Blog Inspired Star Snowman

I really enjoyed Debra's Common Ground posts at Leola's.


I was inspired to make my own star snowman.


I cut out my star snowman from Warm and Natural cotton batting and blanket stitched it around the outside with crochet thread.


I stuffed my snowman with some loose polyester fiberfill. I tea stained my snowman a little and also stiffened the snowman body with some water diluted Mod Podge.



I glued on an orange felt nose and two black seed beads with tacky glue.



Two whole cloves are the buttons...


And tinsel garland was glued around his neck.

I think I might make myself a few more snowmen.

  5. You are so crafty! He's very cute. I didn't know that you could use Mod Podge to stiffen - learn something new every day.

  15. Oh man, Carleen!!! I have just spent three hours (okay, maybe two!) looking at all your fun things on your blog!!! I think we could be best friends!!! I love your garden, your house and all your vintage things!!! I have to get to bed, but would love to chat more, but I do have one quick question, if you might be able to email me back, but when you set out your teapots and galvanized pails, etc., out in the garden and have flowers in them, do you put holes in the bottoms for drainage? I would love to know. You also have a real gift for arranging these things! And I feel your pain about some of the flowers not returning in full force - like your monarda. Mine didn't come back at all this year - very sad!!! (I live in Michigan) I have an old sewing machine that I am ready to put out in my garden, because we just don't have room for it in the house - but can't decide if I want to paint it white or not - ???

    Anyway, like I said, I could chat with you for a long time I think...... but love your blog, just wish there were more hours in the day!

    Hugs from Michigan - Diane (Vruwink) Carlson

  17. Awww...sooo sweet! Looks like a great "friend" gift to me! I am always trying to think of the one thing that I can make each year to pass out to my friends, teachers, mail lady...etc. I think I found mine yesterday :)
