Salt Shaker Snow Lady

Welcome to DAY THREE! We all love snowmen (well, I don't like REAL ones because I hate winter BUT, fake ones are just fine!) so here are some creative takes on snowmen . . . enjoy!


Welcome to the third annual 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!

Stop by every day from December first through the twelfth for new ideas you can use to make your season brighter!

Meet Your Hosts

They have all been busy as Elves creating, decorating, cooking and crafting tons of new ideas for you to try this holiday season!

All you need for this cute snowman project is a salt/pepper shaker, a wooden or foam bead/ball and assorted trims.
 You can choose to fill the shaker with 'snow' or beads but this one was pretty cloudy so I decided to brush Mod Podge on in random spots and roll in ultra-fine glitter.
 For the head, I used a foam ball. Even though it was white already, I brushed it with Mod Podge and rolled in the glitter as well.
 I have a bunch of these key 'things' so that's what I used to make the tag.  I printed the words on paper, glued on and used a sanding block to remove excess paper.
 Since this snow lady likes her 'bling', I added some to the tag.
 More bling from a piece of an old necklace and some decorative yarn/ribbon for a feather-like boa help to complete her look.
 For her hat, a band of sparkly rhinestones and an old post earring dressed it up!  Bead were glued in for the eyes and a spray painted toothpick was used for her nose.
 These are addicting and so fun to make.  They're also a great way to use up those 'odds and ends' of jewelry and trims you might have!
