3- Cut two squares of fabric and stick them with some buttons on the belly. Then cut two little squares a little smaller and stick them on top of the shoes, with a bow and a button on top.

5- Make a hat and a scarf with the felt. Glue the hat to the head of the snowman.
6- With the twigs of the hedge you have to make a broom and stick it in your hand. Put the scarf around the doll's neck and the snowman is ready! Now you just need to find a corner of the house to decorate it with this Christmas craft.
