Title: Snowman Pencils (complete w/ photos)
Post by: karynlibrarian on November 13, 2006 11:21:13 AM
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.

I spent my weekend making snowmen inspired by that magazine too!! I have to agree - it took WAY more time than I anticipated. I have to add my scarves tonight. :)

Yours turned out super cute!! I am LOVING the hats!! Great job!

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 :)

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.
