  • Folk Art® Metallic Acrylic Paint: Aquamarine (using what I have on hand)
  • 1 Skein – DMC White Floss (using yarn from my stash)

 I love these cute Clay Pot Snowman ornies from Hobby Lobby!  Since I am not a patient painter (LOL), I plan to decoupage some scrapbook paper scraps onto the bottom rims instead of the detailed painting. To use up things I have, I will also use ready made trims, fleece, ribbons and yarn from my stash.  I have a bit of orange Sculpey at home to make noses (one less thing to paint).  Hmmm, I think I have some jingle bells to hang inside the pots too, I think that will be cute and add sound and movement!   Now, if I could only get my camera to work again  (Hey Santa!  hint, hint...) I would show the finished product.
