Snowman gifts

I found some snowmen on Pinterest and wanted to make my own versions. I thought they came out really cute with my added decorations. And rather than just drawing eyes and a mouth, I found these cute nails at Walmart for cheap! The longest part is just waiting for paint to dry to be able to sand/distress them. Out of one 4x4x8, I could make 1 large and 3 small snowmen. Never using chalk paint before- it said to prime first, I did. But then when I sanded it it just went to the prime grey color, but I liked the rustic look. Next time I'll try no primer for a deeper black. I glued the square hat and trimmings to the brim. Left the rest free for easy storage.
