Snowman Family

Happy Monday Everyone!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with your family and friends–and had time to eat and hug on those you love!

While my family was here- my mom and sister joined me in my craft room to play a little!

I had seen this cute tutorial on a diorama-on childmadetutorials using a glove to make snowmen...and I wanted to give it a try!

I took a frame I picked up at the Dollar Tree that was made like a shadow box- it doesn’t say ‘shadow box’ on the frame…but you can tell by the depth of the frame, that it can be used as a shadow box frame.

 

I then took gloves also from the Dollar Tree and cut across the bottom of the fingers (leaving them attached) since there are only 4 in our family. ย I used the color gloves for hats by tying the top of the finger tips with a string and snipping the finger of the glove short.

And then I went to town- decorating! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I used googly eyes and Bling Zots to adhere– ribbon and fabric to make scarves, pom-poms and embroidery thread to make earmuffs for Mr. Pink- paper for carrot noses and a pipe, adhesive pears and rhinestones and DCWV glittery Winter paper.

I then used the Cherry Limeade cartridge with my gypsy (to weld the letters) to cut out our names in pink vinyl! ย Did you know it is SUPER easy to transfer vinyl to glass?

Well- we had SO much fun working on my snowman family–that we decided to make one for my parents and my sister too!

My dad has a cigar and my mom has ‘heart’ lips and a pearl necklace.

We thought it would be fun to do a primitive version with no eyes- a fancy scarf, 3d snowflakes and a primitive heart brad for my sister. ย This frame did not come from the dollar tree, it was one we re-did that used to be in my kitchen ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you are inspired to make your own Snowman Family- and I’d love to see it if you decide to make one!!

Have a great week everyone!
