skinny snowman


I saw this snowman at my mom's so I thought I'd share him with you.  


This was a project from 2 years ago, BB (before blogging).  
I saw the idea for Snowman Pavers in a magazine.  
Family Fun, I believe.  I looked all over for those funny shaped pavers.  Never found them.  So I settled for thin ones (they were ~.40 a piece).  
I sprayed them white..added a felt scarf 
(no pattern needed..just cut strips of felt & snipped the ends to look like fringe).  
Added poms and pipe cleaner for earmuffs.  
Googly eyes, pom for a nose & mouth drawn on with my fave black Sharpie.  
I was lucky enough to have a collection of buttons 
from my great-grandmother.  
I made several of these little guys and gave them as gifts 
to my mom, aunts and uncle.
(it was their grandmother's buttons)
   

I realize that snowmen are usually round and much bigger...
but hey, I live in Florida :)
Sometimes you gotta work with what you've got!
