Java Man



December Mondays bring on inspirations!


I love coffee & coffee ornaments. In fact my little coffee buddies hang around in my kitchen year round but they tend to jump on the Christmas tree when the tree comes out. How could I make a snowman with a coffee theme? Why make a couple of extra snow squares to get the word JAVA displayed of course!



I used 1-inch square wooden blocks that I painted with white acrylic paint, glittered; set aside to dry. Tiny eye screws & jump rings attached the squares together. Using my Cricket, I cut the JAVA letters out of brown cardstock. Wire for arms. Coffee cup & cinnamon rolls created out of polymer clay. Wire & tiny pom poms used for ear muffs. Seed beads and a red brad make up Java's face. White ribbon laced through the top eye screw and you've got a cute little Java ornament of your very own.
