After drooling over the cute little snowmen pencils in the Martha Stewart Holiday Craft magazine, I decided to make a batch to give to the students at school who are reading. I thought maybe it would take an hour do whip up a set of these. WRONG. I quickly learned that it needed to be done in stages so that the glue could dry before starting the next step. Oh, and Martha's version is a double-decker snowman. I quickly decided that mine would just be snowman heads. I couldn't figure out how to get the two balls to stick together without some sort of support which I couldn't use because of the head of the pencil was stuck right into the bottom ball.
I'm kind of happy with them so far, but they need hats! If you think for one second I'm gonna knit little snowman caps for each one...WRONG! I don't know what to do. I'm thinking I've spent enough time on these already, but if I can think of (or if YOU can think of) an easy way to add a hat, I'd be much happier!!
