How to Start Painting Your Flower Pot Snowman Craft

  1. Turn your terra cotta pot upside down on top of a surface you don't mind getting paint on. 

  2. Apply a few coats of white paint until it is completely opaque. 

  3. Allow that coat to dry completely before moving on. 

How to Paint Your Snowman Face on Your Terra Cotta Pot Craft

  1. Using a pouncer and some pink paint apply some rosy cheeks to your snowman using quick bouncing motions. 

  2. Putting some of your black paint in the cap of your paint bottle use the back of your paint brush to dot on some eyes. 

  3. Repeat this for creating the mouth of your snowman. 

  4. To make the carrot nose, wipe the black paint off of the end of your paint brush. Then, dip the back of your paint brush into some orange paint and apply the same technique being sure to overlap one circle with the next to create that carrot nose. 

  5. Allow the snowman's face to dry completely. 

How to Create Ear Muff for Your Terra Cotta Craft

  1. Once dry, cut and glue a piece of pipe cleaner from one side of the pot to the other, this will act as the top of your earmuffs. 

  2. After that, glue two large pom poms onto either side over the pipe cleaner.

  3. Once dry, display your adorable DIY Terra Cotta Snowman for everyone to see!

This is adorable. I think it would make a great project to do with my grand daughter. It's very easy and I have everything I need so why not try it! I think not only a snow man but with some changes, a Santa may just appear too. Thank you for sharing this.
