Do and I want to show you how to create a spindle snowman craft using a wooden snowman cutout, spindles and Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint!

Hey y’all!!  Since crafting with friends is more fun, my friend Do (find her at Do Dodson Designs) and I decided to do a quick project on Facebook LIVE for you!  It’s an adorable Spindle Snowman that only requires a few items to complete, but adds a ton of character to your holiday or winter decor.  Let’s take a look at the supplies you’ll need and then do a quick tutorial for my Spindle Snowman Craft!

Spindle Snowman Craft Supplies List:

This Spindle Snowman Craft uses Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint and re-purposed spindles to create a magical home decor piece for the holidays! #rusticorchardhome #homedecorcraft #dixiebellechalkpaint #DIYhomedecor #homedecorDIY

Let’s make our Spindle Snowman Craft!

  • To start, you’ll need to cut your spindles down the center to make the accent pieces for your snowman cutout.  This is something you can be creative with!  Use what you have & piece them together to add the features you want on your snowman.  Use wood glue to attach them and let everything dry.
  • Next, paint a base coat all over your snowman using the Haint Blue color from Dixie Belle.  Let this base coat dry before moving on to your layering.
  • Now, add some highlighting/shading with the color Sea Glass.  Just add a little so that the piece has some dimension.  Let this coat dry.
  • Finally, to add even more dimension to the portions of the snowman that would be protruding out, use a bit of White Wax as a highlight & wet distress a few of the raised areas in a random manner.
  • OPTIONAL – If you’d like for your snowman’s bow tie to be darker, you can add some Dark Wax, wipe it back and then stipple more White Wax on top to create a snow effect!
