How to Build a Snowman
No one hates cold weather worse than I do. But when there is fresh snow on the ground, even I can’t resist bundling up and heading outside to attempt make the perfect snowman. There are three basic steps in creating a snowman. You must shape the snowballs, assemble the snowman, and decorate and dress the snowman.
The best way to build a snowman is with three balls of packed snow stacked on top of each other. To make the base, you start with a handful of snow rolled into a ball. You then begin rolling the ball through the snow. Snow will stick to the original snowball, making it bigger as you roll it. You have t
The body and head will be made the same way as the base, but proportionally smaller. Once you have made all three balls, you must flatten the top of the base a little so the body ball will sit on top of it. Typical snowmen usually have twigs stuck into the body for arms. Depending on the weather, your snowman may last from a few hours to a few days. o turn the snowball in different directions to make it nice and round. This stabilizes the snowman and gives it a smooth overall surface. You can add limbs, facial features, and clothing. You can also add a row of buttons down the front with rocks or coals. Once your snowman is complete, you can go warm your fingers by the fire and enjoy some hot chocolate. Then, flatten the top of the body like you did the base and place the head on top of it. A top hat and scarf can also be added. Nothing feels better than having your very own Frosty in your front yard. You can decorate the snowman any way you want to.
