    Snowman

    It seems everywhere I go I'm seeing these snowmen. It looks like they are made from a paper towel roll(?) , wrapped in a sheet (maybe) of that snow thet sell for the xmas villages etc. Anyone know what I'm talking about and how to make them.

    never saw them, i'd love to see what they look like do you have a photo?
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.

    These are an older craft. Did ask one lady where she got hers. Her ex DIL bought them at a craft fair years ago. So no help there.LOL.

    I googled paper towel snowman and got a lot of images. Are any of these what you are talking about?

    They are cute and a great way of recycling that useless piece of cardboard on TP. Eventually, I think the cardboard roll will eventually be eliminated and be just another thing of the past to be forgotten.
