Wooden Frosty for outdoors

There is a very good practice at the school of our grown up Krokotak-girl – each class has a flower box outdoors and the kids plant the flowers there on their own. Now the weather conditions are not very favourable for this activity, so their task have been to make a Christmas decoration for them. Well, we, as parents, have aided them. This was the reason to make this quick, for a few hours during the evening, wooden snowmen.

We have made them out of a big log, stolen, with very good intentions, from a neighbouring house. We also used two smaller branches, this time taken from our back yard, and a wood plank which served as a base.Wooden Frosty for outdoors

We covered them with a white acrylic paint, leaving here and there the natural wooden colour.Wooden Frosty for outdoors

And finally – the accessories. The hats are felt, the eyes – buttons, and the nose – pompom. They are fastened with elastic; I wasn’t sure whether the glue would endure the freezing cold outside. Quick, easy, and nice. Wooden Frosty for outdoors Wooden Frosty for outdoorsън

We also added a bag of fir cones, spruce branches and red Christmas balls. I think we have done a great job this Sunday at the school yard!
