Snow Boxes

Let me introduce you to my little friends! I have been having so much fun making these!
I had been thinking about making a few of these for a while now. I bought a paper mache ball at Michael's last week. I painted it white, but I was not the least bit happy with the way it looked. The snowball looked evil. A little white glitter and poof it is happy, happy, happy!


What I like most about "my little friends', is that they look so cute with any color combination. No need to fuss about being too matchy matchy!

This little guy is the last one I made. I really liked the first one so much that I did not think any others would measure up to it. But how can you not like this profile? His little turned up nose? I was having trouble finding something to make the carrot noses. A friend suggested orange pipe cleaners, I would of never thought of that. They worked out fantastic. What would he look like without his cute nose?

Denise, these have got to be some of the cutest things you've made yet. Can you open them up and store stuff in them?

Love them...you weren't by chance inspired by me? They look very much like my pumpkin men...I plan on making snow ones as well. I already did a snow angel. They are a lot of fun to do. cherry
