Snowman & Family!

As the title says, today I will teach you how to make a snowman, snow woman, and a snow baby. The three have the same basic body form but are decorated differently.  For the snowpeople you will need: three cotton balls (only 2 if you are doing the baby), glue, (I would suggest using crafting glue or hot glue) glitter glue, needle nose pliers, wire cutters or scissors, goggly eyes, sequins, and brown pipe cleaners.

1. THE ARMS

Need: A pipe cleaner and some wire cutters or scissors.

1. Take the pipe cleaner, find or fold it in half and snip it in the middle.

Right there.

Right there.

 

2. Cut 2 small strips from one of the pipe cleaners.

 

3. Wrap them around the ends.

2. THE HOOK HOLDER

Need: Hook a cotton ball and pliers.

1. Take some wire and twist it around like this (use the pliers to adjust if needed).

2. Glue a dot of glue on the cotton ball.

3. Use the glue to fill in the space and hold it together (a bit of a battle in my opinion) let it dry.

 

3. PUTING IT TOGETHER

Need: Glue, 2 cotton balls (only 1 if doing the baby), arms and hook holder.

1. Glue 2 cotton balls together let it dry (don’t do this if doing the baby).

2. Glue the arms on and let it dry.

 

3. Add the head and yes, you guessed it, let it dry completely.

 

4. DECORATING (Snowwoman)

Need: Snowman body, glitter glue, pin (or something to move the glitter glue with), glue, 2 goggly eyes and sequins.

1. Add 2 lines to the face.

She looks ANGRY!

She looks ANGRY!

2. Attach goggly eyes to the face, use the pin to fix any problems.

 

3. Make a smily face with the glitter glue and use the pin to fix any mistakes.

 

2. Glue 2 sequins to the middle and 3 to the bottom.

The Snowman

Need: Body, goggly eyes, a pin, and glitter glue.

1. Add goggly eyes and a smily face.

 

 

3. Finally add the glitter glue to the snowman to make his buttons.

Tada! (again

The Baby

Need: Body, goggly eyes, glitter glue and a pin.

To do the baby:  It is basically making a smaller version of the snowman or snow woman. Do the decorating steps for the snowman if you want it a boy, and do the steps for the snow woman if you want a baby girl. Don’t add any sequins or glitter glue to the belly unless you want to.

An even cuter tada!

An even cuter tada!

To hang them up on your tree simply do this.

Now you can also add buttons instead of sequins or glitter glue (make sure they are very small). You just have to add an ornament hook the the hook holder and hang it on your tree. It would be COOL if you make earmuffs and/or a scarf to add on the snow people. Or don’t add a hook holder and attach the snowman, baby, or girl to an object.

Like so.

Like this.

I hope you enjoy this project as much as I do :]
