Industrial Cable Spool Snowman

She's done it again! My friend, Kelli, has dropped off more industrial cable spool ends for me. A few weeks ago I shared some projects that were made with the last batch of spool ends she gave me. You can see them HERE.

A few days ago, she brought me 9 more! YES NINE!!!
Oh, what to do?
It only took a minute to decide that at least one would become a snowman. Best of all, I had everything I needed to create him.

After I dry brushed the spool with white paint, I screwed on vintage drawer pulls for the eyes...

5 Ball jar lids became the mouth...

An old spool became the nose. With a little sanding down, it fit snugly into the center hole of the cable spool...

The hat was made using scrap pieces of pallet wood leftover from another project. A strip of plaid fabric added the final touch to the hat...

I have some ideas for the other 8 spools, but first maybe this snowman needs a snow woman!
