How to Make

  1. Take a white pipe cleaner and twist it loosely around your finger to make a spiral. Then remove it and adjust it to make the loops in the middle wider and the loops at the ends smaller. This will be the snowman’s body.
  2. Twist another white pipe cleaner into a tighter spiral and glue it inside the spiral you made in step 1. This will prevent the snowman being top heavy.
  3. Repeat step 1 with another pipe cleaner, however this time make it slightly smaller. This will be the head.
  4. Glue a tiny piece of orange pipe cleaner to the front of the head, and stick two wiggle eyes above it.
  5. Twist a black pipe cleaner into a flat spiral to make the base of the hat. Add another pipe cleaner if you need the hat to be wider.
  6. Twist another black pipe cleaner around your finger, or a pen, and glue it to the spiral to make the snowman’s hat.
  7. Glue the hat to the snowman’s head, then glue the head to the body. Leave to dry.
  8. Once all the glue has dried, wrap a red pipe cleaner around the snowman’s neck to make a scarf.
