Crafty Last Minute Gift Idea – Snowman in a Bag

Are you expecting a white Christmas?  The temperatures here are going to be sunny and (relatively) mild, which is nice, but Christmas is the one time where I really like the snow.  So, if you have snow (or even if you don’t, but are holding out for it later this winter), here is a fun gift idea that can be made with items that you probably already have in your coat closet.  Better still – this idea isn’t Christmas-specific – it works as a fun gift for all sorts of occasions throughout the winter.  New Year’s Eve, Ground Hog Day? 

Now, I have a very “Frosty” looking hat here, but you could easily use a regular winter hat as part of this package.  Also included are mittens a scarf and a cute little pipe.   (I know not everyone has pipes on hand, and you could always omit the pipe altogether or craft your own. I’m thinking a lollipop stick with a wine cork attached?)

Of course, your snowman needs a face, right?  Insert buttons for the eyes and body, a fake carrot (or a real one, depending on your forecast), and some pompom fringe for his mouth.  There is some floral wire attached so that it’s easier for the face to “stick”.   Put these goodies in a separate Ziploc bag so they don’t get lost.

Wrap it all up in a bag with a bow (cute snowman ornament optional). 
How fun, right?  What’s not to like?
So, is a snowman in your forecast?
