Lets get on with this snowman making! I had a square canvas that I painted a sparkly gray.

I used computer paper and made three different sized circles. I was walking around my house trying to find the perfect sized item I could use as a template. I found it in various cups. I made 5 circles in each size. This is going to help me add the 3-D look to this snowman wall art.

With my cut circles I began building the snowman. “Do you want to build a snowman?” I had to sing it while doing this, it is absolutely required. The first circle I glued down flat at the bottom of the canvas.

I put a line of hot glue down the center of this circle.

Then set an already folded in half circle on top of the glue line. Smushing it into the glue. Once the circle was attached I opened up the circle, letting it fan out more.

I did the same thing again, adding each layer to the bottom of this snowman.

The fan approach to this is what makes it adorable and appear 3D-ish.

With the bottom done, I move up to the center and then the top section. Doing exactly the same thing each time.

I had 3 different sized white spheres. They looked weirdly stacked and not very Frosty The Snowman.

Drawing the top hat and stick arms with a sharpie turned this weird thing into a cute Frosty The Snowman .

I love how this little guy turned out! I actually made something similar to this when I made 3D hot air balloon wall art for my boys bedroom.

I was worried there would not be enough color in this paper snowman art piece to make it pop. Because I only used a light gray, white and a tiny bit of black. I have to say though, I am liking the simplicity of it. This could appear a little too kid friendly and out of place in a living room but I think the colors make it feel a tiny bit more sophisticated. As sophisticated as paper art with a snowman and top hat can be.

The side view of this is what makes it look fun and really shows off the fanned out 3-D appearance. While I was making this I was joined in my “Do you want to build a snowman” singing for a little bit by my crew of littles. Then they were off to create their own projects at the art table. I create, and they create. With winter being here we spend a lot of time crafting because it is so cold outside.

Although, for the nest few weeks we have a lot of things going on, so many holiday parties, school functions and gifts to still shop for. It is a fun time of year, but it is definitely hectic.
