Hot Cocoa Snowman Plaque

Today’s project works well on a variety of surfaces.  Your computer provides a great resource for finding examples of chalk signs.  They are everywhere.  When I first did this several years ago it hadn’t caught on yet.  It was hot in the scrapbook area long before we painters adopted it.
