These cute snowmen are easy to make and can be filled with candy as a quick gift.
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.
old children's socks
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!
