How to Build a Junky Christmas Snowman

🎶 Do you want to build a snowman? 🎵 
I just love snowmen so I make them with junky pieces any chance I get. It's kinda funny because I am definitely not a winter person and I don't like snow... but building a junky snowman, now that's my idea of winter fun!
How to Build a Junky Snowman

This is how I build a snow man with junky parts:

I picked up a package of bristled snowball ornaments from Target the last time I was there. I didn't know what I was going to do with them at the time but I sure do now!

I began by drilling a 5/8" hole into the bottom of 2 of the ornaments then removed the hanger. There was a bump of plastic under the plastic that fit inside the hole of the next ornament. I used hot glue to attach them. The bottom ornament was hot glued to an old wooden spool to create a base. If you read the post about my light up snowman, it's the same idea!

Next, I gathered anything I could find in my workshop to use as eyes, nose, mouth, scarf, hat, and arms. I used buttons, a push pin, a broken drawer handle, an old tin, and ribbon. As you can see I have a lot of fun building this kind of snowman!

As you can also see, I am a very messy creator. There is almost no room to work on this table but he is adorable!

This snowman was so easy to make with a hot glue gun and a few sparkly Christmas balls that were quite inexpensive.
