Snowmen Salt & Pepper Shakers

December 6, 2014
By now I'm sure you're all sick of seeing my hot pink shag carpet underneath all of my DIY projects, however I usually do crafts at unholy hours of the night and in my bedroom that just so happens to have a pink shag carpet, so until I get a new carpet or find another surface to craft on. (:

Anyways, my mom collects salt & pepper shakers which gave me the idea to make her some!

Here's What You'll Need:

Salt & Pepper shakers, plain glass ones
White-Out or white paint
a Sharpie
Red ribbon
& orange Post-Its

I used White Out, but you're going to cover the shakers in white paint. I opted out of doing the bottom just so it would sit better on the shelf and not be lumpy or uneven.

Also, I used white-out because it dries faster and allows the craft to get done in about ten minutes. (:

Next if when you start to get creative. Take your sharpie and draw two eyes, a mouth, and three buttons, leaving space for a nose and a scarf.
You're going to cut a triangle out of your orange post it and glue it in-between the eyes and the mouth.

You're going to take your red ribbon and cut it to the point where it will wrap around the shaker. You're going to glue a line around the shaker to keep the scarf on place and put a dab of glue on the ribbon to keep the two ends in place. Then, cut the ends into stripes to create the fringe on the scarf.

At this point, I also added a red bow with some burlap and a bell on the top for a bit more of a festive feel.

& you're done! (:
