I made this guy last fall. I drew a pattern on paper, traced it on the pallet wood, and cut it out.
Here's a close-up:
After sanding the pallets, I screwed a piece of wood across the back to hold it together. The hat was painted and a thin piece of wood was attached with Liquid Nails for the brim and more stability. The rest of the snowman was painted and distressed with my palm sander.
The final touches: painting a face and adding a red burlap scarf. The snowman was done!
I'm keeping him on my side porch, where he's not exposed to the weather. The red burlap might 'bleed' and I don't want to re-paint! I plan to put a piece of burlap outside for a test. If it 'bleeds' I'll have to find a new scarf. I'll let you know what happens.
I'm so glad you stopped by. Please be sure to share, pin, follow, etc. I love having new friends at the Cottage!
