Snowman wood block

Finally! I got out the wood chunks, paints and mod podge. :) Time to make a wooden snowman. Start with a simple chunk of wood; this is a piece of 2x4 from the hubs leftovers bin; and sand or file the rough edges away and smooth it out a bit. You don't want any splinters or rough edges. Then paint the whole thing white. I used folk art wicker white acrylic paint applied with a foam brush.

Once the paint is dry, you can add another coat if you like, or you can sand the edges a bit to weather your snowman a little. This is when you add the face. You can hand draw it or, as I did, use a stamp image. I used this 4 inch snowman face by Peachy Keen Stamps. After you finish the face, apply a coat or two (I only used one) of Mod Podge. I like the matte finish, but you can use the glossy as well. I found this super cute bottle cozee set and knew right away how I wanted to use it. And not on a bottle of wine or cider either!

Ta-da! I think he turned out positively adorable. And so easy to do!!!! I hope you'll give this a try and make your own darling snowman wood block decoration. I'm think next year perhaps I'll go super huge and make one for the front porch....yeah?!

All cozy. :)

  4. This is adorable! You know you have a special stamp when it can make a chunk of wood look this cute ;) The hat a scarf were a special find...they look cute enough to wear...I would! Great job and the Mod Podge didn't make the colors run either.

  5.' GOODNESS! He is too, too cute...even undressed! He is absolutely worthy of that coveted front-porch spot! (By the way, I see the Copic, but what are the other markers you used?)

    1. Thank you! I used only copics on this .... Forgot to include the black ink pad I used to stamp the face though. Tuxedo Black, Memento ink. :)
