The Peddlers Mall has kept me pretty busy lately with the holidays coming up so fast. My hand made crafts are already selling out! I couldn't be more happier! Just knowing that people really like the little things I make is an awesome feeling!
Here is the latest little snowman crafts I have made. Snowman wooden spoon magnets. I priced these little primitive cuties for only .99 cents each so that it will be a cheap gift for anyone to pickup.
These started out as little wooden spoons that I had won off from an eBay auction. I got a pack of like 48 or so for $7.00, since it was an open package. Great deal! Still plenty enough for me to use.
They are approximately 3 5/8" tall so they will make for some cute little snowman magnets! Not sure where these were bought from originally but I'd guess WalMart has some similiar.
First, I laid them all out on some wax paper so that my counters will stay somewhat clean. Then I gave them a quick coat of off white craft paint. (If it had been warmer outside, I would have simply spray painted them but it was like 20* outside!)
|Just dab on a glob of orange and pull your paintbrush straight down. That's it for the noses! Simple.|
And above you can see that I used some dark orange to paint on little skinny noses. These are popular on the primitive themed snowmen.
And next I free handed on some little cute faces.
|Just use your imagination when painting on the faces. Give each a different look by simply doing the eyebrows differently or the mouths.|
I like the little X's for mouths for some reason, lol.
Next, I tied on little bits of pieces of homespun fabric in all different colors to make these little snowmen a scarf. I had bunches of these leftover from various other crafts and I always save the little scraps for things like this.
And then it was time to add the little magnet on the back. I got this package of 20 magnets at the local Dollar Mart for only $1.00 called Magnetic Buttons. Sadly last month that store closed though.
|20 magnetic buttons for only $1.00 from the Dollar Mart.|
These are small but strong enough to hold up these little wooden spoon snowman magnets.
|Here you can see instead of all having black buttons of coal down the body, I wrote a few words such as "love and friends." It just adds a bit more cuteness I think and gives each it's own personality.|
|Look close and you can see the little strips of homespun fabric as scarfs. I just tied a simple knot in them around the neck area.|
|I was going to add little jingle bells to the scarves but I couldn't find any in my craft supplies small enough.|
So here you have it, my Snowman Wooden Spoon Magnets made out of plain wooden sticks, similar to ice cream spoons, for only $ .99 in my Peddlers Mall Booth #555.
