Snowman made from a light bulb. Here it is and Merry Christmas to you all!!! Hugs julie
Next I added a layer of glitter to his cap by spreading it with Mod Podge
And then sprinkling it with clear glass glitter. I used a black sharpie to make his eyes and then a white and red ( not shown Oops ) Stabillo pencil to make his checks .I blended them together in
Circular motion to make pink. A Stabillo pencil will work on all surfaces, even glass.
He is all glued together.
Next I glued his nose , base and cap on with E 6000.
I used a clear water bottle cap for his base and covered it and his nose with
White glass glitter. I used Mod Podge as the glue for the glitter.
I sewed a few fun findings and beads to the tip of the cap.
I picked some fun ribbon and sewed it on the rim of the cap.
Using black velvet I cut a flower shape for his collar.
I stitched the cap together with black thread. It is hard to see but the raw edge of the
felt was cut with pinking shears.
I used wool felt to make the cap,which is part rayon , part wool .
I buy this at Joann Fabrics by the yard.
To make a cone shaped hat pattern I just folded the edge of a piece of paper. I made sure the
base was the width I wanted. I can always trim the bottom base edge later to round it off.
For his nose I made a jelly roll from paper clay and then by pressing firmer on one end
while I rolled, I tapered it into a cone shape . When it is dry you can sand the rough edges .
For starters I sprayed a small clear light bulb with frosted glass spray paint.
