50 Ways to Make a Snowman
By Melanie Christiansen

Now we're heading into what we Great Lakes folk call "the dead of winter." Santas and Christmas trees are stowed until November and thoughts turn to decorating for winter. Jolly little snowmen are great to brighten a room, decorate a lawn or door, or offer as a gift. A variety of materials (listed below) could be used to make the body. Make a hat from paper, felt, or other material, use actual buttons, pom-poms, cloves, beads, or stones for buttons and coal, or draw them on with pens or paint. Finish with white paint, coconut, snow paint, glitter, tiny beads, and even peppermint oil! Be creative and have fun!
