Let’s make a snowman sign!
I am a snowman lover! It doesn’t matter if they are tall and skinny or short and stout, I love them all! So when I thought about making myself a sign for my front door, I knew I wanted it to be a snowman! You can use this free snowman face SVG to create a design from vinyl or turn it into a printable design with the print then cut feature. Watch the video below to see how I did that in Design Space. This free snowman face SVG can be used on many different surfaces! You could leave it as a cuttable file and make ornaments, signs, shirts; the possibilities are endless!
Below you will find still shots from the video tutorial with instructions. You can find the full video tutorial below as well.
I love these wood circles! They are so lightweight and easy to paint!
- Wood Circle
- Acrylic Paint – I used black, light buttermilk, holiday red, and cadmium orange
- Paint Brushes
- Wire / Pipe Cleaner
- Free Snowman Face SVG- I sized my design and printed via Design Space
- Rusty Bells
- Ribbon -I recommend wired ribbon
- Twine, or some type of string
- Glue Gun
Bring your free SVG into Design Space and make your file a print then cut design.
Paint your wood circle with your snowman face color, I used light buttermilk. Allow to dry.
Print your design
Lay your printed design on your dried surface and use a pencil to trace the picture from the top. Use pressure so you can see the indentations on your painted wood.
I used an old stencil brush to apply the cheeks to my snowman. You can use any old brush. I used holiday red for the cheeks. Put some paint on your plate, dip in your brush and wipe off most of your paint onto a paper towel. You don’t want a lot of paint left on your brush, just enough to leave a slight amount of color for the cheeks. Remember, you can always add more paint, but it’s very difficult to take it off if you’ve added too much.
I used a foam brush for my eyes and mouth
Use the end of a foam brush to dot the eyes and mouth onto your snowman. You can use any round flat surface, be careful not to have too much paint on your brush. You don’t want it to drip onto your board.
After your eyes and mouth have dried, line up where you would like your nose. Trace the nose using the same method as you did to apply the indentation for your eyes and mouth. Paint your nose using the color of your choice. I used cadmium orange. Allow to dry..
Wire ribbon works best for this project!
Using wire ribbon, make a bowtie style bow. You will need something to secure your bow, I used a piece of wire.
Decide where you want your bow. I was convinced I was going to place it in the center because I always go to the side with my projects. I thought I could do it, but nope, it went on the side!
Cut a piece of ribbon to cover the center of your bow where the wire is showing. Then, use your hot glue gun to glue that piece of ribbon to your bow.
Tie your bells together
I used twine to string my three bells together. Leave your piece long enough to tie them to your bow. After you connect them to your bow, add a small amount of hot glue to the bells to keep them secured to the bow.
Glue your bow to your sign. Fluff up your bow and arrange it to your liking. I added a piece of twine to the back of my sign with hot glue, and it held great. The sign isn’t heavy, so you don’t need much!
That’s it! You made a cute snowman sign!
