Sparkly Snowman from Repurposed Pumpkins
I had several uncut pumpkins on my porch, so I decided to use them to make a snowman. I decided on the Rust-Oleum Chalked Spray paint because it would give the flat look of rolled snow. I stacked the pumpkins and sprayed a generous coat of the white. Waited one hour for drying.
While that was drying, I made the hat and nose. The hat is a plastic coffee lid with a small clay pot. I hot glued them together and let it sit for about 5 minutes. Then using the black flat, I brush painted the hat. I did two quick coats and then used fine glitter to coat the piece.
The nose was a wine cork that I sprayed with the orange. I rolled it with my finger to get both sides. I then sprinkled fine glitter to make it sparkle.
Back to the snowman, I used the black flat for eyes, adding hot glued googly eyes after they dryed. The hat was placed on and the nose wedged with a paper clip opened up. A black smile completed the face.
The arms are a wire hanger unwrapped and placed like arms. I wrapped the arms in golden brown pipe cleaners. A red scarf covered the hanger and provided the final touch.
I enjoyed making this and look forward to our next challenge.
