My snowman fridge

I don't know about you but I love me some snowmen.  They, along with nativity sets. pretty much complete my Holiday decorating.  I think they are so cute.  I was driving around running errands yesterday when it hit me... make a snowman out of my fridge! Sounded simple enough, if I could just clear all the art work and clutter that I seem to have on the front of my fridge all the time.  Best part is that most of us can do this for free!  I took my trusty circle cutter and cut cirlces in different sizes (2 for the eyes, 5 for the smile and 3 for the buttons) and just taped them on.  It would've worked just as well with construction paper, but I didn't have any so I did it with scrapbook paper.  I also cut a large triangle out of some orange scrapbook paper.  Then I used wrapping paper that I cut in strips and taped. ( I got the wrapping paper free last year with a coupon for Hallmark stores) Doesn't it look so good as a scarf?  I know it really didn't need an explaination, its pretty easy.  I love it!  So simple, but a fun way to add a little pizzaz to your house.  I guess I should be thankful for my old white fridge now, huh? ;) Linking up to thrifty decor chick

I copied you and used foam sheets and magnets on the back... it is kind of an emoticon for how the family is feeling, sometimes I come in to big frowns, or worried grins. :) Thanks for sharing your idea.

I found this on pinterest tonight and became SO jealous that I didn't have a white fridge! I made my version to go on a black fridge, though, hope you don't mind if I share for any of your other readers...

So how do you make the snowman?

tami said...

@ Anonymous, I just cut the shapes out of paper I had at home. The scarf was wrapping paper and the rest was scrapbook paper. Hope that helps.

I have tried to leave comments on several of your blogs to thank you for stopping by, but can't seem to get it done. It keeps telling me I don't have permission to be there! I don't know what the problem is, but thanks for stopping by, and please know I stopped by all of your blogs too! It did it to mine just now too and I know I have permission to be here!!!
