This year, enlist some snowmen to direct your guests to their spots at your holiday table. These guys, with their eyes made out of coal, and jaunty stovepipe hats, will charm everyone as they sit down. Use a scrap of cloth, tissue paper, or even piece of a printed napkin for the scarf, if you don’t have any bits of crepe paper. Best news – they won’t melt! Happy Holidays!
Step 1: Paint the wooden place card stands white. Let dry.
Step 2: Print out the snowman template. Cut out snowmen and hats, cutting just inside the black line on the snowmen.
Step 3: With a dab of glue, attach the hats to the head of the snowman. Adjust the angle on different snowmen for variety.
Step 4: Cut a ¾” x ¼” strip of orange cardstock. Cut lengthwise into a triangle to make the snowman’s nose.
Step 5: Dab a tiny bit of glue onto the wide end of the nose. Stick it on the face pointing up. Let dry, then fold the nose down to stick straight out.
Step 6: Cut out a 3” x ½” piece of crepe paper. Fringe both short ends.
Step 7: Wrap the scarf around the neck and secure with a dot of glue.
Step 8: Stamp your guests names on the belly of the snowman (you could also simply write names in pen or marker if you wish).
Step 9: Slide the snowman into the base of the wooden place card stand.
