Directions

Remove the twine hanger and set aside. Apply a coat of sealer allover the wood ornament. Let dry.

Paint the entire ornament with the blue paint. Let dry. Using the scruffy brush, dab the white paint into a 1” circle at the bottom of the snowflake. Leave the edges feathery. Let dry. This is your snowman’s face.

Using the back end of the liner brush handle, paint dip dot eyes in black onto the snowman’s face. Let dry. Add tiny white dots to the eyes. Let dry.

Use the liner brush to paint a small heart on either side of the face, below the eyes for cheeks. Let dry. Use the orange paint and liner brush to paint an elongated triangular “carrot” nose below the eyes. Use the back end of the liner brush handle to make 5 small black dots below the nose for a “coal” mouth.

Dip an old toothbrush or stiff brush into the white paint. Use your finger against the bristles to splatter the white paint around the edges of the snowflake for a snowy effect. Let dry. Loop the twine hanger back onto the ornament.
