I got this last year and thought it was a cute idea but did not post it so I thought I would post it this year.
Melted Snowman Craft Project
Materials: 1 2" or 3" Styrofoam ball, 1 piece of white felt, scraps of black felt, 3 little black buttons, orange pipe cleaner, 2 googly eyes, 2 little sticks or branches for arms, and basic craft supplies
Starting with making the snowman's top hat:
Cut a piece of black felt 2 1/2" X 1 1/2". Either glue or hand sew the 1 1/2" ends together to form a cylinder.
Cut a circle the size of the whole and glue or hand sew on one end of the top hat.
Cut a second circle for the bottom of the hat about 1/2" bigger to form the bottom of the top hat and either hand sew or glue to the bottom.
Now, start making the black top hat from black felt. Glue the hat and 2 googly eyes on the Styrofoam ball to make the snowman's face.
Cut a piece of black felt to make the snowman's mouth and glue on.
Cut a piece of orange pipe cleaner about 2" and fold in half. Stick the pipe cleaner into the face to form a "carrot nose."
Cut the white piece of felt to look like a puddle of snow.
Glue the face and 3 buttons on the puddle of snow. Cut 2 slits on the white felt where you would like the branches to be. Place the branches in the slits and glue in place.
