Thrifty Thursday: Snowman Make-Do

This week's Thrifty Thursday item is the vintage brass candlestick pictured above. It was a real find at only $1.00 in a local thrift store. 'Love the tarnishing, don't you? The Snowman decoration is from a free tutorial by Willa at: The Old Cupboard Door Blog. The head is made from a styrofoam ball covered in joint compound and painted. Very crafty, right? Sending many thanks to Willa for this tutorial. I love how the snowman's neck is painted red & white like a candy cane. The great thing about snowmen is that they are nice decorations for all of winter, not just during the Christmas holidays. 'May have put a bit too much mica "snowflakes" on him though. What do you think? Prim autumn blessings.
