Craft Stick Snowmen

I'm excited to share a fun and easy Christmas project you can do with the kiddos.  My daughter loves any kind of crafting so this is something she was happy to join along in.



Let's get started. 



You will need
craft sticks
white craft paint
brush 
black marker
felt or fabric 
scissors
glue
string


1. Start by painting the craft sticks white.  
2. Cut small squares of felt to use for the hats.  Cut small strips at the top so the hats will look fringed.  
3. Wrap the felt around the tops of the sticks and secure with glue.  Tie a piece of string around it.  
4. Cut small strips of fabric and tie around the snowmen necks so they become scarves.  
5. Using a marker, draw the faces and buttons down the front.  I used small strips of orange paper to make the noses.
 

Aren't they cute?  Something you can have the kids do without too much mess.  They would make good ornaments or fridge magnets.
