You see, this will be the third Christmas Grahm and I have spent together as Mr. and Mrs. Roach but the first we've (I've) gotten to decorate for. The last two Decembers we've been in the middle of moving (from Oklahoma to San Antonio in 2011 and into our first house last year). Cardboard boxes were about the only thing we had to get us in the holiday spirits. Lame, party of two.
Now our house is finally Christmas ready. Glitter is everywhere. Snowmen are aplenty. We even have our first tree! Brace yourselves for a whirlwind of craft projects, my friends, I just couldn't help myself.
3 wreath forms, different sizes
6-10 Pipe Cleaners
Decorative Accessories (scarf or bells)
First, I assembled my snowman's curvaceous bodwod. Take a pipe cleaner and loop it through the back of the first wreath form. This is holding the snowman's noggin on his body, so make sure it's secure. And obviously, hide those pipe cleaners.
Loop the pipe cleaner through the back of the next wreath form and tightly secure them together. I added a few pipe cleaners just for extra measure. (This will also ensure that the snowman's body parts aren't lopsided.)
Once all the wreath forms are attached, it'll look something like this.
I then took a plastic top hat that I found at a party store and cut that sucker in half.
I added a sparkly ribbon to the hat before hot glueing it to the snowman's head, because obviously glitter makes everything better.
And because I wanted my snowman to look dapper, I added a few accessories to jazz him up. The bells are intended to be a doorhanger that I got from Michael's, but I thought they fit perfectly. I then added one of my scarves.
And voila! Frosty is the perfect addition to our closet door.
As always, thank you for the inspiration, Pinterest!
