It doesn’t take a single flake to build this frosty character — you can round him up with white foam, buttons, and ribbon.

What you’ll need

  • 3 round objects (we used a spice jar lid, the bottom of a yogurt container, and a mason jar lid)
  • Scissors
  • Craft foam, white and orange
  • Glue dots
  • Monofilament
  • Buttons
  • Permanent marker
  • Ribbon

How to make it

1. Using the round objects as patterns, cut out 2 white foam circles in each size.

2. Place one set of the circles on a flat surface, spacing them 1/4 inch apart. With glue dots, glue a 12-inch piece of monofilament across the circles as shown, then firmly press the matching circles on top.

3. Use more glue dots to attach buttons and an orange craft foam nose. With a permanent marker, draw on eyes and a mouth. Finally, tie a ribbon scarf around the monofilament at the neck, and then knot the line above the head to create a loop for hanging.

About welcomebabysl

Welcoming a newborn baby into your home is an overwhelming experience. Like other first-time parents, you are probably experiencing feelings of excitement and anticipation, as well as anxiety and uncertainty. The next few years of your child's life are very critical, and parents play a vital role in promoting healthy growth and development. Because children don’t come with a user’s manual, parents are left to follow their instincts, rely on previous knowledge, research the answers or ask family and friends for advice. It is definitely a learning experience, but not one that has to be done alone. Welcome Baby offers several different levels of support to first-time parents.
