How to Make A Decorative Snowman

This snowman will last from year to year and can be made in many different sizes by adapting the quantity of snow used.



No need to trample out in the snow to create a festive, everlasting snowman. Create this winter icon with the FURNO™ Heat Gun and some shrink wrap cellophane bags. You will need six cups of fake snow, three shrink wrap bags, ribbon, buttons, a doll's top hat, a hot glue gun and some seam binding or twine.


Fill Bags with Fake Snow

Create graduated-sized snow balls by filling each bag with varying amounts of fake snow. Fill bottom bag with three cups, middle bag with two cups, and top bag with one cup.
