Frost-free the Snowman
Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

It's no snow job -- this Frosty requires neither a white Christmas nor freezing temperatures to spread his cheer. All he needs is a stack of leftover boxes, a few pompoms, tape, felt, and some white quilt batting. Bonus: he comes apart, making him easy to store during the off-season.

What you'll need

  • 5 boxes in varying sizes (see the sizes we used, marked in the illustration)
  • 8 yards of 48-inch-wide, 4-ounce batting
  • Clear packing tape
  • Double-sided foam tape
  • 5 medium pom-poms (for the mouth)
  • 8 large pom-poms (for eyes and buttons)
  • Scissors
  • 7-inch square of orange felt
  • Hat and scarf

How to make it

  1. Frost-free the Snowman - Step 1

    Wrap box 1 with batting and secure it with packing tape. Tape together boxes 2 and 3 and boxes 4 and 5, then wrap them as well. Stack the wrapped boxes. Use double-sided foam tape to affix pom-pom eyes, mouth, and buttons to your snowman.

  2. Step 2 - Carrot nose instructions

    For a nose, trim the felt along the curved line as shown (A), then roll and tape it into a cone (B). Tape the nose to the head, then dress your snowman in a hat and scarf.
