DEscriptION

  1. Set up your work area being sure to protect nearby items from spray mist. You really want to spray outside if at all possible. (Spray mist really travels.)
  2. Brush the clay pot white keeping the two-inch rim covered with painter's tape.
  3. Following application directions on the paint can, paint the wooden stars with yellow paint.
  4. Paint the wooden Christmas tree orange. If you don't want to use spray paint, brush on a different color.
  5. Paint the two balls black for the eyes.
  6. Once everything is dry, glue on the black hat and apply the straw ribbon.
  7. Glue one the eyes, nose and draw on a smile with the black marker then glue stars onto the ends of his smile.
  8. Glue on coordinating fleece as a scarf. Glue the pine springs and button onto the middle of the fleece.
  9. Dab a bit of white paint onto the eyes and nose for a truly "frosty" effect.
