Instructions:

  1. Cut three 16 inch lengths from 5-1/2-inch wide wood siding or scrap wood using a jigsaw or chop saw. These are your head pieces. Cut two 12 inch lengths from 2-1/2-inch wide scrap wood for the back braces.


     
  2. Lay the head pieces on your work surfaces with the desired right side facing down. Place the long edges together and align the short ends even with each other. Place the braces on the back of the head pieces, across their widths. Evenly space the ends of the braces from the edge of the head shape.
     
  3. Apply wood glue between the braces and the head. Attach the braces using wood screws or brad nails. Note: Make sure your screws or nails are not so long that they poke through to the front of the head.
     
  4. Using a jigsaw, curve each corner of the head to shape.


     
  5. Dry brush the front of the head using white acrylic latex paint. Do not paint the edges or the back. Allow the paint to dry.


     
  6. Cut a 13-1/2-inch length from 5-1/2-inch wide scrap wood. This is the hat top. Cut a 20-inch length from 2-1/2-inch wide scrap wood. This is the hat brim. Dry brush the chosen front of each piece using black acrylic latex paint.


     
  7. Lay the hat top on the front side of snowman head with the front of the hat facing up. Center the hat at the top with the left, bottom corner of the hat 4 inches below the head's top edge and the right, bottom corner 2 inches below the head's top edge. Apply wood glue between the hat and the head. Securely attach the hat using brad nails.
     
  8. Place the hat brim over the bottom edge of the hat top with the front side facing up. Align the long bottom edge of the brim with the bottom edge of the hat. Extend an even amount of the brim from both side edges of the hat. Apply wood glue between the brim and the hat. Securely attach the brim using brad nails.
     
  9. Using a stencil brush, lightly pounce two large cheeks on the face using pink acrylic craft paint.
     
  10. Using a chop saw or jig saw, cut a triangle from scrap wood that has a base approximately 1-inch wide and is approximately 4 inches tall. This is the snowman's nose. Dry brush one side of the nose using orange acrylic paint. Allow the paint to dry. Center the nose on the face. Apply wood glue between the nose and the face. Securely attach the nose using brad nails.




     
  11. Dip one end of a 1/2 inch dowel in black acrylic paint. Dot two eyes above the nose. Draw a large smile on the face using a black paint marker. Allow the paint to dry.


     
  12. Attach decorative pine or a Christmas floral pick to the hat brim using craft glue and brad nails.


     
  13. Measure down 1-inch from the top edge of the hat and 3 inches in from each side edge. Mark the measurement with a pencil. Using a 3/32-inch drill bit, drill a hole through each mark. Cut a 24-inch length from rusty baling wire using wire cutters. This is your hanger. Insert the ends of the wire through the holes and twist to secure using needle nose pliers.
