4x4 Wooden Block Snowman - Visions Of Sugarplums Day 3

Let's build a snowman!



This frosty fellow stands about 20 inches tall 
and was created with wood scraps.  
Isn't he sweet?!

For those who may be new here, my hubby's a custom woodworker so I have access to a very generous scrap pile!
We created our snowman from a three foot piece of a 4x4 and 
a scrap of  ¾" board.

The 4x4 was cut to varying lengths:
hat = 5 inches
head = 3½ inches
body = 6½, 9, 11½ inches 

The hat rim is a 5½ x 5½ x ¾ inch.



The wood was painted and heavily distressed. The scarf is an old flannel bed sheet, the eyes were hand-drawn and painted with some shiny fabric paint we had on hand. The hat was decorated with ribbon and pieces of silk flowers. His arms were cut from my lilac bush. And his nose was cut from a paint stick.
