Nothing says Merry Christmas like a BB-8 Snowman. Olaf... eat your frozen heart out!

Step 1: Roll Up Some Snow and Get Some Accessories

  • Roll him: Try to get as round of a ball as you can get for the body. Then pop a half ball on top for the head. Notice the shape on the head, it takes a little sculpting by hand to get it just right
  • I used an old coax cable for his antennas
  • I spray painted the bottom of a pop can for the eye lens

Step 2: Color Him

Color Him
  • I mixed food coloring with water in a spray bottle.
  • Make it really concentrated
  • Let the water chill outside as much as possible without freezing so it doesn't just melt on contact.
  • I made stencils out of a pizza box to help guide it. Held them in place with help of the kids and a knife
  • The second time i colored it i just free handed it once i was familiar with how it sprayed.

Step 3: Enjoy

We had to move him since he was blocking the car in the garage.... so my little scavenger helped move him. He now wishes cars a Merry Star Wars Christmas at the end of the driveway.

I did have to reapply color.
