Simple Snowman Pattern

To make a snowman from wood:

Cut pattern from 3/4" pine if the snowman will be standing or 1/2" plywood if you are making a snowman that will hang.
For the base of a standing snowman, cut a piece of plywood about 10 1/2" by 4" to be the base. Sand all pieces.
Using carbon paper, transfer the lines of the pattern on to the wood. Paint with your choice of acrylic paint.

Suggestions -

A fabric scarf can be tied around the snowman's neck or a little stocking cap can be made from fabric.
The tree outline can be painted and teeny green bows added with hot glue instead of painting the greenery.
A hole could be drilled under his eyes and a small carrot nose added rather than painted.
Use blush or a pale pink for the snowman's cheeks.
If hanging, when finished drill a hole in the top of the head. String the wire through it and loop the wire.
