    I suggest a fat baked beans can, a regular green beans can, and a tuna can. After all of them are clean and painted white, get out the E6000 glue. Flip the baked beans can over. Flip the green beans can and glue it’s rim to the baked beans can. Turn the tuna can on it’s side, and glue it to the green beans can, with the bottom facing out. Glue buttons or felt eyes, rosy cheeks, and a small mouth to the tuna bottom. Fold a scrap of orange felt into a cone or carrot shape and glue it on for the nose. If you happen to have a Santa cap or a top hat from another decoration, use that; if not, make a hat out of felt. Use a scrap of knitted fabric or a felt rectangle, with fringed edges, as a neck scarf. Two twigs or more elaborate decorations complete the snowman and the arms. If you use larger cans, just adjust the felt decor. I really hope this helps. Merry Christmas! ☺️

    Hi Mamamia. I'm Cindy. You are going to need 3 sizes of cans. Wash them well and spray paint them white. Glue them together with your glue gun or E6000 glue. Glue 3 black buttons down the front. A small black hat would be a great addition. You might need to get creative and make one yourself. Eyes and nose can be painted on the top can. Good luck Mamamia and Happy Holidays.

    I large can, I polystyrene ball. Cover with white wadding. Tie a child's scarf around the neck. Add black beads for eyes, buttons and mouth. Add a felt carrot for the nose. Add a baby's woollen hat.

    Spray the tin cans white stack and glue together then decorate.
