Scrappy Snowmen

December 12, 2011

There was a flurry of activity and colorful "snow" all over our house this past weekend: scrappy, polka-dotted snowmen! Aren't they cute? It all started with the discovery of the "feathers" from last year's recycled turkey. Those feathers (rolled up magazine pages) turned out to be the inspiration for several weekend crafting projects. Re-cycled, re-purposed, and used all over again in a new ways. Who knew that turkey feathers could be shredded up to create scarves, hats, and rainbow snow?

Here's how we made our scrappy snowmen cards:

1) Draw the outline of a snowman (basically three circles and some stick arms)
2) Fill in the bodies with dots of white acrylic paint
3) Accent with magazine scraps (hats, scarves, snow, whatever inspires you!) and use glue stick to adhere to card
4) Spend a lot of time sweeping up scraps from all sorts of weird nooks and crannies, sing and dance to the soundtrack of the newest Muppet movie, and don't let the holiday mail deadlines stress you out...snowmen seem perfect for winter greetings which could arrive anytime in the winter, right?
