I've had such fun making these log snowmen. They're similar but each one has their own personalilty depending on the face and log size. They range from 10" to 14" tall. I started by finding 2 1/2" - 4" diameter logs that I cut into 2" slices. I used glue to connect them but a few came apart. I decided to drill a hole and use a 3/8 fluted dowel pin plus the glue. They aren't coming apart now! Originally, the first twenty or so that I made were left natural wood. I decided to lightly white wash some and wow, that looked great.
The top of the hats are from about 1" diameter branches, cut to 2 inches. The brim is approximately a 3" diameter slice cut to about 1/4" - 1/2" thick. I left some hats natural but I really liked the way they looked when I painted them black. The Rust-Oleum Ultra Cover Flat Black paint was wonderful to work with!
I used the same 3/8"dowel pins painted orange to make the nose. Small stones collected from my yard became the eyes. I used an oil based paint pen to draw the mouth. Add the scarf and they're good to go!
