Place items in position until you are happy with the look of your snowman. Using Glue Dots Advanced Strength Double-Sided Sheets, cut the adhesive to size to fit the width of the board where the brim of the hat will be placed. Press the adhesive onto the wood, remove the liner and press the brim firmly in place.

Add the buttons and nose to the board using the same technique.  Press Advanced Strength adhesive to the back of each item and press firmly into place for a strong secure bond.
