I saw this adorable little door mat over at one of my new bloggers posts from last Christmas and had to copy! She’s so full of great frugal crafty ideas – a lot of them under $1.00! If you want some more detailed instructions, see her great post here.
Here’s our adventure with this one. Enjoy the pictures!
First – gather your supplies – outdoor paint (Hobby Lobby, $1.20 a bottle); a door mat (Wal-Mart, $6.97); some newspaper ($1/week); and some feet (umm…the cost of these feet is too astronomical to list here. If you don’t have any kids, just take a wild guess, then add a few zeros.) Other helpful things are tape to mark off the outside edge, and a stencil.
White paint on feet + feet on mat = cute little snowman bodies.
Now for the Christmas Trees – green paint is nice for this one.
Hands seem to be nice to have around, too.
Put down those painted hands twice and you’ll get a Christmas Tree!
Add a 2 year old to the mix…and things really get fun.
Here’s where the stencil came in handy.
Then I added a few embellishments to the snowmen bodies – a scarf, a little hat, some buttons, and a few red ornaments and a star to the Christmas Trees.
And so there you have it. We made two of them for the two grandmas in our life. We should have done 3. I really want one. 🙂
