I must admit - I have the worlds best hubby. He's really stuck by me with all of my crazy ideas this year to have a "Homemade Christmas!"
Today's post is 2 x 4 snowmen. I found them on Keeping it Simple last year, but by then it was too late to make them - but I KNEW we'd be making them this year!!
This project cost us a total of $1.04!! We had ALL supplies on hand and only had to buy the orange paint for the noses. Even the 2 x 4's were given to us: my mom and dad had new steps made and my hubby tore apart the old ones to use for projects.
Alright - wait....I guess they cost us closer to $4 - the cute scarf was actually a table cloth that I had found on clearance last year for $2 - down from $20 or $30. I had no clue what I was going to do with it - but couldn't pass up the price!
Of course, we changed things up a bit.
When hubby was constructing these, he screwed the 2 x 4's together rather than using the glue/staple method mentioned. We painted on the nose (we don't own a cricut, as the original instructions suggested using) and I didn't sew the thumbs on the gloves - tucking them in worked really well.
I can't wait for Christmas - and to see the surprise on the people's faces that will receive all of our gifts!
|Our whole gang - DONE!!|
