These snow-people can be used as Christmas tree ornaments or as stand-alone winter decorations.
I found the original instructions online at Get Creative! by Karen Booy. Her instructions are pretty easy to follow, feel free to follow the link above & download her page.
Here's how I make my snowmen.
If you are making stand-alone snow people, you will need to paint the doll pin stands now in the same way you have painted your snowmen.
The last step in this process is painting their eyes and smiles. I use a toothpick dipped in black paint with a gloss finish. This is always the scariest part for me...the smiles are the hardest. You just kinda have to eyeball it and remember that hand-crafted items aren't supposed to look "perfect."
I paint both ends of a ROUND (not FLAT) toothpick with Pure Orange paint to prep their carrot nose. After the paint dries I snip off what looks to be an appropriate length and glue it on. I use Fabri-Tac for adhesive.
The next step is applying the ornament hanger. I use twine or hemp and tie a slip-knot around the necks of any snowmen that will be dressed as men. It sorta looks like they are hanging from a noose (creepy, I know). No worries, though - once their scarf is on, the twine is covered up and we're back to looking like a normal ornament hanger.
Girls require a different method since I use straw hats that cover the base of their neck.
But first, I use a large-bore needle to thread the twine through the straw hat and "voila!" the hanger is done for the lady snow-person.
I start with the scarves for the men or the wraps for the ladies and glue the hats on later. If you plan to put any embellishments on the hats - I've learned it's best to do that BEFORE you adhere them to the snowman's head! Just sayin'.
I use mostly homespun cloth and tie a simple overhand knot for the snowmen's scarf. I don't glue this down, it seems to stay put pretty well on its own.
I do glue the wrap on the ladies. There's just no other way to make it stay. I also add a little blush to her cheeks - just bring out her femininity a touch.
Where do I get these miniature hats & accessories? I buy most of these items online at Factory Direct Craft. Their prices are usually better than most of the local craft/hobby stores, they are located in Franklin, Ohio - which means most things arrive the next business day, they offer FREE shipping, and they have the most awesome selection of primitive/rustic items. What's not to LOVE?!
And most importantly: Have Fun!
