Snowman Wreath Door Art — with The Graphics Fairy

This week over at One Month To Win It the theme is The Graphics Fairy!  If you have not voted yet – head on over here to vote for your favorite contestant project.  I couldn’t let the week slip by without making my own graphics fairy project.  I have been infatuated with BIG door art ever since my JOY Christmas Door.  I wanted something equally as BIG for winter.  So I took a little pinterest inspiration and came up with this snowman wreath…
I started with a very rustic vision of what I wanted.  More true to the original.  However, the kids had other ideas.  They took one look at my rustic version in progress and gave it a big veto.  So I went whimsical.  The kids love it!  The wreaths came from the dollar tree and I spray painted them white.  I then cut white felt to the size of the wreaths…
I used the tulip shimmer iron on sheets for a very easy snowman face and buttons.  So very easy.  Just cut out your shapes, peel, and iron.  You can’t mess them up.  Yes the nose is really red….but you won’t tell will ya?? 
I then used these snowflake images from the graphics fairy.  I just printed them on white paper and cut them out.  The snowman got a pretty hat from the basket of winter hats in the mudroom.
The scarf is just a few pieces out of an old sweater that I glued on.  The “arms” are broken pieces from a dollar tree snowflake that I painted blue.

Total cost for my front door — $4 — three dollar tree wreaths plus one dollar tree snowflake.  All other items I had on hand.  You gotta love that!
