As I was planning for 2014, I came across these sweet, Vintage Snowmen by Beth Watson. Last year, I featured a Valentine’s Day version of these snowmen, and thought you might like to see the original design, too. I know you’re creative, and you’d put your own spin on these, right? For example, at the moment I’m thinking about decorating a few mason jars with these cuties.
For the original Vintage Snowmen, Beth skipped the heart motifs. She perched one snowman head on a mini set of drawers, which she covered in pages torn from a dictionary (look closely and you can see she chose a page about “snow”.) Then, Beth added rub-ons with winter sayings to both the drawers and the glass jar. Instead of red pompoms, she filled the containers with silver pompoms to look like snowballs.
While the basic instructions are the same, you can change these up with the embellishments. Accent with blue or purple or pink. Use mini, knit hats and stocking caps. Fill the jars with candy. Use the supplies that you have on hand. How would you change up these Vintage Snowmen? You can use the Vintage, Valentine’s Day Snowmen tutorial as a starting point.
As I’m working on the 2014 blog calendar, let me know if there’s something you want me to include. Lots of Christmas crafts? More home décor? Kids projects? Or?? I’d love to hear about what you’d like to see on Crafts ‘n Coffee this year.
Wait till you see tomorrow’s special guest! Any guesses?
