Loving this cold winter weather? Snowy days are perfect for making indoor diy winter decorations. Why not bring the beauty of the outdoors in with this adorable tin can snow ball container craft project. It's a great way to recycle those tin cans you're about to throw out and to spruce up your home after the holidays.
Large tin can
Handmade stencils (cardstock)
White acrylic paint/sponge brush
Start by removing the covering and any adhesive residue from a large tin container like a coffee can.
Next, make a stencil out of cardstock for the wording and embellishments. I found a fun site called Rapid Resizer that shows you how to make a word or picture stencil in almost any font and size to print out.
Once you've printed out the wording, cut out the letters using a craft or exacto knife.
For letters like o's and a's, you will need to make a "bridge" by dividing the letters to keep the center intact.
Apply painter's tape to stencil and attach to can.
Dry brush on paint to stencil . . .
and then remove. Let dry.
Add Snow-Tex to letters using toothpicks for a dimensional "snowy" effect.
Have fun adding the Snow-Tex!
Top off with faux snow balls to complete look.
Baby it's cold outside!
Thanks for stopping by
