Christmas is on its way. So let me give you a fun task to lighten the mood and to forget about the stress of the holiday, getting you back to enjoying it! Everyone enjoys snowmen during this time of year, and this craft will be one everyone asks how you did it. This is a great craft to for your kids or friends and family.

You will also need craft paint and brushes, socks for hats, elastic or twist tie to bunch the hat, fabric for scarves, buttons for eyes and buttons, wood scrap or anything you would like to uses as a nose, and a glue gun.

A great idea for inexpensive gifts this year! Make each snowmen family set different, and remember you don’t have to tell them it was easy!
First, paint the wood white, to give your snowmen a body. Let it dry.
Next, Use your glue gun to glue on eyes and buttons, and the nose.
Glue on the hat, then using your elastic, wrap around the top of the sock to give it that bunched look.
Lastly, wrap the fabric above your buttons and tie it, then glue it in place!
Repeat on each piece of wood and you have an adorable family of snowmen!
