How to Create DIY Snowman Blocks

Simple and quick to make, these Snowman Blocks add the perfect decor to your front porch during the winter season. Especially if you’re lacking in the actual snow!

I actually made these five years ago with a friend, but after many moves and different weather extremes, they were looking a little sad. Actually, they were more than sad, they were downright pathetic looking. Most of the buttons had fallen off, and the white paint was no longer a pretty white.

Awe, poor snowman family! I almost didn’t pull these guys out this year, but then I got and decided to give them a nice update. Well, if I’m being totally honest, I personally didn’t update them. My eye for detail is not always the bet on objects like these. I can add buttons and sew up hats and scarfs, but painting details not my strongest skill set. So I enlisted Mark’s help.

DIY Wooden Snowman Blocks

To make your snowman blocks we found it handy to already have the Santa hats attached to the snowman. To do this, all you need to do is hot glue around the top of each block, and press on the hat. However, you can also save this step for last. It just made a nice grip for holding the snowman up while painting on various sides.

Paint your wooden blocks with Dixie Belle Paint color, Cotton. This fantastic paint has a fast dry time so that by the time we finished our last block, our first block was dry and ready for the details. Continue adding details with various Dixie Belle Paint colors to create your snowmen. Each of our snowmen is sporting a fun face, 3 buttons, and 2 gloved hands. Our middle snowman got lucky and received some pockets.

Once the Snowmen are painted, cut strips of your plaid fabric to tie around the blocks as scarves. It’s the finishing touch that takes the snowman family from cute decor to a whimsical addition to your home.

Instagram post 17888158810388948 LAST day of the takeover!😱 And I was JUST getting warmed up! If you follow me over @secondchancestudios29 you’ll know about my OBSESSION with all things pink! So when DB came out w/ a new metallic pink I was HEAVEN! Keep reading for my recipe and technique on getting this stunning Rose Gold!

If you haven’t tried Dixie Belle’s new Moonshine Metallics STOP what you’re doing right now and try them! They go on like BUTTA and have remarkable shine and sparkle. I made this AMAZING rose gold using two of the new colors. See recipe and technique ⬇️⬇️⬇️ This is a 50/50 mix using the new Moonshine Metallics in Rozay/Wedding Belle. I applied a base coat of Sandbar, but any neutral will work. Then apply several thin coats of the metallic mix (I did 4) Use a damp brush and keep brushstroke all going in same direction. Sand with 350-400 grit between coats for a flawless finish. Use the link in the stories to order your own Rozay & Wedding Belle to make this gorgeous Rose Gold!!!✨✨✨ #handmade #art #interiors #dixiebellepaint #vintagefurniture #homedecor #home #shoplocal #refinishedfurniture #vintage #paintedfurniture #shabbychic #chalkpaint #antique #decor #instahome #design #handpainted #rosegold #furnitureartist #pink #luxe #gold #secondchancestudios29 #glam #bespoke #lux #beautiful #nursery #babygirl
