SNOWMAN LIDS


Hey ya'll,
Here's a super easy snowman lid I made last year and think I forgot to share. I had been seeing these pop up all over Pinterest and I really wanted to try a few on my own. I just looked at them and tried to keep the same basic features. 

This is a great way to use up any bent, dented or extra cooking lids you may have sitting around.
Mine comes from boxes of them I buy at auctions.
I got all these plus the coffee pot and pan for only $8.00 one night!!!

The one I painted here, before, it was just a regular, aluminum style cooking lid in silver.
The first thing I did was to clean it good, let it dry then spray paint it in an Almond base color. I used the Rustoleum brand.

Just ignore my clothespins, I still have to paint tons of them!
Then after it dried for a few hours, I started with the basic face using a permanent marker.
Here are the eyes.

A mouth and a few more features.

Then I came back in with paint and did the nose in Cinnamon orange and the eyes in a baby blue.
I also sponged on some "snow" to the nose after the orange dried. 

 And don't forget to add some rosey cheeks. I used the dry brush technique and just kept adding more till it looked like enough for me.

And to finish it all off, it's hard to see, but I used a can of white spray paint and sprinkled white dots all over everything to give him a snowy look.



 Then to finish him off, I took some pieces of fabric and a jingle bell and hot glued them to the side.

On the back I used some E-6000 glue and a sawtooth hanger in case someone wants to hang him up.
I priced him for $5.99 in my craft booth. 


And here's another one I've been working on.

Here's one way I display some regular lids from time to time that I have for sell.

Happy Crafting ya'll,
