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!

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!
