Wax serrated knife with candle stub or paraffin; cut 4" cube from foam block. Set aside remainder of foam block for future project.
Cut the following strips from white embossed paper to cover foam cubes: one 3-1/2" x 12"; two 4-1/2" x 8-1/4"; two 5-1/2" x 10-1/4". In addition, cut one 2-3/4", one 3-3/4", and one 4-3/4" square from white embossed paper; set aside.
Overlap two short ends of 4-1/2"-wide strips 1/4" to create one 4-1/2" x 16-1/4" strip; glue overlapped ends to secure. Repeat with 5-1/2" strips, creating one 5-1/2" x 20-1/4" strip; glue ends to secure. Score and fold each paper strip 1/2" from top of long edge to make sharp crease.
Beginning and ending in center of one side of each cube to prevent visible seams, wrap appropriate paper strip around four sides of each foam cube, allowing paper to extend 1/2" above top edge of cube; do not glue yet. Use fingers to crimp paper at cube corners; remove paper and crisply fold at crimp marks.
Glue and pin paper strip around cube sides, overlapping ends. Clip paper corners above foam and fold excess down to top of each cube; glue and pin to secure. Glue paper squares to tops of cubes. Use glue gun to glue cubes together as shown; align all seams at back of snowman.
Cut two 1" x 6" strips from striped paper; glue paper around dowels. Glue light pink pom poms to dowel ends. Use craft knife to poke small hole into each side of body; glue dowel ends into cube for arms.
Cut two 3/4" x 12" strips from striped paper for scarf, noting stripe position. Wrap and glue one piece around snowman's neck; cut second strip in half. To curl scarf tails, gently pull paper strips over side of pencil. Glue tails to neck as shown. Cut 3/4" fringe into scarf ends.
Paint chopstick tip orange; let dry. Use craft knife to poke small hole into center of face; glue nose into hole.
Refer to photo to glue wiggle eyes to face. For cheeks, punch two circles from pink paper; glue to face. Cut narrow "C" shape from black paper for mouth; glue in place.
Cut 1/2" x 10" strip from polka dot paper and glue down center front of snowman. Glue buttons to paper. Trim and bend chenille stem to fit over head; glue ends into head and tinsel pom poms over ends for earmuffs.
