I have been meaning to post my little "mini makeover" that I performed on this cute little snowman. I have had this little guy for at least 12 years...every winter/Christmas he proudly sits on my front porch. This year when I pulled him out, I decided he had seen better days and deserved a little makeover! This is his "before" shot:
The first thing I did was remove everything and gave him a good washing...the hose took off quite a few years worth of dirt.
I repainted his little sign and cut out new letters with my Silhouette. I purchased a small piece of fleece and made him a well needed new scarf. You don't see the bird's nest in the before picture, but it was there...it too was half full of dirt/dust, so I took it off and was able to salvage it without buying new. I did splurge for some new birds however!
I used the old greenery, but add a new pinecone garland that I found at Michaels. Last but not least, I purchased some styrofoam balls from the dollar store, used a little glue and glitter to make him a little pile of snow balls!
Here's how he looks now:
And of course he looks even cuter at night:
I have a super "yummy" snack to share with you that I made for the first time yesterday...delish! Check back tomorrow! Till then...
There's a skinny girl who lives inside of me that's screaming to get out...I can usually shut her up with cookies!
