Over the past month, I have hosted several painting parties here up on the hill. We’ve had a total of 36 ladies in our basement painting these snowmen made from pallets…not all at the same time..:)
I have to say these parties have been so much fun! We will continue to offer DIY parties after the new year.
So let’s talk about how these parties work….
We started with some basic pallets and we ripped them apart using a hammer and crowbar. It was a very tedious project, but oh so worth it. Once we had all the wood needed to make a snowman, we began to assemble them using wood screws.
I set up painting stations along the walls. Each station had 2 chip brushes, 2 small detail brushes, gloves, a black sharpie marker, sand paper and paint.
Each lady began by choosing the pallet they liked the best, then sanded the edges according to the finish they desired.
Into each section of the container I poured the paint needed; white, black & orange.
Flannel/burlap strips and silver or red bows were provided to accent their snowman upon completion.
The hot glue station!
They started right in. First, I had them mist the boards using a spray bottle. Then they painted the bottom portion white. Next, they started on the brim and top portion with black.
They took their snowman painting seriously!
The eyes and nose were painted on using a template that I provided. They traced eyes with a black sharpie marker and the nose with an orange marker. After they traced the face they filled it in with the paint.
The finished product! They were so proud of their work, and I was so proud of them!
These ladies had a great time and I loved having them all in our home!
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great week!
