Using scissors, randomly punch 10 holes into a paper mache box, being careful to stay at least 2 inches from the top (to allow the lid to close). Paint box bottom, box lid, and both wooden balls white. Spread a layer of glue over the lower half of box bottom and sprinkle on glitter.
Cut out a wavy circle of felt approximately 2 inches wider than the box lid. Loosely glue felt to top and sides of the lid.
After bottom of box is dry, poke lights through holes and lay battery case on top of wires. The base is now finished.
Hot glue two wooden balls together at the flat ends (the larger ball is the head). Dab pink paint onto the cheeks of your snowman. Wrap the twine wire around the neck and secure with hot glue. Using the end of a paintbrush, dot black paint onto the large ball to create your snowman face.
Cut a triangle of felt the circumference of the large ball in order to make the hat. Glue ends together to form a tube. Using a pipe cleaner, gather and twist one end together. Turn inside out. Roll up open end and secure with hot glue.
Embellish your snowman as you like—add pom pom snowballs on the ground, mini lights in his hands, evergreen branches in the background, ribbon embellishments and glitter galore!
