I was pleased with how it turned out. While un-decorating our big Christmas tree, I set aside any "un-Christmasy" snowmen or snowflake ornaments, just in case I went ahead with this project.
Here are a few more shots:
I love this snowman ornament that my sister-in-law made. Decorations for making your own are featured on her blog: WendyMacDesigns
The "Abominable Snowman" might be from a Christmas movie, but the star he is holding says "Happy New Year!" (2000--I guess I've had him a while!). I think next year I am making this tree my Rudolph tree for Christmastime.
The Baby Baers and I made these glue snowmen. The littlest Baer made this one. I love how they turned out. They are just made from glue! We picked sticks out of the woods and cut them up with kitchen shears, used construction paper for the hat and nose, and I already have a huge button collection. These snowmen didn't cost a dime to make since I already had everything. I also made them with my 21 3rd graders at school. We attached magnets to the back instead of making them into ornaments.
I used a baby blanket that Nana made Baby boy Baer for a "treeskirt" and set some winter Tiggers underneath that I've had for years and don't put out anymore.
