RE: snowman noddler

Well I'm going to be honest and tell you the truth Oddie - those bedspring snowmen are just darling as ever. How wonderful, they are sooooo cute, I love 'em. Send me a couple! Now I must ask, what did you make the heads out of, styrofoam and what....? How much do you think you would charge for these - $8.00 or more? I picked up some old bedsprings myself and was looking for ideas, hope you don't mind if I also use this one. You did an excellent job, pat yourself on the back - HONESTLY!!!

RE: snowman noddler

Thank you craftlady, the heads are old glass bulbs I found at the fleamarket, just turned them upside down and covered the hook part under the scraf, the nose I use small tops from glue bottles and some paints come with these tops also,
some I make useing saltdough, I use dimenisonal paint like snow to cover holes in the top of the nose, please feel free to use anything I might post as I said these are not my ideas ,just my crafting , I think $8.00 would be a fair price, probley wouldnt get that much in my area, I cant remenber where I saw it but I saw one made up with a flower on top maybe silk,the spring was painted silver and had a string of beads going around the coils, another had a wooden star on top , if I come up with any other ideas I will let you know oddie

RE: snowman noddler

Oddie, I agree with Craftylady--they are adorable. What a clever idea. I had to go back and look again when you said they were bulbs! Love the buttons down the front on the one--very cute. Are the eyes little black beads? And that little blue hat--so cute. Wish I had some springs to decorate like that. Will have to keep my eyes open and watch for some. Thanks for sharing. Luvs

Oddie,

Another post from me. You said you saw the idea on another forum, would you mind telling me what forum that was. If it was a whole different site than Garden Web, would you mind letting me know that also. Thanks,

RE: snowman noddler

Those are adorable, and I have to say, the best I've seen out of all. I keep saying I'm going to do some of those, but just added to my list of the thousands I have to do.

RE: snowman noddler

oddie - the spring people are very cute - I did these in a more "country" snowmenby gathering soft & natural into a ball for their heads - making a black hat for the head and leaving the spring natural & rusty, Laso made Xmas trees from a green chenille quilt I had stuck it on top add rusty bells sold like crazy. i saw the snowmen in country sampler last year and just went by the picture.
Any other snowmen ides to pass along to a fellow crafter in IL

RE: snowman noddler

Tammy - type "fun foam leaves" in your web browser line at the top of this screen (the long white box) and then hit the GO button - several sites on the leaves come up.

P.S. I see you just joined the site on 11-8-06 - Welcome, so glad you joined us. This is great isn't it.

RE: snowman noddler

There's a step-by-step guide to making these that used to be on the HGTV site. It's now been captured in the "Step by Step" crafting site here: Directions for Nodders

Here is a link that might be useful: Snowman Nodders

RE: snowman noddler

Bestalikat - the site opens up but I can't get to the snowman, the page has the words on it but no pics or instructions - am I doing something wrong?

Site troubles

Sal,

I'm not sure what to tell you. It works for me. I'm using Firefox.

There are lots of crafts on that page; the nodders is the third project down. There are TONS of pics, so maybe you just have to wait for them all to load?

Sorry I don't have any better solutions. Maybe try a different browser.

Allison

RE: snowman noddler

Wow bestalikat , that is a fun site to browse all those crafts. I saw screen painting,pavers, loved the spoon snowmen, the noodlers, and those cinnamon rolls. Is there also a place with written instructions, or you just have to go by the pictures and what few instructions are posted with them? Thanks for sharing this. By the way, Oddie, I think your noddlers are even more cute than the ones on the site! Luvs

RE: snowman noddler

Ohh my these are awesome!!

RE: snowman noddler

I have some nodders on my website, but they are not
fancy and I did not make the heads. They are just ornaments that I bought
and glued to the bedsprings. I did these about 4 years ago.
