Christmas in July with How Does She?

Welcome to Christmas in July [now in August}! A fun Series to get us all inspired for my favorite holiday!
It is never too early to start planning for Christmas!  
Today we have HowDoesShe?

Hello Everyone! We're so excited to be apart of Christmas in July! Never too early to start planning!

Just a little bit about us, we are HowDoesShe?

We are a site dedicated to finding out "How Does She?" by collaborating ideas on how to become the wives, mothers, and world class women we want to be! We have gathered crafts, recipes, fashion tips, and many other ideas! Check us out!

Today we would like to share one of our favorite Christmas crafts...

2x4 Snowman

Gift giving at it's finest, from scraps of wood. They turn out awesome!

The supplies you'll need:
  • 5 inch 2x4
  • 4 inch 2x4
  • 3 inch 3x4
  • a 2x4 wedge for the nose
  • Scrapbook paper
  • 3 Buttons
  • Craft supplies (mod podge, scissors, brush, ink)
  • little toy truck, optional

    Apply your scrapbook paper onto the wood, using you mod podging skills. When you are done, use sand paper to finish the edges. I use 120 grit sand paper. It goes faster. 

    Mod Podge 3 peices for the body and one for the nose.

    For the buttons cut out 2 circles, one larger than the other.

    Use your stain to go around the outside of the circles.

    Add a real button to the center and glue them together. I just used mod podge to glue them together. It worked.

    Glue them to your snowman body.
    Stain the outside of the snowman and add snow...

    Isn't he a cute little guy? Perfect for gift giving or your own Christmas decor!
    The HowDoesShe gals!
