    Star Easy Snowman Pin - great to make for a teacher gift

    Lightweight cardboard
    Brown paper bag
    Man's black sock
    White acrylic paint
    Craft glue
    Hot glue
    Buttons for the belly
    Small beads, embossing powder or black felt pen
    Ribbon or strip of fabric
    Pin backing

    Draw two circles on the cardboard to make your pattern, about 2 inches for bottom and 1 inches for head. Fold brown bag in half, trace snowman, and cut out two pieces at same time.

    Paint with two or more coats of white paint. Make a small slit in the center of back bottom (this will be used to stuff a little poly fill in after glue is dry). Glue together around outer edge. I used Aleene's tacky glue.
    Hot glue two buttons on belly, I used a small red and green one. I put two dots for eyes and five dots for mouth. I used embossing powder for mine but if you have small beads that would look great.
    The hat is made with a man's black sock. Cut a strip from top about 1 1/2 inches x 3 inches and hot glue around top of head. Tie ribbon or a strip of fabric around hat and neck. Hot glue a pin on back. Add some glitter highlights for a little more sparkle

    Tragedy, sadness, loneliness and despair taught me that life is really a beautiful thing; if it wasn't I wouldn't be able to recognize that anything was wrong - Lynn in Virginia
