Those are all "my kids" and my brother's "kids". . . that's a lot. :) I'll have to get a bigger board when my little brother has some.
*unfinished wood plaque-thingy (Hobby Lobby)
*packages of unfinished wooden balls (Hobby Lobby) in 2 sizes. They have one flat end which worked perfectly for being able to glue it to the plaque, and to glue a hat to the top.
*colored felt (Hobby Lobby)
*stiff black felt for the hat bases (HL)
*tiny pom-poms (HL)
*thick dowel rod (HL)
*spray glitter--clear with silver sparkles (HL)
*black and white spray paint
*black and orange acrylic craft paint
*hot glue gun
*Spray paint plaque and wooden balls white. Spray all over with spray-glitter--kind of lightly since you'll add more later. If you spray the wooden balls before it's all assembled, you can get more even coverage.
*Cut dowel rod into 1" pieces or so (that was Rick's job in the garage) and spray paint black.
*Cut stiff black felt into circles.
*Use wood glue to glue wooden balls together. The scarves will cover up excess glue.
*Cut strips of felt, tie around the snowmen, use hot glue dots to hold in place if needed.
*Attach pom-poms with hot glue.
*Hot-glue the hat bases to the dowel pieces. Hot-glue the hats on the snowmen.
*Use the pointy end of a paintbrush to add eyes and mouths with black acrylic paint. Use toothpick to add carrot-nose with orange paint.
*Hot-glue snowmen to plaque-base.
*Spray on more glitter!!!
