Once the wood is dried, place Craft Dots on the center of the disc and adhere one foam ball.

 Add a few Craft Dots on the top of the foam ball and lay the second foam ball. Repeat the process until you’ve stacked 3 foam balls on top of each other.

Cut a piece of felt that is long enough to wrap around the top of the snowman's head. Make the piece circular by adhering the ends with more Craft Dots.

Place the “hat” on top of the top of the snowman. Gather the top and secure it with some rubber bands. Snip the top to mimic a beanie cap.Glue-Dots-Styrofoam-Snowman-hat

Using more craft dots, attach two black buttons to the face for eyes.

Cut a piece of different colored felt for the scarf. Wrap around the “neck” of the snowman. Overlap the felt and adhere together with Craft Dots.  Trim the edges and add some snips to mimic a real fleece scarf.

Stick two sandwich pics on the sides of the middle foam ball to resemble stick arms.

Add some realistic snow texture to the piece with some Snowtex paint. I added mine around the bottom of the snowmen, onto the wood disc plus some on the foam balls and also onto the stick arms. Set aside to dry.
