the cans, however you like. For the "carrot" nose I used orange paint and used black paint to draw the eyes, eyebrows, and black dots for the mouth. I also painted a snowflake in each of the eyes after the black paint had dried. To make some rosy cheeks, I lightly dabbed a spot with some orange paint.
Last of all, I decorated the snowman with a piece of cloth for the scarf, hung a little broom on his twig arm, and attached a cute little bird. I'm not a crafty person, but making this snowman is so easy that even I can do it!
