Snow more ugly decorations

December 14, 2016

 

You will need:

  • A 6cm polystyrene ball

  • A 4cm polystyrene ball

  • A baby sock

  • Circle stickers

  • Pipe cleaner (chenille stems)

  • Scrap of orange craft foam or card

  • Card for base

  • Glue (we used a hot glue gun to make the body)

Instructions:

  • Cut out a circle of card. Glue the larger ball onto the card and the smaller ball on top.

  • A hot glue gun is best for this so best if an adult prepares this ahead of time.

  • Make the hat by cutting through the sock at the heel. Tie the cut end with a small piece of yarn and slip the ankle cuff over the head.

  • Cut diagonally across the remainder of the sock from the cut edge to the toe, then open it out so you have a strip of fabric. Tie this around the snowman as a scarf.

  • Add stickers as eyes, mouth and buttons and stick on a scrap of foam as a carrot nose.

  • To make the arms, cut the pipe cleaner into 3 pieces. Cut one of the pieces in half again.

  • Twist one of the smaller pieces around a longer piece to make the hand. Push the arm into the snowman (adult help may be required). Repeat with the other arm.

Display your snowman proudly!
