Another fun holiday project that you can participate in with your kids and family is making snowman displays for your household. This project is fun and can easily be created together, especially with adult supervision for older children. The snowman displays can be used inside or outside, though they are ideally appreciated more within your household. The materials that you will need for this project include a wooden dowel, Styrofoam globes of various sizes, buttons, spray paint, and any items that you may want to use to customize your snowman after it has been created.
The process begins with attaching the Styrofoam globes together with the use of the wooden dowel in the middle. If you are wondering where you can find these globes, they should be available at almost any art or craft supply store within your town. They are available in various sizes, allowing you to make small snowmen or large snowman. The bottom globe should be cut or filed down to be flat so that the snowmen will be able to support themselves when they are set on the ground. When you have attached the globes together, you can begin with the process of decorating them however you like.
Spray paint can be used if you are seeking to create a more unique look for your snowman. Some people like to spray their snowman with glitter spray paint so that they look more magical and have more of the holiday spirit. Other people may want to spray their snowman with an extra coat of white paint in order to ensure that it looks as realistic as possible. Spray painting is not necessary, it just adds another layer of style to your snowman overall.
Buttons and other various items can be used to create a face on your snowman. You may want to attach these with hot glue to ensure that they stay on for a more permanent period of time. However, if you are doing this project with your children, you may want to consider handling this aspect for them in order to ensure there are no accidental injuries. When it comes to dressing your snowman, you will need to take the weight of the items into account. Since the Styrofoam is fairly lightweight, any of the items that you use for your snowman’s clothing will have to be lightweight as well, otherwise there is the risk that it may fall over easily.
