This is a big hanging snowman piece that I got at the TS a while back for probably $1. Finally got it painted up.

Oh, Anj, he is great! How big is he? Looks like maybe 16 to 20 inches. Love that you added the jingle bell and the stars too. What a great find. And was it just the wood piece and you had to create the design yourself? So cute! Luvs

RE: Grungy Snowman

This was just a simple piece. It one of those that has the pattern kind of carved into the wood. The bell and stars came with it. He's about 21 inches high. Looking at the picture I think I need to shade his nose with some carroty lines. Funny how sometimes you don't notice things until you look at the picture of it. ha

Oh, Anj, I love your snowman. Do you happen to have the wrapper from this item - - - would like to know who the mfgr. is - - maybe this item is still available. He would look as very cute on my front door this winter.

Hi Clarice...I looked on the back and there is a sticker. It's from Roberts and the item # is 75-0587. Hope you can find one! ~Anj

He looks simple to cut out with a jig saw, or scroll saw, if you do that sort of thing.
I sometimes copy a picture and make a pattern for something I really want. (never to sell). And depending on size I want, I divide a photo like this into 3 or 4 sections then print each one out to the "full page" size. Tape them together and trace on the wood.

I usually lurk here, LOL, I can barely paint walls much less anything decorative. I sure admire those with paint talent tho.

Hi Karen, you know you are very welcome here! Glad you enjoy seeing all the projects. I think you have more painting talent than you give yourself credit for--I've seen some of your projects. :o) Luvs

RE: Grungy Snowman

Sorry Clarice...no other info. If you know how to use a saw you could probably cut one out for yourself or since the holiday crafts are starting to show up in the stores, check out your local Roberts Craft stores as it gets closer to Winter and maybe they'll have more of them this year or something comparable??

Hi Karen...quit lurking!! We'd enjoy chatting with you even if you don't post projects! ~Anj

RE: Grungy Snowman

Anj, do you have a crafts store called Roberts? Gosh, all we have here is Michael's and Joanne's. When we visit family in the Midwest, I always make it a point to visit their Hobby Lobby. If I ever get through SLC again, I'll have to be sure I find a Robert's to visit! LOL

RE: Grungy Snowman

Oh yes Luvs. We do. I didn't realize they weren't everywhere. Here's a link.

Here is a link that might be useful: Roberts Arts and Crafts

RE: Grungy Snowman

Thanks for the info. Anj. I didn't realize Roberts was a craft store. I looked on their website, but did not find a tab or search button for viewing their products.

RE: Grungy Snowman

Thanks, Anj. Nice to know there are other craft stores around. I'll keep this one in mind for when we are traveling. Do you find their prices about the same as Michael's? Luvs

RE: Grungy Snowman

Yes Luvs, they are along the same lines as Michaels and comparable pricing, but different products. I guess after looking at the site they are only here in Utah. Bummer.
