Part 1: Open packet A
Apply glue to the inner opening of a hat, and attach the hat to the snowman’s head. T Attach the snowman to the chipboard base with a dot of glue.
- Use the pin to poke a snall hole at the center of the face for the snowman’s berry nose. Wiggle the pin slightly to widen the hole enough so that the nose can be inserted. Apply a very small amount of glue to the wire end of the nose, and press it into the hole.
- Open the paint canister, and dip the tip of a toothpick into the paint. Check that the end of the toothpick is just lightly coated in paint, without any excess globs. You may want to practice making faces on a piece of paper before making the face on the snowman. Choose where you would like the snowman’s eyes to be, and just lightly dot the paint into place. Start small, and build the dots to a larger size by twisting the toothpick.
- Use the same technique to apply a row of dots where you would like the mouth to be. Keep in mind that the snowman will be wearing a scarf, so don’t extend the face too far down on the head. Let the paint dry before continuing to the next step.
- 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.
- Give the snowman one of the miniature trinkets to hold, and glue it in place.
- Repeat these steps to make the other two snowmen.
