I've seen snow a total of.. one time(s). This is because I've lived in Florida all my life, and anybody who's been here knows we have a shortage of it. As in no snow at all. That means I've never done certain kid activities like sledding, snowball wars, or building a snowman! (Though I did go ice skating recently!)
So, this year as a Christmas decoration project I decided to make a melting snowman for my front yard. I had to decide on something that would hold up outdoors so I immediately ruled out paper mache. (Though if you want an indoor decoration that'd probably be cheaper!)
Step 1: Gather Your Materials!
I used the following items to make my snowman, but you can add plenty of stuff, omit, or substitute plenty of stuff too! Everything I bought came from Walmart and Dollar tree.
*3 playballs of varying sizes (large, medium, and small)
*Spray paint (I used blue, orange, and white)
*Black rocks/buttons (I used the kind you use for floral arrangements/crafts)
*Great Stuff expanding foam
*Foam cone (Used for floral arrangements)
*Two sticks for arms
*Magician's Hat (Dollar Tree!!)
