Sprocket & Spoke Snowman

Being a bicycle enthusiast and having extra bike parts I started thinking of ways to make holiday decorations from them.
The snowman I made from bicycle sprockets and spokes. The sprockets I welded together then painted (I'm sure there is some other method of attaching them together) . The spoke arms are just hot-glued on. I wrapped him in a ribbon scarf and stuck him in a piece of scrap painted door trim that I cut a slot in. The hat is 2 pieces of scrap wood glued together and painted with a slot cut in the bottom.

    I am crazy about snowmen and have clipped several this year! I am going to make a snowman for my mailbox decoration next year. I won a first prize a couple of years ago with one...have a snowman basket on it this year!
