Step 2: With hot glue, glue the hat to top of head. Glue eyes, nose and mouth to front of head in desired position.

Step 3: Glue buttons on front of body section of snowman.

Step 4: Wrap scarf around neck and glue where the scarf crosses to secure.

Step 5: Bend chenille stems into arms with hands in desired way. Stick into sides of snowman near neck. Glue in place.

Step 6: Place glass bowl or pumpkin onto snowflake mat. Cover pumpkin with snowman. Decorate base with poinsettias and Christmas picks.
