We came up with this gift idea because we wanted something different and fun to give to co-workers. It's an easy, cute gift to make.

Items Needed:

E6000 glue

Black Acrylic Paint

4 Wood chips, different sizes

2 Clamps

2 Black buttons

1 Q-tip

1 Orange felt piece

1 Small, brown paper bag

2 Googly eyes

2 Candy canes

1 Red nose

2 Small tree branches

3/8 " ribbon for scarf (not included in the picture)

Red tissue paper (not included in the picture)

1 Hand-held sander (not included in the picture)

Step 1: Sand, lightly, the largest wood chip at the bottom, so it can stand. Then, you lightly sand the top of the same wood chip so that the head can sit on top of it. You take the next largest wood chip, to be used for the head, and lightly sand the bottom and top.

Step 2: Glue the head to the body. I used a clamp to hold it in place for about an hour, until the glue dries.

Step 3: While waiting for the body to dry, glue the two smaller wood chips together, with the smaller one on top, to use for the hat.

Step 4: While the body dries, glue two buttons to the largest wood chip used for the body.

Step 5: Cut a carrot-shaped nose from the felt, and glue it to the face.

Step 6: Dip a Q-tip in black paint to do the eyes and mouth.

Step 7: Once the body has dried, attach the hat to the head, and the branches, used for arms, to the body.

Step 8: Make a scarf with the ribbon.

Step 9: Glue the eyes and the nose to the brown bag. Open the bag, and glue the candy canes to the inside of the bag.

Step 10: Put the snowman in the bag, and add tissue paper.
