What was supposed to be a VERY quick project took far more time than I anticipated, but I am happy with the results.

The snowmen have styrofoam ball heads covered with white gillter.  Beads for the eyes, felt for the nose and I snipped the ends off cheap dollar store gloves for the hats.  A bit of ribbon tied around the pencil for a scarf.

I was inspired by the latest Martha Stewart Holiday Gift Guide.

Let me give credit where credit is due...the snipping off the tips of the gloves for hats was not my idea.  I posted a plea on my blog for help and that was what was suggested by a fellow blogger....but I agree with you, it was a BRILLIANT idea, just not mine Smiley

If life gives you lemons, turn around and make grape juice. Then just sit back and let them wonder how the hell you did it.

Here's my snowmen pencils:



Instead of cutting felt for the nose, we used an orange sharpie, and I used some fuzzy yarn as the scarves.
