    Cut a small flat spot from the top and bottom of the 5 inch and 4 inch balls. Cut a small flat spot on one side of the 3 inch ball. Using low?temp glue to secure, cover the 5 inch, 4 inch and 3 inch balls with quilt batting, leaving the flat spots on each bare for attaching the parts together. Insert wood picks into the bare spots of the top of the 5 inch and 4 inch balls. Stack the balls to build the snowman, using the wood picks and low?temp glue to secure.

    To make the arms, glue three 1 inch balls together side by side in a crescent shape. Cover with quilt batting then glue to the sides of the snowman as shown. Toothpicks can be inserted between the arm and body for added support if desired. Repeat this step for the other arm.

    Decorate your snowman with the smaller Black buttons for its nose and mouth, a scarf made from the first type of seasonal ribbon, oval eyes and larger Black buttons for his "shirt" . All of these items can be secured with hot glue.

    To make the hat, cut a 9 inch length of the second type of wired ribbon and pull the wire from one edge. Gather the ribbon tightly on the remaining wire and tie the wire ends together. Glue the ends of the ribbon together to form a circle for the hat brim. Cut a 7 inch piece of ribbon and glue ends together to form the top of the hat then glue the top to the brim. Cut a small circle of ribbon and glue to the top of the hat. Secure the hat to the snowman using low?temp glue.
