Making the Christmas Snowman's Body
The wood craft snowman's body is just a stack of the wood balls
glued to the doll pin stand.
Put the largest ball on the bottom and the smallest ball on top.

snow coating of the following steps from covering it up.
Once the base coat of paint is dry, coat the snowman with Delta Snow
or snow paint. This gives it the snow texture.
Drill a hole through the middle of the center wood ball. The arms,
made from the chenille stem, will go through this hole.

If the hat doesn't have a hole through the top, drill one.
Make a loop of ribbon or twine and tie off with a knot.
Thread the loop through the hole in the hat and glue the knot
inside the hat.
Glue the hat on the Snowman's head. This will allow the snowman to
be hanged on your Christmas tree as an ornament.
Thread the gold chenille stem through the hole in the center wood
ball. Cut off to length, and add some fingers made from the chenille
