Project Instructions

Completely read the directions before starting. Cover your work area with newspaper to protect work surface. Collect and place all supplies needed on your work surface.

Clean the KraftyBloks™ with glass cleaner or a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water. Dry completely with a lint-free cloth.

Remove the stoppers and place the KraftyBloks™ opening down on the work surface. Apply Snow-Tex® on all sides of the KraftyBlok™, per the manufacturer’s instruction. Snow-Tex® dries permanently in 2-3 hours. Heavier application may require a slightly longer drying time.

In a well-ventilated area, spray the KraftyBloks™ with a pearl glaze. Allow them to dry according to the manufacturer’s instruction.

Pull a doll sized knitted hat over the top of the rectangle KraftyBlok™ opposite the opening. Lay block flat and position facial features (eyes and smile) to the block, hot glue into place. Shape the orange clay into a carrot like shape. Push securely onto the block creating a nose.

Place the mini on the work surface with the opening facing down. Cut the end of each wooden stick (arms) at an angle. Mix epoxy according to the manufacturer’s instruction. Apply epoxy to the end of each cut stick and to the sides of the mini Kraftyblok™ and into position. Hold with tape, until dry.

Stand the large Kraftyblok™ on the table and position the battery pack from the light strand on the table behind it. Place the mini block on top of the large block with the opening facing down. Tilt block and insert two lights inside the opening. Place the rectangle on top of the mini, opening down. Insert two lights into the block. String the remaining light to the front of the snowman. Place a mitten on each branch and drape wired garland between each mitten hand. Wrap remaining light strand around garland.

Glue buttons, snowball, gloves, and scarf into place. Light your snowman and enjoy the not-so-frosty glow.
