Transformation~ Wood Holiday Cut Out


The lowly wood cut out is often passed up
by shoppers, but they quickly catch my eye!

I immediately begin to think...
how can I make this look wonderful??


I couldn't pass up these little snowmen.
$.50 each on sale.

I am using them to fill sweet little mini
stockings I made for a custom order.



First, I drill the hole with my dremel.
Ask for hubby's drill if you don't have a dremel.

Then I sand them to get rid 
of any rough edges.  I use
a worn out nail file to get in the hard
places.

Paint with acrylic paint.
My paint color of choice
is usually white.

I applied Martha Stewart clear
fine glitter by covering the snowman
with a thin coat of Elmers glue,
and then sprinkled with glitter.

Then go wild!
Embellish with whatever
strikes your fancy!

And before you know it,

  
you'll have something that is just
so stinkin' cute that
you'll be grabbing them up by
the handfuls!!!

Be Inspired Friday over at

Have a fabulous day,
a delightful weekend,
and splash some holiday
joy around your world!!!

Hugs!
