Project Instructions


Step 1 Wrap a tea box like a present in white construction paper. Use glue instead of tape to adhere the paper to the box.

Step 2 Stand the box up on one end. Make two small holes in the sides of the box about halfway down. Insert a chenille stem into each hole. Bend the end of the chenille stem to be inserted in the hole so that it doesn’t pull out too easily. These will be the snowman’s arms.

Step 3 Glue a pair of wiggle eyes on the front of the box about 2"-3" from the top.

Step 4 Attach the glue bottle tip below the eyes. This will be the snowman’s nose. Let the glue dry completely.

Step 5 Draw a mouth using Elmer’s® Washable Swirl Glam Glitter Glue Paint Pens™. Let the paint dry completely.

Step 6 Tie a piece of yarn or string around the box below the mouth. This will be the snowman’s scarf.

Step 7 Glue buttons on the front of the snowman. Let the glue dry completely.

Step 8 Cut off the heel and toe end of a colored tube sock. Discard this part. Tie a piece of string around the cut end of the sock. Stretch the other open end of the sock over the top of the box. This will be the snowman’s hat.

Step 9 Place your snowman on a windowsill or anywhere else in the house for a festive winter look!
