This Twine Snowman Luminary is a very simple project that my daughter created. She used the same basic technique as her Twine Pumpkin Luminary, except she used two balloons (one smaller than the other), and left a wide opening in the lower half (the body) to allow twinkle lights to fit up into the upper half (the head).
- a ball of twine
- 2 balloons
- a sponge brush
- white glue (any kind will do)
- white spray paint
- rubber gloves (if you don’t want to get your hands dirty)
- a small strand of Christmas lights (50 to 100-count)
After each “ball” was completely dried & hardened, she tied them together with a couple pieces of twine, snipping off the ends and tucking them inside the snowman. Then she sprayed him with white spray paint.
After the paint was dry, she stuffed him with a small strand of Christmas lights and, voilà! an adorable luminary to add to our Christmas decor!
Don’t forget to sign you & your kids (tweens & teens too) up for my mixed media art workshop, Winter Wonderland, where we will create beautiful winter-themed works of art, as well as simple Christmas decorations and gifts to give. Click on the image for more info.
