Hat, scarf and nose shapes


Glue the cotton wool pads into a piece of card, with the smaller circle on top for the head.
Stick on the hat, nose and scarf with glue. If you're using a glue stick, make sure you apply the glue onto the paper components rather than directly onto the cotton wool pad.

Trim round cardboard to get your finished snowman.

To make a Christmas card, stick the snowman onto a blank card.

To make a window decoration, stick a piece of sticky back book covering onto the snowman (sticky side onto the front of the snowman). Trim round the edge, leaving a sticky border of about a centimetre. The snowman will then stick to the window by pressing the sticky border to the glass.
