Salt Shaker Snowmen & Snow Women

Whats a girl to do when she finds a whole bag of salt shakers at the thrift store?

She waits patiently, knowing that some fabulously talented blogger will inspire her!
 That blogger is Mamie Jane's.   Go take a look at her snowmen salt shaker's and while you're there, follow her! She is a crafting magician....I'm not just saying this to suck up to her because I copied her idea, I really mean it, this girl can make anything out of nothing!

Mamie Jane's does the whole tutorial

Here's my princess snowman, can you be a princess and a snowman?...I say equal rights for snow women!

I'm going to put them in my booth at Orange Tree after Halloween
and will probably price them between $5-$7

They're a little kitschy but, adorable, fun to make, and would be great little hostess gifts!

I can't believe I am getting Christmas projects done since the temperature here in Orlando has yet to leave the 90's, finally cooler weather is predicted this weekend, I am going to need my sweater if it gets in the 80's!

Happy Creating!

How cute and clever! My Grandmother is like you and Mamie Jane, she can create the cutest things out of simple everyday items. I'm afraid that gene passed by me! It takes extra talent to create snowmen and women in 90degree temps!!----------Shannon

I saw the tutorial over at Mamie's Jane and I can undertand why you re-created them. They are so adorable. Lucky you for finding a whole bag of shakers!!!

Cheryl said...

Don't you just love that Mamie Jane? I did see her blog about the snowmen and now have some salt shakers to give this a try for a couple of shows I have coming up. I love how yours turned out and now I am even more inspired to get them started. Thanks for sharing,

I definitely have to check your friends blog out!
The shakers are cute and look like so much fun to do. My grandaughter and I will have to try making a few. I don't think you'll have any trouble selling them in your booth at all.

These are so adorable and I think you will sell out immediately with requests for many more. Fabulous Friday to you...

Marydon said...

Carol, Celeste does beautiful work & is not costly. The forms you found are fabulous. I prefer the wee ones for children & have had her do several for me. Get in touch with Celeste, you'll love her. IF EVER you run across vintage print feedsack fabrics that are in great condition, I buy them. I do not buy the advertising kind tho.

Have a beautiful weekend ~
Hugs, Marydon

Hi Carol,
Oh how incredibly cute and what a fabulous idea. What an inspiration indeed. I can see angel wings for angels and halo, some with ribbon attached for hanging on the tree. Bottoms filled with pretty beads. Oh my, what an inspiring post. Thank you for sharing the talented of an amazing artist.
