Mr. Burlap Snowman


I seriously needed a break from doing wedding stuff, 
and decided to get some Christmas crafting done for Amy's shop.  
After digging thru my stash, I came up with 3 graduated wreath forms, 3 colors of burlap and some hot glue.
They became Mr. Burlap Snowman.


I just cut strips of the cream burlap and wrapped it around each form, 
then used a couple more strips to connect them to each other with some handy dandy hot glue.


Cut a couple strips of the natural burlap to make a scarf and then a strip down the front for the dark brown burlap button rosettes.


Used some black posterboard to make a top hat form, then cut the dark brown burlap to fit.  After a quick spray of adhesive, I added the natural strip and rosette to finish it off.


He looks pretty spiffy on my door, even though I'm SOOOOO not ready for snow.


He'll be for sale up at Like Yesterday starting tomorrow.
I hope he finds a new home in a friendly neighborhood with a family who will treat him with respect.
Or some such.

All your missing is the eyes, nose and month. If you had that then it would be a full snowman.
