You will need:
• Wood. Any size you wish! The snowmen in the photographs are 4×6 cut to 6 inches in length and 4×6 cut to 8.5 inches long (The slight difference creates the Mr. & Mrs. Snowman sizes)
• White paint (Spray paint is more fun)
• Paint brush
• Black marker or fun googly eyes
• Glue (Pro-tip: Decopage doubles as a sealer!)
• Glitter. There are different types, try the larger iridescent style for a robust effect.
• Sandpaper
• Fabric, of course!

What to do:
• Begin by sanding the wood smooth
• Now paint until you get a solid white finish
• Allow to dry!
• I recommend using a bit more fabric than shown in the photos, wrapping it around a few times for a fluffy effect.
• Remove scarf and paint entire board with glue, followed by a dusting of glitter to simulate shining snow.
• Again, allow to dry completely.
• Once you know where your scarf will be placed, you are free to add the eyes! You may create any style you please. I would like to see this done with googly eyes!

It is just that simple! Now you are well on your way to creating a warm winter vibe in your home this year!
