I’m at it again making more holiday decor with terra cotta flower pots! This time… Santa and a Snowman.
For both the Santa and Snowman I started with 4 10 inch terra cotta flower pots.
Santa – I painted 3 Apple Barrel Red and 1 of them with Apple Barrel Black top for the belt. I painted the last one with Waverly Paint in the color Ballet Slipper.
Snowman – I painted 3 of them with Apple Barrel White paint and one with Folk Art Chalkboard paint.
Once the paint dried, I used silicone to put them together in this shape.
Santa – I painted on a belt buckle using Folk Art Treasure Gold paint. I used batting/snow that I found at Dollar Tree and glued it under the belt.
I glued more of the snow/batting on the top for his hat.
I added a little Mod Podge and glued one last section of batting/snow to his chest.
I hot glued on fake cobweb for hair, beard, mustache, and eye brows. I drew his eyes and nose on, as well as gave him rosy cheeks with a pink crayon.
Snowman – I painted the white part of the snowman with sparkle Mod Podge.
I hot glued on some white ribbon to cover one of the seams, and I hot glued on 3 snowflake ornaments as the “buttons”.
I hot glued on red ribbon onto the hat.
I hot glued on 2 buttons for eyes, and I drew on a carrot nose and smiley face.
I added a scarf to to his neck. I also added 2 ball solar lights to the top of each Santa and the Snowman.
