  2. Glue house sides, front and back together, forming a box. Apply glue to toothpick ends and push through foam corners to reinforce joints.
     
  3. Glue roof panels together and glue to top of house; secure with toothpicks. Refer to photo to glue chimney to roof; secure with toothpicks.
     
  4. Cut a 1/2"-tall, 1/2"-diameter cylinder from 1/2"-thick foam sheet for chimney spout. Glue spout to chimney.
     
  5. Cut out pattern as indicated. In addition, cut the following pieces from cream felt: two 5" x 7" (front/back of house); two 5" x 8" (roof panels); and the path to the front door. Trace foam disc twice onto cream felt; cut out and glue discs to top and bottom of foam disc. Glue remaining felt pieces to corresponding foam pieces (do not glue down walkway until Step 6).
     
  6. Cut four 1/2" x 5" strips from batting; glue strips to short sides of roof. Cut four 1-1/4" x 1-1/2" windows, one 1" round window, and one 1-1/2" x 2" door from batting; refer to photo to glue windows and door to house. Glue walkway to disc as shown.

  8. Refer to photo and use spatula to apply snow paint to house, paying special attention to where snow would naturally accumulate.
     
  9. Use black paint to draw window panes. Use white paint to outline windows, walkway, and to add random icicle-like drips in various areas. Paint tip of one toothpick orange; let dry.
     
  10. Glue foam balls together; secure with toothpick through center. Apply thin layer of snow paint to entire snowman; carefully glue snowman to disc. Glue bottle brush trees and wreath to disc and door. Push candy canes into disc along walkway.
