DIY Crafts: Cute Snowman Wooden Blocks

DIY Crafts - Cute Snowman Wooden BlocksFor the past few months my husband has been remodeling two rooms in our home. As you can imagine, there are a ton of little pieces of scrap wood leftover from his remodeling projects. Instead of tossing them away, I’ve been coming up with quick and easy craft projects that utilize scrap pieces of wood!

The DIY Snowman Wooden Blocks craft project that I’m featuring today is super-easy to make! I’ve been making them in various sizes ranging from 5″ tall by 1″ thick by 3″ wide. I’ve made a few that are smaller than that and a few that are larger than that, depending on the scraps of wood that I’m using. All of them are made from pine wood.

To start off, you’ll want to collect some scrap wood in a variety of sizes. You’ll want to use rectangular shapes and you’ll want to make sure the edges are cut straight, so that they stand up on their own. You’ll want to use some sandpaper and sand the edges and sides until they’re smooth.

DIY Crafts – Cute Snowman Wooden Blocks

Wood Blocks (see notes above)
Acrylic Paints – White, Black and Orange
Paint Brush, Water Dish, Paint Palette
Newspaper and Paper Towels
Clear Acrylic Spray Sealer – Glossy Finish

Cover your work surface with newspaper and prepare your wooden blocks as described above.

Paint two coats of white acrylic paint on all sides of the block, allowing each coat to dry for about 30 minutes, before adding the second coat. Allow to fully dry before proceeding.

Using black acrylic paint, add two black oval-shaped eyes and then dot on small black circles to make the mouth. We just dipped the end of our paint brush into the black paint and dotted them on. Use orange acrylic paint to add the triangular carrot-shaped nose. Let dry for 30 minutes. Dot on small white circles in the bottom half of his black eyes to add depth. Left dry for one full hour.

Lay newspaper down outside and lay your blocks on top. Lightly coat each side of the wooden blocks with the clear acrylic spray sealer. If you’re only going to display them indoors, one coat will be enough. If you’re going to display them outdoors, you’ll want to add two-three coats of the clear sealer. Let dry for 8 hours before displaying.
