Easy, Inexpensive Stackable Snowman

This Snowman is so cute and simple to make. Those of you who are artists with enamel paint can go wild with these little guys. As you can see, I'm no da Vinci, but the great part about this craft is you don't have to be to make something really fun.

All you need is three covered candy dishes from your local dollar tree and some enamel paint. Remove the lids from two of the candy dishes and stack. Using your enamel paint, color in his face, hat and buttons. What could be easier than that?

Now, you will want your paint to air dry. The manufacturer usually recommend 21 days of air drying for the paint to set up. So get on this craft soon, so it will be ready to use by the holidays.

Place at a hot drink station with mini marshmallow, sugar and powdered creamer. Use it as a table centerpiece, filling each section with a different nut or mint. Buy several and allow children to paint their own.

Here's something fun to do with this little snowman. Place marshmallows in one section, fun sized chocolates in another, and finally, graham crackers in another, for a Smores party.

If you give these as gifts, I would suggest using the lids on all and allowing the receiver to stack it themselves.

Let your imagination run wild.
