Junky Snowman Ornament

Today I'm sharing another project completely created from 
scraps, junk, and old hardware.

This 3" x 5" snowman began on a scrap of painted wood...
The edges of the board are framed with a metal ribbon.

Hardware and metal pieces from my 
workbench became the snowman. 

A doorknob bracket for the bottom snowball 
and washers for the body. 

The pieces are screwed, nailed, and glued in place,
held until dry by clamps.

Screws and a metal tack for the face, 
a rusty piece from the metal 
on a barrel became his hat and shovel. 

Painter's cloth for the scarf, wire for his arms,
a nut with glitter glue embellishes his rusty hat.

Epsom salts sprinkled over glitter glue becomes
the snow on the fence and the shovel.

A wired handle at the top is attached with 2 screws
and this little cutie is ready to hang. 

I'm decorating my junk styled home for the holidays!
