Easy Snowman Pin - great to make for a teacher gift
Brown paper bag
Man's black sock
White acrylic paint
Buttons for the belly
Small beads, embossing powder or black felt pen
Ribbon or strip of fabric
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
