Not the toasty and bubbly hot tub we might enjoy, but perfect for Frosty and his friends! This is a craft that kids just love, and a perfect way to re-purpose some dollar store items
The supplies you will need are as follows:
1 - 3" pail (find these with the favor bags)
3 - fingers from a white cotton glove
1 - handful of fiberfil
6 - 5mm black poms
3 - tiny pieces of orange felt
1 - 3" length of wired greenery/garland
1 - 6" length of 1/8" red ribbon
1 - 4" length of a wooden stick (dowel rod, popsicle stick, etc.)
1 - 1" x 2" piece of white cardstock
1 - 8" length of square acrylic garland or substitute with individual pieces of "ice"
2 - decorative snowflake embelishments
For tools, you will need scissors and glue.
Begin by stuffing the fingers with fiberfil. It's not necessary to close off the bottom.
Next, shape the orange felt into noses and glue to the face of the snowmen.
Attach the eyes.
Arrange the 3 snowmen in a bundle, offsetting the height so that the snowmen in back aren't hidden by the snowman in the front. Glue them in position.
Now, set the snowmen in the bucket. If they sink too low, just add a little filler to the bottom of the bucket to raise them up (fiberfil, tissue paper, etc.) Glue the snowmen into the bucket, but be careful to leave open the areas around the snowmen to put the ice cubes.
Fill the open areas with the ice cubes, slightly overflowing the edges of the bucket.
Form the piece of greenery into a circle.
Tie the ribbon into a bow and glue it onto the piece of greenery to form a wreath.
Position the wreath on the front of the bucket and glue in place.
Write up the sign on the piece of card stock. Glue the stick to the back.
Insert the sign into the bucket behind the snowmen. Add a few snowflakes to the corners of the sign. And that's it!
