It’s time to share with you another #BostikBloggers craft. Last month was all about Christmas and this month’s December craft collaboration theme is snow. I’ve put together a really simple Cotton Wool Snowman Landscape photo tutorial for you. It’s a great one to make with children and the finished project can be attached to the wall or put on the fridge with a magnet as part of your Christmas decorations.
You will need
- Blue A4 card
- White fluffy wadding (you could also use cotton wool for this)
- A snowman template (this is optional – I was kindly sent a foam sticker snowman that I used as a template – though you could make one yourself)
- Cotton wool
- Black card
- Bostik White Glu
- Silver Bostik Glitter Glu Pen
- Two googly eyes
- Sparkly stickers
- Small piece of orange felt
- Silver pipe cleaner (or any colour you have available to create the snowman’s scarf)
- Cut the white fluffy wadding into the shape you’d like your landscape to look like. I added a few hill shapes to it, then glue to the A4 blue card with the Bostik White Glu. You can either place the glue directly on the card or onto the wadding.
- I took the white sticker snowman and attached to the card and wadding. If you don’t have one of those simply use cotton wool to create the desired snowman shape and ignore the next step.
- Using the Bostik White Glu attach the cotton wool to the template.
- Cut out a hat shape from the black card. I did this freehand as it’s quite a simple shape to cut out.
- Stick the hat to the top of the snowman’s head using glue.
- Glue two googly eyes onto the snowman with the Bostik White Glu.
- To create a typical snowman carrot nose cut out a small triangle from either orange felt or card and glue on.
- Cut the pipe cleaner into three equal sized pieces to create the snowman’s scarf. I glued one along the neckline and added the two extra pieces of pipe cleaner to create the dangly parts of the scarf. You can use any colour of pipe cleaner for this.
- Take the sparkly stickers you have, again you could use any sort of sticker to create a snowfall effect. I love the sparkly ones as they add an extra element to the finished article, making it sparkle in the light.
- Take the Silver Bostik Glitter Glu Pen and add some arms to the sides of the snowman and a lovely happy smile to his face.
That’s it…I’d love to know what you think of the finished project? Hopefully we’ll have a bit of snow at some stage so we can get outside and make a real snowman!
Have you made any ‘snow’ related crafts yet?
