Watch the assembly video:

 

 

Part 1: Open packet A

  • Apply glue to the inner opening of a hat, and attach the hat to the snowman’s head.
  • Attach the snowman to the chipboard base with a dot of glue.
  • Use the push pin to poke a small hole at the center of the face for the snowman’s berry nose.  Apply a very small amount of glue to the wire end of the nose, and press it into the hole.
  • Use the pen to draw eyes and a dotted mouth on the snowman’s face. You maywant to practice making faces on a piece of paper before making one on the snowman. Keep in mind that the snowman will be wearing a scarf, so don’t extend the face  too far down on the head.

    Part 2: Open packet B  
    • Apply a dot of glue to the wide end of a bump chenille arm, and attach to the back of the snowman, just under the neck. Bend the arm to make an elbow. Attach the other arm in the same way.
    • Select a piece of red twine, double it to make a loop, and wrap around the snowman’s neck. Insert the tails through the loop, and pull to tighten. Snip the tails to a good scarf length, and fray the ends.

      Finish: 
      • Give the snowman one of the miniature trinkets to hold, and glue it in place.
      • Repeat these steps to make the other two snowmen.
