1. Print out the snowman parts and transfer them on the appropriate sizes of wood. The body is cut out of thick pine about 10 mm thick. The hat and the nose out of 4 mm plywood. Cut a 2 cm (h) x 6 cm (w) board the length of 32 cm for the base underneath the snowman. The sign is a rectangle shape measuring approximately 7 x 5 cm. Saw the outside edges in an uneven zick-zack way.
2. Saw and sand down all the pieces. Then paint the snowman, base piece and back piece white. Paint the sign and shishkabob stick brown, the hat black and the nose orange.
These are the painted pieces awaiting the next step.
3. Add a coat of textured snow paste to the snowman once the white paint has dried. The hat, nose and sign pieces get drybrushed in a contrast color. Here, the nose was shaded with red, the hat with white and the sign with dark brown. Once dried, use wood glue to adhere the hat and nose onto the snowman body.
4. The snowman and the back piece get screwed onto the base. Three screws are needed in total, 1 for the snowman, 2 for the back piece.
5. Using a paint marker or white acrylic paint and a fine paint brush, write “Snowballs for Sale 10 c”.
6. The balls get glued randomly on to the board with the hot glue gun once all other pieces are screwed on. Then a coat of textured snow paste gets brushed onto the balls, parts of the back piece, on the sign and on the snowman hat.
7. Tie a piece of ribbon around the snowman’s neck as a scarf.
