Welcome to my final post with My Favorite Things this month, the Release Rewind. If you haven't already, all the gorgeous products I have been using this month are available for purchase in the store.
I just had to use Happy Heart Snowman one more time! Mom if you are reading this, skip the next sentence or two, ok? :) My mom loves snowmen. Especially if they don't have feet. This guy is perfect. So I wanted to make her a little piece of artwork she could leave up in the house during the winter months.
Its a wood plaque that measures 5"x5." I covered it with wood veneer paper that was painted. I started by trimming all my pieces 1" wide and then randomly cut each strip lengthwise to make it look like palette wood. First white paint was applied. Then brown along the edges. While the brown paint was still wet, I went over it again with a small amount of white paint. It gives this awesome distressed look.
Once the painted strips of wood veneer were dry, I adhered them to the plaque (use some good adhesive). Some small, flat gems were painted with black paint and I adhered those in random places to look like nails.
The small stars are drop outs from Peek a Boo Stars Die-namics. I love the way they turned out when I randomly placed them on the wood.
And there you have it. Wow. Its been an amazing past week! Thank you for all the sweet comments! And a HUGE thank you to Kim, Joanne, and Jody at My Favorite Things for having me join them this month! It was a blast! Their product is beautiful and high quality and well, I just cannot say enough good things about all of it!
