Snowman Ornaments and a Santa Pin

Hello and welcome to the Christmas in July blog hop! I am excited to be here with you and I hope you enjoy the items I have created today!

Snowman Collages
4" x 4" canvas panels
Tombow markers in assorted colors
white gel pen
stamped images and sentiments
white paint
blue paint
drill and wire

For these two collages, I stamped Unity and Paper Smooches snowmen onto white card stock and colored with Tombow markers and a white gel pen then fussy cut them out and set aside.

Paint the background with blue, add white paint if it is too dark covering the whole canvas panel. then paint in a white snowbank for the snowman to sit in and splatter white paint over the background to create snow. Glue down the images and sentiment and drill holes for the wire hanger.

Melted snowman
white polymer clay
orange sharpie
scrap of fabric
black paint
dotting tool

First, warm a pea-sized piece of clay between your hands and form into a ball, set aside, warm a slightly larger piece of clay and then smoosh it into a flat. Set the ball onto the flat disc and give it a small twist to help adhere it to the disc. Color one end of the toothpick and break off, insert into the round portion of the snowman. Bake the clay as directed on the package. Dot the eyes and buttons on the snowman and add the scarf. 

Mitten Snowman Ornament
small mitten*
wood disc
scrap of fabric
hot glue and glue gun
greenery and flower centers
orange sharpie
black paint
dotting tool

First of all, stuff the mitten lightly, set aside. Paint the toothpick with the orange sharpie and break off, drill a hole for toothpick nose then using Aleene's Tacky Glue insert nose. Glue head into mitten opening with hot glue then tie a scrap of fabric around the neck of the snowman. Using the hot glue gun, the greenery and flower centers, glue under the mitten thumb so the snowman is holding the greenery. If your mitten needs a hanger, you can use embroidery floss to attach a matching hanger. 

*if you find any mittens similar to this, please let me know, I have them for quite a while and can't find any more of them. They could be made from felt also. 

Santa Pin
400 lb watercolor paper
pin back
Aleene's tacky glue
Diamond Glaze 
black sharpie

Draw out a Santa face, then cut out and use the template on the watercolor paper. Trace the template of Santa with a sharpie, wet the paper and cut out the Santa. Using the watercolors, paint your Santa, set aside to dry. When dry, apply the diamond glaze to all sides of the Santa and let dry, attach the pin back.

Hope you had fun looking at my snowman and Santa designs, and share what you make using my ideas!
