Step 1. Gather your supplies.
To create your snowman, glue the medium box to the top of the large box.
Place your snowman on a piece of wax paper. Using white Simply Spray Project Paint, spray one even coat of paint on the snowman. Tip: begin and end spraying off the project to prevent splatter. Let the paint dry approximately 30 minutes and repeat with one more coat of spray, if needed.
To make the arm of the snowman glue one Mini Stick to a Craft Stick, as shown. Repeat to make 2 arms.
Glue the arms to the top of the large box, so that they extend from the body.
To start the hat, place your small box on a piece of wax paper. Using black Simply Spray Project Paint, spray one even coat of paint on the box. Tip: begin and end spraying off the project to prevent splatter. Let the paint dry approximately 30 minutes and repeat with one more coat of spray, if needed.
Glue the black box onto a black foam sheet, leaving extra foam around the edges, like the brim of a hat. Trim as needed.
Glue the hat to the top of the snowman.
To make the snowman’s collar, twist the ends of 2 glitter sticks together to create one long glitter stick then thread jingle bells on.
Wrap the Jingle Bell collar around the snowman’s neck. Glue on 2 Wiggle eyes and some black Poms to make a mouth and buttons.
Fold an orange Fuzzy Stick in half twice and twist together. Attach to the face, as shown, to form a carrot nose.
Use acrylic paint to finish your recycled snowman, as desired.
