I made these adorable snowmen for Christmas presents for various members of my husband's family.  Both his sister and mom are Steeler's fans, and his sister is really into snowmen, so I thought, hey? why not combine the two. So, these snowmen are made from 3 different sizes of Styrofoam balls, wherein I cut up scraps of the fabric, then used my screw driver and hot glue to punch the scraps into the balls. Then, I hot glued each individual ball on top of the other to form the snowman. The accessories were bought at a local craft store. The carrot noses I already had, and the eyes are googley eyes hot glued onto buttons. I chose not to put mouths on, because when I did, it looked funny. I  hot glued the snowmen to doll stands. I used painted dowel rods for arms so that there wouldn't be any rotting sticks. And, I hand drew and cut out the mittens. The snow men were pretty easy to make, and they were a hit! Which says a lot, because the people I gave them to don't usually get worked up about anything I make, or say even Smiley
