SNOWMEN CRAFTS Plus HOW TO DRAW SNOWFLAKES


I am going to post a few thread spindles and jars that I have painted snowmen on.

I just can't help it when it comes to snowmen, I just want to paint them on everything!

These are the plain, ole' wooden thread spindles that you are seeing about now.
 They are cute to just tuck here and there as are, but I thought they may be a bit cuter with a little chubby snowman on them!

I used the FOLKART brand of craft paint from Walmart.

And I just free handed on some matching snowmen.  This way in case someone wants to use them as a matching pair.

And for the snowflakes, they were really easy. Just draw you some straight lines like this below:
And just dab on dots for the tips!

Here's how mine came out, but sorry a bit blurry:
 And here they are again all done:


And that was just about all to them.

And then I had an old bottle and a white little jar sitting around.
I was in such a rush to start painting, I had already done a the other side of the bottle before I remembered the b4 pic.
And the other side of the jar was plain white.

As you see, when I start one type of snowman, I tend to put the same one on a few items. Not sure why, it's just how I do it.  And I'm always thinking maybe someone wants a few items in set, who knows?

Here's another pic of them:

And yesterday I had a request for Santa items.  So I will be making a few of them in the upcoming weeks!
Not sure why, but I just tend to get stuck on Snowmen!! lol
So please check back soon!

See ya'll next time,

DIY: Vintage Halloween Labels

Halloween Labels

I know it's not close to time yet but here's a Halloween post.
Or if you buy other themed labels, leave them out all year.

For this post, I ordered some sticky Halloween themed labels from eBay, (because I didn’t feel like going out and buying the sticker paper & buying images on Etsy at the moment.)
Which has awesome images btw, if you've never thought of that!

I made a lil box of things with labels to go in my Peddlers Mall booth as well. Here they are after I used what I needed, I packaged the left over labels up for sale in my booth also. 

So people can put them on what they want, if they don’t like my pre-made items.
As you see, they are just basically pre-made stickers with cute Halloween themes. 
That’s it. Ready to stick. 
Just find an object to put them on. 

Here’s some more pics of how I used them below on an old medicine bottle, can of beans and a can of tuna. I just took off the original labels and stuck them right on.
 
And here’s a little display I made on the front porch. Note the cute little barn wood cabinet that my wonderful hubby Greg made! Gotta love a crafty man! :-)


I also sell them in my Booth#555.
I love these labels. 
So simple but they add a unique look for my decorations. 

Happy Crafting Ya'll!
