Make some uncolored salt dough. If you don't have time to make your own dough, you can use white self-hardening clay.
Small buttons, beads and even sequins are perfect for adding details on your snowman. Whenever you put each of these materials, carefully push them into the dough and pat the dough around the bead or button to fix them in place.
Eyes - place a pair of wiggle eyes, small buttons or flat round beads to make the snowman's eyes
Mouth - arrange several small black beads to form a smiley mouth
Buttons - place a row of three or more colorful small buttons, flat round beads or sequins on the snowman's tummy
Place the drinking straw arms at the sides of your snowman's body. Gently push in the drinking straw into the salt dough, then pat the dough around the base of each drinking straw arm.
After this step, set your snowman aside to dry at room temperature. It will take three days or more for the dough to set.
While waiting for your salt dough snowman to set, you can make your snowman's hat. Check out these ideas:
a.) Upcycled materials - bottle caps, thimbles, spent coffee pods, tiny paper cups or medicine cups, and other disposable containers can be used as is or decorated into an interesting hat.
An old baby's sock or an adult glove that you plan on throwing out anyway can be made into a bonnet for your snowman. Simply cut out the toe end of a baby sock or the thumb of a large knit glove.
