Craft Day


When I was a kid my Mom and my Aunt Melanie (Mooie) would have my sister and I and all my cousins make cookies and crafts together. We all loved it. Now that we are on the next generation my Mom is continuing the tradition. Last year she had the kids as well as their cousins from West Union and some friends come over to make crafts. We did it again this year the Sat. after Thanksgiving. The kids had lots of fun and I thought I would share a few of the crafts…..

First, we made little snowman ornaments. I made these one time for gifts when I was in high school.

You need: small wooden spools, small woooden round balls or “heads”, black plastic top hats, snow-tex paint, scraps of cloth for the scarves.


Use hot glue to glue the “body and head” together.


IMGP4054 Paint with Snow-Tex and let dry.


Hot glue the hat on.


Use a sharpie to draw on the eyes, mouth and buttons and an orange one to do the nose. You can use cream blush or lipstick or a pink marker to smudge on the rosy cheeks. Tie string around his neck for the hanger and then cover with a small strip of cloth for the scarf. Stay tuned for some more pictures from our craft day tomorrow!
