Snowy Man


Hello!  It's a "Monday Morning Challenge" on Thursday with
BELLA BLVD
www.bellablvd.typepad.com

This week a few of the Design Team were asked to craft holiday decor
and being that I love snowmen, I decided one a paper mache ornament!

You can try any size or shape of plain paper mache ornament for a Snowy Man such as this.

  For mine, I chose a 6" paper mache egg. First, I cut 10-12 1" wide strips
 (use a smaller width for smaller shapes) from a sheet of patterned paper;
trim strips down to fit from top to bottom of the ornament.

 Using Mod Podge and a sponge brush, apply a thin coat to a small section of the
 ornament and then press paper strips into place. Once all of the strips have been adhered,
apply a thin coat of Mod Podge over the entire piece. Once that has dried, cover with iridescent glitter.
Embellish with a paper cone hat, crochet heart cheeks and wooden eyes and nose.  

To create the cone hat, cut a piece of patterned paper to 5.25" X 11"; trim into a semi-circle
(as shown in photo) and then roll into shape.
