I don’t know about you but I absolutely HATE throwing away cereal boxes. It drives me nuts! I look at these large areas of paper board and try to think what I can do with them! I end up keeping pretty much every box in my storage closet until I figure out a good use for them. From ATCoins to ornaments, I’ve been able to use every cereal box my kids have finished for about a year!

This week, I decided to use my 2.5” hole punch to punch out some circles and glue them together to make thicker pieces. I painted them white and aged them with darker brown paint. Then I cut out some carrot shaped noses and painted those orange to adhere to the snowman face and make them a little more 3 dimensional.

I love how cute they came out! They’re fun and have such sweet little faces that would just adorable on a tree or decorating the neck of a gifted bottle of wine.
