Introduction: Boost® Bottle Snowmen

About: I'm a homebody who likes to make things, do photography, gardening, being outdoors with my family & dogs. Creative ideas (and not so creative ones) run around my head constantly and my frustration is that I...

These cute snowmen are easy to make and can be filled with candy as a quick gift.

Materials needed:

Empty Boost® bottles are the only material you really need. The extras could be made of many things. Here is the list of materials I had on hand.

permanent markers
old children's socks
craft foam
pipe cleaners or twigs
beads or buttons
yarn, ribbon or gift wrap

My tools were a pencil sharpener, wire cutter, scissors and hot glue of course.

Step 1: Make Some Carrot Noses

Sharpen an old chopstick and color the end with orange permanent marker. I added some horizontal lines for carrot texture.

Cut off the end and you now have your nose.

Step 2: The Face, Hat, Arms & Buttons.

These steps are pretty self explanatory if you refer to the picture.

Draw the face on with permanent marker & glue on the carrot nose.

For this hat, I used a cup to draw a circle then used the lid to measure for the hole at the center. It should be smaller than the lid (to fit the smallest part of the bottle). I found that a band of ribbon or decorative paper around the rim of the hat made it look better.

The arms and buttons were attached with hot glue.

Step 3: Making a Stocking Hat.

Cut a child's sock as shown. Gather and tie the top up with yarn.

Step 4: Happy Holidays!

I would like to download it but not paying to do that. I hate sites like this that make you pay when it should be free.

Wow, I've to make with baby!
