Instructions:

  1. Cut a flat spot off the bottom of the 6” ball with the serrated knife.  Cut the flowers from the stems leaving about a 1” stem.  Glue the flowers side by side around the balls to completely cover.  Leave a small bare space at the bottom of the head and the top of the body to connect the two balls together.  Also, leave a small bare space at the bottom of the body so the snowman will stand.  Insert the wooden dowel into the bottom of the head and glue the other end into the body.

  2. Cut a 9” circle, 6” circle and a 16” x 5” rectangle from the black felt.  Glue the rectangle ends together into a ring and glue the ring centered on top of the 9” circle.  Glue the 6” circle on top of the ring to complete the hat.  Tie a small length of ribbon into a knot, then glue the knot and the berries to the hat.

  3. Tie the remaining ribbon around the neck for the scarf.  Trim the ends into a “V” shape.  Glue a toothpick to the backs of the eyes then glue in place on the face.  Glue the nose in place below the eyes.  Place the hat on the head.

This is so cute. It has inspired me. But I need to cut corners on decorating cost so I have wrapped the balls with yarn I had, it's Pipsqueak yarn that looks like snow. The nose is a broken off tip of an orange crayon and the eyes are straight pins with black balls on the ends, you could also use tiny black beads on pins.
