Brick Snowman Bookend


Talk about easy crafts and crafts that kids can do! I've got a simple snowman {geez I like snowmen} diy that was inspired by my daughter. She brought home a similar brick snowman as a Christmas gift that she made at school and I thought it was just the cutest thing. With items I found from around the house, I was able to create a heavy bookend that keeps with my wintery, holiday decor. Plus, it does make a sweet gift or can be placed in the garden as a nice addition to any holiday decor. 


What you need:
  • a figure eight shaped brick {I found mine at a local nursery} 
  • White paint
  • Hot glue gun
  • Buttons 
  • Googly eyes
  • An orange marker/ Sharpie
  • Ribbon or fabric {for the scarf}
  • A holiday themed or red sock
  • A rubber band  
What you'll do:
  • Clean and paint your brick, let it dry
  • Hot glue eyes and buttons on, then tie a ribbon or piece of thin fabric around the 'snowman's' neck
  • Draw a nose on
  • Get your sock and tie off the end, creating a ball at the end, making the hat for the snowman
  • Put on his hat
  • Place on a shelf, in the garden or gift wrap for a neighbor, friend or teacher! 


So whether you want to make your snowman holiday themed or just wintery {you could use any color sock and buttons} he is sure to make a wonderful addition to your home. Happy Holidays!
