Please scroll all the way to the bottom of this post if you would like to have a printout of the instructions.
Most of the things used for this snowman was purchased from the Dollar Tree. I had gotten the buttons at Walmart but you can easily do this whole craft with DT items.
Supplies for splatter screen snowman
- Three Splatter Screens with handles (Dollar Tree)
- White spray paint (Walmart)
- Foam board for hat (Dollar Tree)
- Buttons (Walmart)
- Nose (Orange burlap leaf from Dollar Tree)
- Snowflake (Dollar Tree)
- Board (I used wood I had on hand)
- Scarf and Hat Trim (Old sweater I never wear)
- Floral wire (Dollar Tree)
- Hot Glue
When I saw this snowman craft from another blogger, I ran to my nearest Dollar Tree and bought all of the Splatter Screens that they had in stock, I bet they thought I was crazy ha!
The snowflake is felt stickers in a package of 12.
I took two of the splatter screens and bent the handles to secure them to the boards. I used glue but you can actually screw them in to be more secure.
Attached all of the splatter screens together with floral wire but make sure to put the handle facing down for the one on top. This way the top splatter screen is not bending backwards because of the weight.
Here is the back side view to show you want it looks like.
Once everything is attached and secure, I spray painted it twice (letting it dry before applying second coat).
Once the paint is dry, I hot glued the buttons and burlap nose on. I took the foam board and cute 2 pieces to look like the hat.
The reason for 2 pieces was because I wanted the splatter screen to go in between the foam board at the bottom. I hot glued the top part of the foam boards together but not the bottom below the red trim.
I just guessed at the size of the hat when I was making but it worked out great. The actual measurements are 9.25″ wide at base, 6″ wide top part and 8″ height (from top to bottom).
I then cute up my red sweater to make a scarf and the trim (attached with hot glue) for his hat.
