Let it snow!

So, I am officially on break from rotations!! Yay! I've been on break for a couple of weeks and I've been working like crazy on crafty projects for my friends and family. One thing that I have finished is my snowman plates! I think they are very cute (I got the idea at the Michael's store near me). They were fairly easy to make.

You need:

Charger plate(s)
SnowTek


Orange and pink paint

Buttons (2 for eyes, 3 for nose, and 3-4 for mouth)

Glue (I used the Gorilla Super Glue--AWESOME!!)

Ribbon

It's really easy. I used a sponge to apply the Snow-Tek to the charger plate.
I had to let these dry overnight. While waiting for that, I painted the buttons for the nose orange (to make it look like a carrot of course!)
After everything was dry, I glued on the buttons for the eyes, nose, and mouth. I painted two little rosy cheeks with the pink paint. I made a bow with the ribbon and glued the bow on the snowperson. This is what I ended up with.

So that's one project down, many more to go. I guess I better get busy! Until next time, adios!

  2. They ARE cute! I had fun today with ya'll! I used my glass cutter already. I just tested it on some scraps. It worked really well. I was looking for a bottle to cut, but couldn't find one. :(
    have a great weekend!

  3. Thanks you all! Today was fun--we should do it again! I figured I'd open a bottle of wine, drink it, then try to cut the bottle ;) We'll see how that works out...ha ha. Have a good weekend!
