Frosty the Doorstop
I went to my friend Patricia's house today for a Cookie Exchange, and the crafty girl that she is....she had a holiday craft all ready for us to make and take home with us. Gotta love that! I came home with a bowl full of cookies and a really cute snowman doorstop (idea courtesy of Family Fun magazine).
First, the cookies...YUM...
And here's my finished Snowman...
I used a trimmed off wool sock that sadly hasn't had a "match" for well over a year as the hat. A rolled paper cone made the nose. The main portion of the snowman is made from a keyhole-shaped paver...and I believe they only cost about $0.75 or something like that. Cheap, and cute!
Patricia's 10 year old daughter left us all in the dust though...she thought a penguin would be more fun, and I LOVE how it turned out. So neat how kids can take an idea and totally make it their own.
Thanks Patricia for a fun morning!

Very good post, thanks a lot.
Yummy! Love cookie exchanges. And I LOVE the penguin, that is just too adorable!
I love love love your snowman! That hat and those buttons are too cute. I also realize by looking at yours that my arms are upside down -- hopefully the scarf won't totally cover them. If you go to the salvage place the pavers are 44 cents-- pretty thrifty.
