AND, nothing says winter like a cute little snowman. At the time I started making some tin can men for my front porch, there was no snow in sight, which was weird for this time of year. It appeared my tin can men would be the only “snowy” things around at Thanksgiving...
To make your own tin can man, you need:
three cans of decreasing size per man (to make the melty man, you’ll need some white poster board too)
white spray paint
black craft paint
red and green buttons
red and green felt
First, de-label your cans and wash them thoroughly. Nothing like some caked on beans to make your snowmen much too smelly.
Stack your cans upside down, smaller on top of larger, to get an idea of the layout for each snowman. I wanted to use my tune can, but it wasn’t really working with the other snowmen, so I decided to make a partially “melty man.”
Use E6000 to draw a ring of glue around the bottom if the larger can so that the next smaller size sits right on the glue ring.
Using **hot glue, adhere black buttons for a smile and eyes.
Adhere green and red buttons for the clothes.
Now, simply glue it right onto the snowman where you want it to be.
Now paint your top hat black with craft paint.
