Thermocol Crafts - DIY Snowman

Thermocol craft snowman
Christmas has come a bit early to our house this year...Though I am not a Christian from childhood we have celebrated Christmas and courtesy studying abroad and in Christian schools I know more about Christmas than about some of our Hindu festivals! 
Sharing a fun and easy thermocol[Styrofoam] craft snowman
Materials required to make a super easy Thermocol craft Snowman
thermocol snowman
Thermocol Crafts
  • Balls in 2 sizes:Use thermocol[styrofoam] or plastic ball
  • Rhinestones/Beads/Buttons - to make the eyes,nose and body decor
  • Ribbon/Paper -to make a scarf for the snowman
  • Hat- optional..you can cut out a cardboard or paper hat or recycle a used toothpaste cap for it.
  • Adhesive---The glue gun is fantastic to glue Thermocol.If you use the regular white glue you need to be really patient[which few little ones are]
I stuck the 2 thermocol balls using a blob of hot glue and handed it over to my kiddo to make her version of a snowman!
Thermocol Crafts
My 6 year old used sticker rhinestones to make the eyes and nose of our snowman. My daughter just had to peel it off the plastic and stick it to the thermocol balls.At the important age of 6 years it was a big deal for her that she designed her own snowman !
Thermocol Crafts
Little ones have very definite ideas and my 6 year old insisted our snowman didnt need the conventional hat!
Thermocol Crafts
This was a family project with my mom chipping in by adding the scarves for our thermocol snowman!
Thermocol Crafts
These snowmen are very very special to me not only because 3 generations [me,my kiddo and my mom] helped make it but also because they were made with gifts & winning from blogger friends[Kitty & red polka dot ribbon from Romina; red glitter ribbon from Khalindi,pearl lace from Kelli,heart stones from Khushboo,Plastic bows from Pie Lane sponsored Indira's challenge win]

Supplies: Thermocol Balls from Itsy Bitsy,Glue Gun : electrical shop in Ebrahim Street Bangalore,Rhinestones: Big Market Sahakaranagar, Bangalore
