2x4 Snowman Family

 How cute is this wood block snowmen family? I made them yesterday on a whim, and the best part is that  I already had everything on hand. I got my idea from Crafty chic mommy, then gave it my own special touch.

How great would these be for gifts?
 Supplies needed:
  • 2x4s or 2x6s
  • paint stick or thin wood
  • sandpaper
  • white and orange paint, brown ink or paint
  • buttons
  • glue- I used my handy dandy hot glue gun
  • ribbon for scarf
  •  wood or something for hat
 To make these is pretty self explanatory. Cut wood, sand, paint white. I then inked the edges brown for a  more rustic look. Glue body together.

Then glue on your cutie accessories. The nose is a cut up paint stick.
 For the hats I used baseball bat end discards that I got from the Louisville Slugger Museum for FREE. But not everyone lives in good ol' Louisville. So you could use the end part of your paint-stick (where it is curved), smaller pieces of wood, or fabric to make your hat or go with out. 
Get creative and have fun!
