I didn’t need much for this fun project, just a few easy tools and supplies! The kind men in the HD lumber department assisted me in cutting the wood required for this DIY!
Once assembled, I used a few paint and and stain supplies to bring my character to life. Since I love to decorate with neutrals and antiques, the obvious choice was to create a vintage snowman, perfect for Our Vintage Nest! I love the colors and names of these paints from Americana!
I used corner braces to adorn the corners of the snowman and used an oil-based Sharpie marker (in metallic gold) for a vintage touch. I absolutely love the way the Minwax Classic Gray stain took to this pine wood. The grain details are my favorite! They just stocked the front shelves with Christmas decorations at my local store, so I was able to grab a few faux greens to make it look even more festive!
Our new home is still in the finishing stages, so I brought my completed project over to stage it in a few of my favorite places. The gray stain and stacked stone are a perfect match, don’t you think? :) I used some left over stain cloth to adorn the top of the hat brim… Layers make everything better!
Please join us in making this seasonal character door hanger! I’d love to see what you come up with! Click the link below to register for a Do-It-Herself Workshop at http://workshops.homedepot.com
