It’s hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner and this year, it may be a little scarier than most. It’s all thanks to Nikita Veprikov, an artist based in the Ukraine who takes virtual snow and creates terrifying snowmen. They are from the movies, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Silence of the Lambs and the Saw movies.
Most of us think about snowmen as being fluffy and nice but when they are out of these movies, they are enough to scare you from ever loving snowmen again.
In an interview with SYFY WIRE, Veprikov said, “This was used for billboards to advertise fuel that works well in low temperatures. The client came up with the concept: to draw snowmen that depicts cold weather and combine them with famous horror characters to scare drivers. The slogan used along with illustrations was “Has frost started to frighten you?”
He added, “Client mentioned which characters from horrors he liked and I came up with the designs that were sorted out and improved on the stage of sketches. Making designs I just adapted key features of each movie character to the snowmen bodies.”
Of course, not all snowmen are creepy as you can see in this picture.
You might also be somebody who loves snowmen but hates the fact that they disappear so quickly. One option you may want to consider is a snowman Christmas tree. They are trending and gaining in popularity.
Not only can you build your own tree, but you can also kick things off with a faux white tree or start with a green one and buy the right supplies to turn it into a snowman.
If you are struggling to know how to do it, you may want to turn to blogger Michelle McKinley, who is also sometimes seen on Crafty Morning. She has videos on her website to walk you through the process.
One tutorial, in particular, shows how to use a red ribbon to decorate the snowman Christmas tree. You can even use a top hat and boots to take things to the next level.
