    Default Clay Pot Snowmen

    You will need (for each snowman)

    1- 1 1/2" diameter wooden ball
    1- 2 1/4" diameter clay pot
    2 buttons
    gold ribbon
    child's sock
    material or mitten scrap
    white craft or hot glue
    black fine tip marker
    small and large paintbrushes
    acrylic paints in white, orange and pink
    clear coat spray


    What you do

    Place newspaper down on work surface. Turn clay pot over and glue wooden ball to bottom of pot. When glue is dry, use large paint brush to paint entire the outside of the clay pot and the entire wooden ball with white paint. Let dry and apply a second coat.

    Cut the foot end off of the child's sock. Create a brim by folding up the cuff of the sock, then position the cuff of the sock onto the "head" of the snowman (see photo). Glue the brim in place. Tie a piece of gold ribbon around the top of the hat and fringe the top with scissors. Adjust the fringe edges with your fingers until they look the way you want.

    Tie a strip of material or mitten scrap around the neck to fashion a scarf. Glue in place if desired. Glue two buttons to the front of your snowman. With black fine tip marker, dot on eyes and mouth. Use a small paint brush to apply orange paint for a nose and gently dab on a thin amount of pink for the cheeks.
