It’s finally cold here in Georgia, which probably has many of you laughing because you’ve already been experiencing winter for awhile. Are you looking for a craft project to brighten up those winter blues? How about a snowman spindle painted with Apple Barrel! I love him because he’s colorful and cheery, and he adds the perfect touch to a side table or centerpiece. He’s also a true budget craft, because Plaid designer Kirsten Jones reclaimed a wood spindle and already had paints on hand – so she didn’t spend $1 to make him. If you are looking for pieces of scrap wood to use as painted surfaces, try a brand new subdivision with houses under construction. Always ask first though! Here’s how our friendly snowman is made.
