Snowman Decor: Do-it-yourself

'Twas the week before Christmas and the kiddos are bored. So here is an easy craft for them (or you) to help pass some time and add a little Christmas cheer to your home. This is also a very cute gift! Here are the step-by-step instructions on how to make your own snowman!

Here's what you will need:

Piece of scrap wood

Felt

Scissors

Glue

White and black paint

First, you will paint the wood white. A little trick to make it look sort of like snow is to pat the wet paint with a piece of paper towel to create an uneven texture. It makes it look even more realistic.

Next, you will let the paint dry. This is important!

While it is drying, you can make your scarf. Take your felt and cut two strips out, about 8 - 12 inches each. Cut the edges so it looks like the end of a scarf.

Glue the scarf on around the piece of wood.

Now, paint on your eyeballs and a little nose. You can also use a marker.
