Here is an easy craft for the holidays!  It's a perfect craft to get the kids involved!  I used hot glue, but if you have smaller kids working on it, Tacky Glue, or regular white glue will work - you just have to wait a little longer for the glue to dry.  You can make these any size, just depending on the size of the pom poms you use.


You will need:
-  White pom poms
-  Red felt
-  Black felt
-  Wire
-  Black craft foam
-  Orange craft foam
-  White glitter
-  White glue
-  Hot glue
-  Three red beads
-  Green bugle beads



Directions:
1.  Take two pom poms and glue them together.
2.  Cut a strip of red felt, long enough to wrap around the neck of the snowman.  
3.  Cut fringes at the ends of the red scarf.
4.  Wrap it around the neck and glue it into place.
5.  It's time to create the hat.  Cut a circle out of the black felt.  Also cut a strip out of the black felt.  Make sure you size them appropriately.  Glue pieces together.
6.  Glue hat onto snowman.
7.  Cut a triangle out of the orange craft foam.
8.  Cut two larger pieces out of black foam and four smaller pieces.  These are for the eyes and mouth.  
9.  Glue them into place.
10.   Glue on beads to decorate.  
11.  Bend wire into the shape of arms and hands.  Glue into place.
12.  Add white glue and white or clear glitter to create a frosty/snowy edge on the snowman.  Put it on the edges of the hat, the scarf or anywhere you want to cover up any excess glue.
13.  Let it all dry.

That's it!  Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Crafting!
