Visions of sugarplums!!

Hi Friends! Welcome to Day 1 of the Annual "Visions of Sugarplums" Blog Hop!
For the last few years the talented Lori Hairston of Chouxchoux Paper Art
has been hosting a super fun blog hop with several other bloggers showcasing anything from Holiday Recipes to Greeting Cards and more for the Christmas holiday, with LOADS of prizes to win.


Here is my project for Day 1! I just love to make smowmen and I thought these guys would be a fun decoration! I found some vintage molds on Etsy and they were 14.00 for 7 of them.
You will need smooth styrofoam balls, paint for the eyes and mouth, and clay for the nose! They are easy and fun to make!! Once they were done I sprayed glue all over the snowmen and used some rock glitter !

Omgosh, these are SO, SO sweet and adorable, Char! And I'm totally smiling at that fact that I just recently scored a bunch of vintage jello molds at my local thrift store.... and made a shabby snowman to fit in one! Haha! We are on the same wave length, my friend! LOVE your little guys! Beautiful embellishments and details on them. I am grinning from ear to ear!
