Although here in Sheffield we are bathed in late Autumn sunshine, I’m always on the look out for the first sign of snow. The climate in the UK is so unpredictable, snow is never guaranteed but always possible! As it doesn’t currently look like snow is on the cards, I’ve created my own little bucket of snowballs to share with you today:
These snowballs are probably the next best thing as within the powdery exterior lies a heart of chocolate!
The bucket itself is one of my little wooden canapé cups. I gave it a couple of coats of gesso followed by a coat of white acrylic paint and then applied the snowman image which is from the Gecko Galz Frosty collection, sealing it with some Modpodge. Next, I added a coating of Snowtex and a liberal sprinkling of chunky glitter.
I’ve added mini white pom- pom trim around the top and bottom and added some extra, larger pom-poms to frame the image.
The handle is made from a silver chenille stem and I’ve decorated it with some more images from the Gecko Galz, white seam binding bows and a glittery snowflake. The additional words were printed from my computer.
I will be honest and tell you that the bucket is now empty! The sun must have melted the snow!!!!!
I am sharing this over at City Crafter Challenge Blog who are inviting you to to make or decorate a container for their “Hold it All,” challenge theme. The Design Team, as always, have come up with some great inspiration and is just the place to go if you want to find inspiration not onlyyou’re your Christmas gifts, but gift presentation ideas for other times of the year too.
Thanks for buzzing by.
