Dressing the Snowman:

If snowman’s head too fluffy for hat, tack down hat by sewing or a dab of glue on back of head and under flaps.

Put on sweater & button. Now add the branch arms with glue to make permanent. For better storage: do not glue in arms. Allow them to be removable.

Put scarf on snowman. Wrap around, tie and drape. Or do the stylish way: fold in half with fringe ends touching. Wrap around neck with fold in front and pull fringe end through fold.
