Let the paint dry and remove the wooden stick. You can now fill the snowman flowerpot with cookies or candy.

6.4 Color a small part of the mixture with orange food coloring and shape the noses. Use the rest of the mixture to form the connecting pieces for the head and the body (four balls that you flatten a little). Let them dry overnight before putting them together.

6.5. Decorate the heads with juniper berries to make the eyes and place the noses in the center (it is better to make a small hole in the middle of the head with a toothpick). Then shape the base of the noses to fit into the hole).

6.6 Now put all the pieces together and take a toothpick to help you. This way the snowman is quite stable. When giving it as a gift, be sure to let the recipient know that there is a toothpick hidden inside so they won’t hurt themselves in the tub.
