You may remember back in August when we FINALLY got the opportunity to try out a spray paint project when we made the monthly photo frames for Brielle’s Pinwheel birthday party.
It was our first time using this material and we of course had a bit of a learning curve. I’m happy to report that I got another chance to play around with this fun material when I received a Krylon Mini Mystery Box!
What’s that, you ask? It’s a box of random materials to which I could be creative and make a project! In my box I received: 2 Cans of Kyrlon Short Cuts (aka the cutest little cans of spray paint you ever did see!), 1 Walnut Hollow Mini Crate, 2 White Bandanas, 1 piece of burlap and an assortment of buttons.
With a little girl at home who’s room includes an accent of pink, my first thought was to decorate something for her room. But upon further review with the lack of space I had to put anything in there, I decided to brainstorm some more. That’s when it hit me: I need more winter holiday décor! So while most blogs are showing off their awesome pumpkin décor, I’m breaking the mold and showing off my first winter holiday creations: a wood crate snowman!
First step was to paint the main surfaces. Besides the mini crate, I also covered an old tin I got YEARS ago to make the snowman’s head.
I covered both pieces with the blue Short Cuts paint and allowed to dry. I was so impressed with the coverage on just a few light coats. In fact I might just have to buy some of those ugly dollar store tins and spray them for a full on cute makeover!
After the pieces were thoroughly dried, I glued in a piece of scrapbook paper inside the crate, just for a little texture and design.
After painting the buttons black, I assembled all my parts, which also include a burlap scarf. Now please forgive the basic beauty shot of the project seen here but, as you may realize, my winter décor items are still packed away. Stay tuned as I’m sure you’ll see this guy decked out in a winter vignette in a future winter themed post I’m sure!
