Snowman Picture Decoration ~Bostik Challenge

This weekend I had Little M visit me for the whole day so her parents could go Christmas shopping. Litte M for those who need an intro is my crafting buddy. She is 6 years old and is my niece. On Sunday morning she arrived full of energy and bursting to go. The weather was kind and we did have a glimmer of sunshine so we decided that we would spend some time in the garden. I desperately needed to pick up all the leaves so Little M helped me. We spent almost an a hour clearing the garden after which it was time to go indoors to have a snack. Usually we make a smoothie but we were really cold so we broke the ritual and instead made hot chocolate and gingerbread latte the recipe you can find here.


For the hot chocolate I warmed milk in the microwave added some cadburys hot chocolate into it and warmed it for two minutes. Little M was dissapointed we did not use the Froothie Blender to make the chocolate like she does when we make smoothies. To cheer her up I let her froth the milk up with a frother and she got all excited. 


After refreshments Little M and I set about  with the Bostik craft box. There were many snow themed craft items in the box. Little M wanted to make presents for her mum and dad and little brother so we made a lovely snow man  Picture decoration for Litte S her brother and some lovely snow themed sweet jars for her parents which I will share in my next post. Little M really enjoyed making this snowman and she loved his goggly eyes!!!! She decided to call him Larry!! I have no idea why or where she got this name from.



To make the snowman picture decoration, you will need:

  • A5 sparkley blue card
  • Funky foam snowman cut out shape
  • Ribbon
  • white imitation snow fabric
  • 2 stick on eyes
  • Red felt for scarf and nose
  • Black card for hat
  • Buttons
  • Sparkly stick on gems
  • Bostik Glue
  • Bostik Glue Dots
  • Pencil
  • Scissors

To see how we made our Snowman Picture Decoration please watch the video below.


Being part of the Bostik 2016 bloggers with Tots100 and Merrily Crafts, I was sent some craft items in a box to create this project.
