Approximate Time: 2 Hours, allowing for drying time
Spray paint light bulb with flat spray paint until bulb is completely covered. I use the bottom of a egg carton to hold the light bulb while spraying it.
After the light bulb is dry, start sponging several coats of white acrylic paint, letting dry completely in between coats of paint. It may take several coats to completely cover the light bulb.
Decide what kind of facial expression you want for your snowman. Trace onto tracing paper and with a piece of graphite paper underneath, trace the face onto the light bulb. Paint the nose eyes and mouth and don't forget to give him rosey cheeks. When completely dry, spray with a non-yellowing clear spray. Sometimes I brush on a sparkle glaze on the white before I add the facial details.
While light bulb is drying, glue on the hat band and embellishment to the felt hat. Wrap the wire around the threads of the light bulb very tightly. Then thread the wire through a hole in the top, front portion of the hat. Twist wire together and form a loop for the hanger. Enjoy!
