DIY Fluffy (Frosty)- The Snowman

There can't be winter decoration without our beloved Frosty the Snowman....Right???
Here's my version of him.....
I made this "Fluffy" Frosty with my son for his school project......
Snowman
We made this one out of Shaving cream and Elmer's Glue (Fevicol can do too)......
Saw it initially at Kraftykid .....
I made mine a little differently.....
I chose a Blue construction paper as a base.....
Then I pasted a white Snowman paper outline on the blue paper to make it easy 
for my son.....
Then we just used a candy stick to spread the shaving cream and Elmer's glue 
mixture on the white cutout till we covered it completely.....
We also spread some mixture along the bottom of the paper.....
When the mixture was still wet, we inserted the hat and a nose made out 
of construction paper........
We also made a smile from peppercorns....... :)
We added some shiny buttons on the front and a patterned paper scarf........
We also added googly eyes....my son's favorite!!!
The picture of the wet snowman looked like this.....it looks really uneven....
when you are making this, remember to add the scarf in reverse, as we will bend it forward to make the scarf.....

As it dried, we were able to see a smooth form to the structure.....
When it dried completely (overnight drying required), we glued the scarf 
together.....I cut a little fringe at the edge of the scarf......
Finally, my son drew some snowflakes and white dots on the blue paper 
to show snowfall........
We loved the overall effect of our "Fluffy"- The Snowman........
My son was so proud to take this to school........
His joy made me so happy :D
