Merry Christmas Snowman

This MDF snowman can be purchased on our website by clicking this link,, for $12. 

The supplies you will need for this are:
                                                   1. White paint
                                                   2. red paint
                                                   3. orange paint 
                                                   4. black paint
                                                   5. large, med., and a fine paint brush

1st paint the snowman white.  I used spray paint because it drys very quickly and with most colors it only takes one coat.  You can also use any craft paint, that you can purchase at your local Wal-Mart, Michael's, Hobby-Lobby, etc.

The 2nd step is to paint his hat, all this takes is black paint and a thick brush (after this dries you can add the red strip).

Then paint on his scarf, which is simple, the cutout if the snowman guides you to where his scarf should go, then paint two vertical strips on the left side as an extension of the scarf.  You really can't mess this up. If you feel like you have, just keep going and the finished product always turns out cute!

 Also apply the snow mans eyes in a very thick coat of white paint with an angle brush in swirl motion. If you would like to do something different with the eyes you can purchase wiggle eyes from a craft store or click this link wiggle eyes.  If you do this, you would skip the next step, if not, carry on!

The next step is to add black paint in the corner of the eye, the trace around the eye.  Make sure the white paint is dry first.  

For this step you will need an angle brush.  Take your angle brush and orange paint and slant it and make about 4 or 5 half circles to form the carrot nose.  You can outline this in black if you would like, but that is optional.

For this step you will want a polka dot brush or an angle brush, the polka dot brush is self-explanatory. As for the angle brush you will want to sit your brush on the desired spot and spin it, not hard, but still the polka dot brush is my pick because your circles will be more precise.  

After this is completes you can begin your lettering, from "Happy Holidays", Merry Christmas", Happy New Years" to whatever you would like on it.  I suggest finding a font you like on the internet then printing it out, so you can look at it then copy it.  One of my favorite is.. Merry Christmas Font
