4. Cut "buttons" out of edge of black felt and glue on as snowman's eyes.

5. Depending on the type of nose you want for your snowman, glue on a tip of a crayon, a cutout of orange felt or construction paper, or a piece of clay in a carrot shape.

6. Cut a rectangle out of black felt 3 x 4 inches long and glue the short ends together to make the hat.

7. Trace around the top of the hat to make a circle to fit. Cut out and glue on one end of the hat.

8. Trace around the bottom of the hat, making the circle slightly larger to make the brim. Cut out.

9. Stuff the hat lightly with felt scraps to help it keep the shape.

10. Glue the brim to the bottom of the hat. Glue the hat onto the snowman's head and anchor onto the popsicle stick.
