So I dug out some old projects that were incomplete and decided to turn it into something cute and useful =)
I had started to make a Halloween candy dish a couple years ago but never finished it.
I hate painting with a brush as it leaves streaks behind, so I used my eBrush Siphon kit to paint the terra cotta pot white.
I though it would be hard to hide the orange and black, but it only took two quick coats and it's completely covered.
I then decided to paint the bottom rim blue to match the hat (lid). The little ball on top was sanded down to sit flush on the lid. It got a couple coats of white, then lightly airbrushed it with the blue metallic paint. Around the brim of the hat I used some Glistening Snow-Tex with white paint to create the fluffy texture of a hat.
The snowman's face was a clear candle holder from the Dollar Tree. I sandblasted it to give it the frosted look.
I found a cute little snowman face online and traced that in SCAL and cut it using masking vinyl.
I applied it to the jar and used my eBrush and Sharpies to color the eyes and nose.
Tied a cute ribbon for a scarf and added a few buttons. Now it just needs some candy =)
