Jack enjoys playing in the snow, taking long walks by the evergreens, and relaxing far away from the warm fire. He loves carrots and smiling.. His favorite accessories are his signature top hat and scarf.
Isn't he just the cutest?
Don't you want to make one too? I will tell you what I did, but first let me warn you that I am the worlds WORST tutorial writer/photographer, if you have no problem with that then keep reading.
3 White Styrofoam Balls (different sizes or all the same)
White yarn (1 skien is plenty, I had about half of one and ran out during my last ball.)
Block of wood
3/8in Ribbon (1 yard each of green, white, red)
Half of a popcicle stick or anything for the lollipop stick
Buttons for eyes, and body or whatever you want to use
Sticks or pipe cleaners or whatever for arms
Fabric or felt
Embellishments (I used modeling clay for the nose and candy pieces.)
Now, if you can't tell by the list of supplies, this is pretty flexible and super easy to do. I just used what I had around the house which means that little cutie didn't cost me a dime! For the next one I make though, I'm going to use super fluffy white yarn ;)
Paint your wood however you like.
Cover your balls haphazardly with yarn, until you get the look you want. If you have a color other than white styrofoam just paint it before you cover it with yarn. That way if you have blank spaces they won't be as obvious. Then glue them together however you choose. I used hot glue.
Step 3: Make your lollipop. Take your ribon and glue all three ends together. Fold the glued end over and glue again. Then just wrap the ribbon around in a circle gluing every couple of turns or so. Be sure you hold the ribbon tight. Glue your popcicle stick to the back, then cut a piece of felt or foam the size of your lollipop and glue it over the popcicle stick on the back of the lollipop to hold it all together. You can add a bow like I did if you want added cuteness. All the pictures I took of this step were blurry beyond repair, but hopefully your cool like me and can figure it out by looking at the picture :)
Glue your snowman to the wood and embellish.
And that's pretty much it. Super cute, super easy, super flexible. That's what I like to see!

So, did you get any of that or was I just rambling? I really hope I made a little bit of sense because something this adorable shouldn't get passed up by my ignorance :) Have a blast, and please comment of email me if you have any questions! (You can comment me even if you don't have questions also, it would make my day;)
