Can of Chips Snowmen Craft Gift Idea

I made these cute snowmen for my kids school teachers.  These would also make a great neighbor gift!  Here are the how tos:

Can of Chips Snowmen:

Here is what you will need:

o  Can of chips
o  White copy paper
o  Clear tape
o  Cute sock
o  Scissors
o  Twine
o  Hot glue gun and glue sticks
o  Black paint and skewer (or something similar)
o  Q-tip and blush
o  Triangle wood piece (orange paint & paint brush) or orange foam or orange pipe cleaner or orange card stock
o  Embellishments

What You will Do:

First you will tape one end of paper to can and wrap around securing with tape at the end.  

Cut the sock right below the heel. Then cut about a two inch section off. This will be the sweater part. The rest will be the hat part.

Place the sweater part onto the can.  Then place the hat part onto the top of the can. Tie some twine around the top and tie some thinner jute like twine around the sweater. I actually used those strands that you always get off of burlap to tie around mine.

Using a hot glue gun glue on the nose.  For my nose I cut a 2x4 about 1/4 of an inch thick and then I used my ban saw and made a nose shape. I then painted them orange.  You could use card stock or thick scrap book paper or orange craft foam or orange pipe cleaner to make  the nose.  Next you will dot on the eyes with black paint, I use a little dowel like thing, that has a nice flat round end.  Add some blush to the cheeks with a q-tip.

Lastly you will add your embellishments. I crocheted little flowers and placed buttons in their centers. Attaching them with a hot glue gun. Then I added these little wood nobs for buttons, you could actually use buttons here instead.  I love how these turned out :)
