The snowman looks so adorable! I will try to make this snowman, but probably I will use air dry clay as its less complicated for me. This project gave me an idea to make snowman charms as Christmas gifts. Or doing this with kids as a Christmas project. Thank you for sharing!

He is too cute to pass up. Next to Santa this is my favorite Christmas icon. I can't wait to get started. I make clay jewelry and just got started so I have plenty of supplies. So far the only thing I made beside beads was a dog. It came out fine and clay is easy to work with.

this guy is so cute i'll definately have a go.

This is so cute I am going to make one. Thanks for making and sharing this. Vickie

Does anyone know if a screw inserted in the top of head can be baked with clay? I think this has got to be the cutest snowman and a great tutorial.

I know this asked a while ago but in case anyone has the same question, yes you can bake a screw in with the clay. Just make sure you really work the clay around it. Another way is to make the hole and then bake it. When baked, then put glue on the screw and into the hole and let it dry. You can also use liquid clay to adhere it. Hope this helps others.

I think this little guy is adorable.
