Tree stump fun! Trim your tree and make a snowman for your porch or fireplace..
Supplies you'll need :
Wood Slice Snowman: Supplies 4 wood slices (2 for the body and 2 for the hat) Wood glue Large clamps Scarf (your choice of color) Glue gun with extra glue sticks 6- 3” long screws Scissors Wire cutter Floral pick (your desired pick) Snowman face template (optional, you could free hand it but I am attaching the stencil) 2 sharpies 1 orange 1 black (you could use paint)

Wood Slice Snowman: Steps 1- Gather all your supplies and plug in the hot glue gun for ready use 2- Get your two wood slices for the body, making sure they stack nicely and stand on its own, then apply wood-glue along the bottom and top of the wood slice and secure together with the clamp 3- Let the body of the snowman dry, then get your two wood slices for the hat and use 2- 3” inch screws from the underneath upwards (you could use wood glue but it is not necessary) 4- Once the body of the snowman is dry use 2- 3” inch screws angled from the top slice to the bottom slice to ensure they stay together (Don’t worry your scarf will cover the screws) 5- Once the body is assembled use your snowman face stencil (attached) and either sharpies or paint to fill in (I used sharpies to avoid the drying time with paint) Also it is a good idea to place the hat on top to make sure you like the way it sits and looks with the face 6- Once you finish your snowman face you will attach the hat by using 2- 3” inch screws on the edge of the top hat to screw down into the body securing the two. (I went on the side of the hat so you don’t see the screw but if screwed in all the way they are not very noticeable, you could also use decorations around the hat to hide) 7- Get your scarf, and with your scissors cut the scarf to about 5” inches wide and your desired length 8- Once your scarf is at its desired length use the hot glue to attach the scarf to the neck of the snowman 9- Get your floral pick and use the wire cutters to cut down the pick small enough to place on the hat of your snowman 10- Once you have your pick cut to the desired length use the hot glue to attach the pick to the snowman hat and enjoy your snowman!

Once the body is assembled use your snowman face stencil (attached) and either sharpies or paint to fill in (I used sharpies to avoid the drying time with paint) Also it is a good idea to place the hat on top to make sure you like the way it sits and looks with the face. Have fun with it!

Get your scarf, and with your scissors cut the scarf to about 5” inches wide and your desired length. Once your scarf is at its desired length use the hot glue to attach the scarf to the neck of the snowman. (if you want you can simply knot it so it can be changed)
