Celebrate the season by creating a whole family
of easy to make snowman. Here’s what you’ll need: Wooden balls in graduated sizes, wooden
spools, checkers and many flower pots, small pompoms, felt scraps, scissors, a round hole
paper punch and a hot glue gun and glue sticks. Start with two wooden balls of different sizes.
Glue them together with hot glue. Cut a strip of felt paper scarf making about a quarter
inch wide and about 8 inches long. Test the length of the scarf by tying it around the
neck. Remove the scarf. Cut it to the best length and trim a knot in the end. Then reattach
the scarf to cover the seam. For nose, use a small triangle of felt. Fold it over and
glue it in place. To make the snowman’s eyes and buttons, use the hole punch to cut tiny
felt circle. You may need to trim the fuss from the dots to make them easier to work
with. Glue the eyes and buttons in place. You can use the toothpick to help you handle
the dots. For a hat, cut a strip of felt to fit around the rim of a wooden flowerpot.
Glue it on. Add a pompom and glue the hat to your snowman. You can make another style
of the hat by gluing a wooden thimble and a checker together. Try different techniques
and options to make a whole family of snowman.
