Hi everyone! Just getting back in the blog post swing today with a quick project for you! My hubs is doing well with his new hip, so I am trying to get some crafty time in again when I can.
I had these guys finished before he actually had surgery in preparation for a couple of upcoming vendor/craft fairs that I will be working in December. I found these adorable snowmen last year on Pinterest, and they were a big hit with the kids at school. They will make fantastic stocking stuffers too!
I cut the scalloped circles on my Cricut at 1.75 inches on different papers including this great candy cane striped B&T Duo from the new Sparkle and Shine Papers in the new Holidays From the Heart Gift Guide from Close to My Heart. Then I used a punch to make 1.25 inch circles out of my White Daisy CS. The snowman parts are stamped with a retired CTMH My Acrylix called All Decked Out, but they are pretty easy to dress up on your own too. A couple of big glue dots hold the peppermint candy to the paper. Slide your snowmen into pretzel bags and that is it! One little tip for building your snowmen....be sure to slide all three pieces in so they are touching before you slide them down to the bottom of the clear bag...otherwise your snowmen could end up with their parts upside down on the way in! Also, you have to get the kind of candies that are wrapped in a round wrapper, not the brand name kind in a sealed square wrapper. :)
Now I have an army of snowmen ready to go!
Hope you like this super-easy winter project!
