It was so much fun making the Kleenex wreaths that I had to try a snowman with the same procedure. A short ketchup bottle (the kind that sits upside down) and Kleenex are the basis for this snowman. A few black beads for eyes and mouth, a painted toothpick for a nose and colored buttons are a few of the other supplies.
- 20 oz. short, wide mouth ketchup bottle
- Kleenex (about 12 sheets per snowman)
- White glue
- Black beads for eyes and mouth
- Piece of toothpick painted orange
- Three colored buttons
- Old sock with toe cut off and tied for stocking cap
- Wired silver star garland (optional)
- Wash ketchup bottle and put bottle cap back on.
- Tear the Kleenex into pieces, not too small. Starting at the bottom of the bottle, spread glue over a section of the bottle and place pieces of Kleenex over the glue and then push together to form a clump. Add glue and pieces of Kleenex until you have the whole bottle and lid covered.
- Fold the top of the sock down two times to form a cuff for the stocking cap. Cut the toe off the sock, gather together and tie a string about two inches from the cut edge. Slide the cap over the top of the snowman.
- Glue black beads for the eyes and mouth. Glue the piece of painted toothpick above the mouth. Glue three buttons down the front of the snowman.
- Optional: Place the wired star garland around the snowman.
