We're going to make Snowman Kits!!!
Did you know that this little bucket that would normally hold paint or nails....
could look like this!!!
and then spill out into something like this. I know this one is tough to imagine, but we don't have any snow here, so you'll have to build this little snowman in your mind.
He is a cutie though. See all the steps below to make this snowman kit for yourself or for gifts this Christmas.
Of course you'll need the bucket, because that's his hat. I bought these long candy canes at the dollar store for his arms, but you can always use two twigs or branches.
Next you'll need items for his face...I saw these next two ornaments and I immediately saw a carrot nose.
These silver bells are perfect for his smile...and they already have a snowflake pattern on them.
I found this in the automotive section. It's a funnel for pouring oil in your car...and IT"S ORANGE! Looks like a carrot nose to me!! (I know...I think I need therapy)
Here are the two ornaments ready to be painted.
Ok...these are too cute for words.
Here are some ideas for the charcoal eyes. The obvious styrofoam balls painted black.
or the not so obvious tops from 2 spice jars.
just open the lid...
insert pipe cleaner,
twist the ends
close the lid and you are ready to insert the pipe cleaner in the snow to hold in the eye.
For the buttons down the front of the snowman, I used 3 plastic Christmas ornaments.
Again, insert pipe cleaner...
Twist the ends and it's ready to go.
Here are the same steps for the jingle bells for the smile. You also have to use pipe cleaners for the nose if you are going to use one of the ornaments. Don't forget to add a colorful scarf. The green one that I used in the first few pictures is just a fleece blanket that was on clearance. I cut a long strip out of it to make the scarf. If you use fleece it's a no sew, because it doesn't unravel!!!
