Snowman Washer Necklace


You met Tom last week, now meet his friend...


 
Frosty!
 
 
 
By now I'm sure you know the drill, punch out circles, mod-podge, and Dimensional Magic.
 
 
 
Instead of using my normal wire, I tried this wrapped wire. Although it looks okay, it was a pain in the butt to work with in such a small space. For the others I made, I switched back to my old faithful 22 gauge wire (not wrapped).
 
 
 
See? It's just so bulky. It's hard to tell in the photo's, but the paper is glittery.
 
 
 
I wanted it to look like he had a hat on, so I went with a large wooden bead. The scarf is specialty yarn. I think it's actually called Scarf Yarn (huh, imagine that!).
 
 
 
I didn't think of it before, but now that I see him on that paper, he would make a cute ornament, too. That little guy may end up on my tree instead of around my neck!
 
 
I made a few extra and hid them from the kids. If you don't want to make your own, they're available Here in my Etsy shop.
 

Pin It

Here are the linky parties I join each week.

So cute. Who would of thought to use washers to make an ornament. Not me, that's for sure. :) Love this idea. I'm pinning it. I've just started following you. I'm visiting from Truly Lovely's Fancy This Friday party. So glad you shared this idea!

Absolutely adorable!

folkhaven said...

I love this idea... so simple and cute! The only thing I would add is something I found out when doing a kids project with washers. After getting the washers stitched into the toys (a magnetic fishing game) I glanced at the washer packaging again and found that they had been coated with chemical that was carcinogenic! So when buying your washers, look carefully at the packaging, with small packages these warnings come in small type and are easy to miss, but it is definitely not something you'd want to be wearing next to your skin. Luckily there were plenty of non-carcinogenic washers to be found at the same store!
