    This is a delightful craft for teachers to do with children ages five to seven years old or a fun snowman project for parents to do at home with their children. Remove the Coffee-mate label from the white plastic creamer bottle. Cut at least five or six tiny black pieces of felt into square shapes. Glue these black square pieces onto the face of your Coffee-mate bottle. This will be your snowman's mouth. Cut a small, long triangle shape out of the orange piece of felt and glue this above the snowman's smile. Cut two medium size pieces of black felt into square shapes. Glue the eyes slightly above the orange triangle nose on the snowman's face.

    Take your red piece of felt and cut out a scarf to glue onto the snowman. The scarf can be cut as long as 11" long or a little bit shorter if you like. Cut small lines on the ends of the scarf, to really make the scarf, actually look like a scarf with fringe. If you prefer, you can tie a ribbon around your snowman with a small card attached to it with a personalized note written for a person you are giving it to.

    Next, glue the three small black buttons in a row on the snowman's body/middle/section. Then puncture a small hole on each side of the snowman and insert the brown-colored pipe cleaners for each of his arms. Bend each pipe cleaner inward on the inside of the snowman's body to secure them.

  1. Did you paint the outside of the bottle? My CoffeeMate bottles are clear.
