Mr. Jack Frostbite

Pin It I would like for everyone to meet Mr. Jack Frostbite.


He is the newest "seasonal" addition to our family :) and we already <3 him!

He started out as a cheap "freecycled" 6 foot white Christmas tree.

I added 400 white lights, 200 blinking, 200 not. (white wired also)


And one bag of twinkle fluff.


I was originally just going to fill in some of the big holes with it, but I loved it so much I covered all the holes :) (I used the whole bag) one little piece at a time.




I thought it was totally beautiful at this point and could have just added a angel and left it.

But nope time to add the accessories, or necessities depending if you are me or Jack! lol

Head

  • The largest Styrofoam ball I could by at hobby lobby
  • White tissue Paper
  • Mod Podge
  • Foam brush & a bowl with some water

I tore up the tissue paper into squares and did a glue mixture of 1/2 water 1/2 mod podge


Then applied it just like I was doing paper mache.


I covered the whole ball twice and let dry over night.


To finish the head all I used was acrylic paints and gave him eyes, carrot nose and a smile made from coal. :)


His hat I purchased at Michael's and added some holly and red ribbon.

  • All that was left was 3 black buttons made from bulbs
  • a scarf
  • 2- arms made of a red glitter floral item
  • and I added 7 silver snowflakes.


The pile of snow under him was easy, one bag of poly fill and a cheap white cotton tree skirt.

I hope you enjoyed meeting My Jack Frostbite as much as we are enjoying his presents. :)
