What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday aka WOYWW

WOW its that time again.. Here are my little guys I started last week I am still not done with them yet. I still need to paint there rosie cheeks and get some sticks from the yard for the snowman arms. Plus I have ton's of buttons to put on all these cute little guys. I stuck on a few for you to see what they are going to look like but they will all be different.


I used to make wood crafts all the time... Years and Years ago, and I really miss it. So I kinda started easy with just snowmen and gingerbread girl. I have plans to make more things but all are Christmas stuff right now.


 Here I am making there little hats out of socks and old mittens. You can see that I cut the finger off that red mitten and I made one look like a cap and the other have that pom pom look (top pic). I just used hot glue to put them on. I use a wire (like floral wire) to tie the top of the hat real tight then cut the strips for the pom pom. The last time I made these snowmen my Daughter lived at home.. (she was maybe 13) she is 21 now, anyway I had so many more cool colors of socks to chose from.. now I have boys so when I looked for socks they were all black and white..  lol

Here is where I am painting the rest of the little snowmen. You can see how they do look much cuter with hats on.. wait until you see them with the stick arms, I will have to take a pic and show you all next week..

Thank you for looking and if you did not come over from Julia's blog... HOP over and see all the other cool desks and what everyone is up to.

I ws here yesterday, honest! Love your snowmen, what a great idea. I used to cover an old coffee jar in cotton wool, give it a face hat, stick, and hide sweets inside. It was a bit naff! Happy WOYWW

Firstly, how many do you have? Your little snowmen are such fun. Love the idea of using old glove fingers for their hats. You want to patent that!!! Gotta go. Now where did I put those old gloves.

Chrissie said...

Hi Shirley,

It's bad enough that I am running nearly a week late, then I have been plagued with that pesky 503 error all night. Just wanted to drop in and let you know I was here this week. I love working in wood, too. These sure are cute.

Terry & Kim said...

Thanks for the little snowman. The knit hat is adorable! I love it.
