Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?

The end of the semester is right around the corner and I have been itching to get my hands on crafting again. I have 2 projects lined up for this weekend (hopefully) and I just finished this guy.

Isn't he CUTE!!!! Plus so much fun to make. He is made out of a rough wood (sorry I don't know which kind). His nose, hat brim and star are secured with screws. The base is a solid block and has a triangle to attach the snowman to it. I used a heavy staple gun to secure the pine boughs and ribbon to the star. His mouth is bent wire secured by heavy staples and his eyes are fabric tacks. Oh and then of course the vinyl lettering on the hat. Sorry I didn't take pictures of the whole process, once I got started I was so happy to be crafting again I just did it and forgot to document. I will try and do better with the other two crafts.
I hope you enjoyed. Happy crafting everyone!

Oh and my daughter had a fit when she saw him she was so excited. But promptly refused when daddy asked if it was olaf. "Nope, he's just a snowman." :p
