To make Snowman from wood:
Cut snowman body template from 3/4" pine if the snowman will be standing or 1/2" plywood if you are making a snowman that will hang as an ornament for your Christmas tree.
For the base of a standing snowman, cut a piece of plywood about 8" by 4" to be the base. Sand all pieces.
Using carbon paper, transfer the lines of the template on to the wood. Paint with your choice of acrylic paints.
Use real twigs as arms and hang mini-tree ornaments, instead of trying to cut the ornaments and arms out of wood.
Add a scarf made out of flannel to the snowman's neck.
For a 3-dimensional look, cut the penguin separately out of wood and glue to snowman after painting both.
Use blush or a pale pink for the cheeks.
If hanging, when finished drill a hole in the top of the snowman's hat. String wire, ribbon or gold cord through the holes and loop the wire.
