What You Do
- Prepare and Paint Shampoo Bottles
Fill the bottles with sand and tighten the caps. Then soak the bottles in warm water, long enough to easily remove the labels. Dry off the bottles and brush a few coats of white paint on them.
- Paint Hats
Paint the caps and tops of the bottles as shown in the picture.
- Make Scarves and Coats
Tie on ribbons or thin strips of fabric. Then glue on buttons, as shown.
- Make Faces
Glue on googly eyes and paint the dotted mouths. Then glue on a red button or an orange clay carrot for a nose. Or, make up your own face designs.Let your snowmen hold up a few books or just decorate your desk. You’ll never have to worry about them melting!
