First, you will sand your blocks slightly knocking off any rough edges. They don’t have to be totally smooth. Then you’ll paint the blocks white. I did two coats of paint. Letting the blocks dry between coats. After your blocks are completely dry add you vinyl face. If you’d like this cut file let me know! I can email it to you. 🙂

Then put a thin layer of decoupage on your block. TIP: You could also use watered down Elmer’s glue! Sprinkle the glitter over your blocks. Shake off any excess. TIP: I tried to avoid the vinyl face when putting on the glitter & decoupage! I didn’t want glitter hiding that cute face! ha! 🙂

Set your blocks aside & let dry. Meanwhile you can make your snowmen’s scarfs. I just used some flannel looking fabric scraps I had. Cut a piece of fabric about an inch wide & about 21 inches long. Fringe the edges with a sharp pair of scissors.

Then after your snowmen have dried tie their scarf around their necks. Isn’t that the cutest thing ever? I kind of love my set! 😉
