Sweetheart Snowgirl


















My handmade projects seem to be almost non-existent lately! I wanted to show you a special item I made for a friend, just so you know I haven't stopped crafting altogether. This is a Paper Mache Snowman , make that a Snowgirl. I always seem to forget to take the pictures until they are almost done. In the picture below she has been painted and glittered and is now drying.






Cute, but plain. She needs accessories!
                                   
I then added a Valentine Bouquet of faux flowers and hearts, a ribbon scarf and fuzzy hat. The buttons are actually old earrings that I removed from their clips. A little paper ribbon for a belt and she is ready for her Valentine debut.










Linking with Delightfully Inspiring Thursday

  8. Thank you everyone! My friend wanted something to bridge the seasons until after Valentine's Day, so I decided a Valentine themed snowgirl was just the thing! We usually have snow here until the end of March or later,so unless Easter comes early we don't force spring to arrive until she's ready! Even though Spring is officially only 40 some days away, we may not see it until the middle of April.
    Maybe next year I will get around to making a few snowgirls for my Etsy shop!
