Starbucks Snowman Serving Tray - Paint DIY

What a fun time of year!

This guy

will definitely add some happy to my home:

I thought since I decorate my car

like this:

I should bring some of that

Starbucks Holiday feel to my home.

I had a treasure in my garage

(a $1 Flea Market Find)

waiting for some personality.

Red oughta do it.

For the Starbucks background red

I used 3 paints.

Just a dot of white and the two reds

mix to make a nice color base.

Plan to sketch or enlarge a sketch on your printer

to transfer the snowman.

Transfer the lettering this same way

by chalking the back and using pen pressing on the front.

Base the snowman in with Kilz Primer.

For the gray shading on the snowman,

I dipped my large flat brush in clear glaze,

then dipped one side in white and one side in gray

and blended on.

I used a denim mixed with navy for the hat

along with the black shading.

Here are some other colors for the face:

These reds are great for the darker tones.

For the even darker one I added a drop of black.

I sprayed the finished tray with Krylon Clear gloss sealer

and just for fun affixed the Starbucks logo

(lending all credit to their copyright).

And now my car decor is in my home.

Pin It!

There's just a little layer of ice on the lake.

Makes it sparkle.

Pin It!

Now this is happy art

with this guy winking at you.
