Let's Get Started
Cut off a 1¼” piece of the cardboard tube and paint it black.
While drying, make the hat brim. Trace a circle, around 3” in diameter, and cut it out. Use the cardboard tube to trace another circle in the center of your large circle and cut it out to make a donut shape. Use the tube to trace one more small circle for the hat top and cut it out. Glue the small circle to the top of the painted tube piece and the donut shape to the bottom.
Push in two cloves to make the eyes and four for the mouth. Use a toothpick to poke a hole where you want the nose to go and push in the small carrot.
Press three cloves in the second mandarin for buttons and push in twigs (or grape stems) for arms.
Stack the three mandarins together and pierce toothpicks or skewers in as needed to help them stand up.
Loosely tie the yarn or felt around the snowman’s neck to make a scarf. Place the hat on top. You can add a toothpick to the top of the head to help stabilize it.
