For those who live and work in the Northern parts, snow and cold are around for what seems like forever. Those in the warmer climates can only dream about snow, snowpeople, and carrot noses. Wherever you call home, these snow munchkins can be a joy to have around, and a bit of whimsy when life crowds in a bit too much.
Children and adults can build snow families right in their own front yard with Mother Nature supplying the essentials. But anyone can "create" a snowperson with a myriad of craft scraps. Styrofoam balls in various sizes are great for making lightweight and easily decorated snowpeople. Felt, and even worn-out white socks that are filled and given button noses, scarves, gloves, add to the fun of winter or wintry thoughts. You can wear snowmen/women on sweaters, on children's coats or fleece tops just by cutting out, embellishing and sewing or using fusible backing so that your special creations stick when the going gets cold and wet.
Several snowpeople on a window ledge with snow covered pine cones are sometimes just the touch needed to brighten up an area. Coloring pages offer a variety of patterns to choose from - the country version of thin or the old-fashioned robust, smiling, and cheerful lot.
How about greeting your guests and family as they come through your front door or walk up your front steps? Using tomato cages for body frames, cover with strong white cloth that will withstand the blowing winds, and the beautiful snowflakes that fall, and attach earmuffs, vests, and they can even hold an old sled or set of skis for that quick-decision trip through the woods.
