While searching around the internet some place I noticed this little block snowman, though mine is a little different as I always have to change things up. :-)
It is a very simple little DIY so lets get started......
Just start with 3 different pieces of wood, I used pine but you can use what ever you would like. Also what ever size you would like just taper off the 2 top blocks as you would like.
Just glue up the 3 blocks and let dry according to your glue directions, I used Elmers Glue which takes 35 mins to set.
I painted mine white with some acrylic craft paint, you could use what ever you have on hand. I did not prime the wood first as I wanted it to not be totally white but a slight bit worn looking.
For the buttons and eyes I used a black sharpie, I was going to use the craft paint for the carrot nose but then I remembered I had a orange colored sharpie knockoff so that worked so much better.
I added some accents to the carrot nose with a pencil just in case I did not like it but it came out good. Another idea for the eye would be those giggly eyes, the kids might enjoy those.
I added a scrap piece of red cotton for the scarf, I would of loved a plaid but I did not have any scraps on hand.
Now he is ready to watch over what ever you might need him to. :-)
Well this was a fun little DIY but I just love how BASIC he is, I guess you could add a hat and some stick arms if you would like, have fun with it and enjoy.
Have a blessed day and thanks for stopping by...
