9)  Paint Snowman face using Black & Orange Nail Polish.  We found that nail polish worked best and provided a 3D finish.

 More Info:

  • The only drying time for this project was for the nail polish.  However, it took less than 30 minutes for the 1st coat to dry.
  • Re-apply the nail polish to add more dimension.
  • Use 5mm Black Sticky Back Rhinestones for eyes and smile instead of nail polish.
  • Cut small orange carrot nose from 2mm Craft Foam and attach with Mini Glue Dot.

    This is so cute, was looking for Christmas ornaments made of foam and came across this snowman. Love it will make them next weekend. A nice, easy and inexpensive way to spend an afternoon with my grandson. He thought he would make them for little gifts.
