What you'll need

  • 2 cups Ivory Snow Ultra
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Toothpicks
  • Twigs
  • Cloves
  • Buttons
  • Felt
  • Seed beads
  • Tempera paints
  • Egg carton
  • Pipe cleaners
Helpful Tip:

As the soap dries (this can take a few hours), it will lose its grayish tinge and turn bright white.

How to make it

  1. To mix up a batch of faux snow, pour the Ivory Snow into a bowl, add the water and whip with an electric beater until doughy.

  2. Shape the damp soap into three balls. Stack them by gently pushing a toothpick halfway into the center of the bottom ball. Then, push the middle ball down onto the toothpick until the two balls touch. Do the same for the snowman's head.

  3. Add twig arms, clove eyes, shirt buttons and a felt scarf. To make a smiling mouth, press on a row of seed beads. For a mini carrot nose, color the tip of a short twig with orange paint. Top off the snowman with an eggcup hat or a set of pipe cleaner earmuffs.
