Melting Snowman


Delta Ceramcoat Paint:

2 Folk Art Mittens
Plug (nose)
1/8" Yard Black Felt
Black Marking Pen
1 3/4" Knob
DecoArt Snow-Tex
Scrap of Material (scarf)

Hot Glue
Masonite or thin wood scrap


Cut base out of masonite (or other thin wood). Paint base and knob (head) white. Paint mittens
black. Paint plug (nose) orange (tangerine). (Tip: Using a tiny bit of hot glue, attach mittens, knob
and nose to a popsicle stick for easier painting).


After the head is dry, using a toothpick or stylus (or even the handle end of a paintbrush) and black
paint, make 2 dots for the eyes. (See face pattern) Using a black permanent marker, draw the
eyebrows, mouth and make 3 freckles on each cheek. Use a little blush on each cheek. Using a
toothpick, place a white dot on each eye.


Cut Snowball's scarf out of material - 1" wide by 12" long.

Using a heavyweight black felt, use Pattern C to cut the hat pieces out of the felt. To assemble hat:
Fold Piece #1 in half lengthwise. (see first picture below) Use a couple small drops of glue inside the
piece to keep it folded. Overlap the back joint and hot glue it will now be a small circle.
(see second picture below) Using Piece #2, clip the corners off (see dotted lines on pattern) and
push it up inside the Piece #1 you just created. Piece #2 is now the top of the hat. Hot glue it in a
ew spots to the inside of Piece #1. Lay this piece centered on top of Piece #3. With needle and
thread, whipstitch the top of the hat to Piece #3 (just a few stitches will do). Add a bit of SnowTex
to top of hat for snow, if desired.


Hot glue head to base (see picture for placement). Glue a mitten on each side of his head. Glue nose
to center of face. Fold scarf in half lengthwise and tie around Snowball's neck, cutting the ends to the
length you want. Center hat on his glue in place.
