Free Pattern: Country Snowman
1. Print out the snowman parts and transfer them on the appropriate sizes of wood. The body is cut out of thick pine about 18 mm thick. The hat and the nose out of 6 mm plywood. Once cut out, the pieces get individually painted and drybrushed in a contrast color. Here, the white areas and the nose were shaded with light brown, and the hat and the sign parts are shaded with white. Once painted and dried, use wood glue to glue the hat and nose onto the snowman body.
2. Cut a 2 cm (h) x 6 cm (w) board the length of 32 cm. This is the board underneath the snowman. The snowman and the sign get screwed onto the board. Three screws are needed.
3. The broom gets assembled by cutting a bundle of equal lengths of raffia, tying them together and inserting a stick in the middle.
4. The sign measures 10 cm x 6 cm x 6 mm. Cut the outside edges in a zick-zack way. Using white acrylic paint and a fine paint brush, write “Snowballs for Sale 10 c”. You can also do this with a paint pen. The pole for the sign is a 1 cm x 1.5 cm x 22 cm wooden stick.
5. The balls and cotton get glued randomly on to the board with the hot glue gun once all other pieces are screwed on.
