This darling snowman
and snowwoman make the perfect couple. All bundled up for a cold winter's
day, and so easy, the kids can make them too!
You will need
(for each snowman):
- 1- 1 1/2" diameter
- 1- 2 1/4" diameter
- 2 buttons
- gold ribbon
- child's sock
material or mitten scrap
- white craft
or hot glue
- black finetip
- small and large
- acrylic paints
in white, orange and pink
- clear coat spray
What you do:
down on work surface. Turn clay pot over and glue wooden ball to bottom
of pot. When glue is dry, use large paint brush to paint entire the
outside of the clay pot and the entire wooden ball with white paint.
Let dry and apply a second coat.
Cut the foot end
off of the child's sock. Create a brim by folding up the cuff of the
sock, then position the cuff of the sock onto the "head" of the snowman
(see photo). Glue the brim in place.
Tie a piece of
gold ribbon around the top of the hat and fringe the top with scissors.
Adjust the fringe edges with your fingers until they look the way you
want. Tie a strip of material or mitten scrap around the neck to fashion
a scarf. Glue in place if desired. Glue two buttons to the front of
your snowman. With black finetip marker, dot on eyes and mouth. Use
a small paint brush to apply orange paint for a nose and gently dab
on a thin amount of pink for the cheeks.
