Week of Ornaments #6

 Let's just make it an all snowman kind of day. For this little clay pot snowman, you basically do the same as you would for the Wooden circle Snowman I made earlier.

Paint it white and let that dry.

 Add some orange paint for a carrot nose.

 Then use the glue gun to add googly eyes.  And outline the nose and make a mouth with a felt tip marker.
Then cut a long strip of scrap fabric.  Use the glue gun to glue it around the brim like a scarf.  Make a loop of ribbon or string and glue it to the inside of the pot and sticking up through the hole.  Then take another piece of fabric and glue one edge around the top of your snowman's head.  Glue the "seam" at the back.  Then bunch it together at the top to make a hat.  I tied mine with some clear jewelry cord I had, but you could glue it or use thread.  The loop should come up through the top of the hat.

Only 4 more sleeps 'til Christmas!  Yippee!
