Paint Stirring Snowmen

1 paint-stirring stick
Tempera paint; white, black and orange
Strip of Christmas or winter fabric for the scarf
Blush make-up for the cheeks
Small strip of thin wood for the hat brim
Hot glue gun or Elmer's glue
Heavy string or yarn to hang ornament
Bit of greenery or a bell for hat decoration

Using a clean new stirring stick, paint the majority of the stick white, leaving some space at the top to paint black for the hat.
Paint the top of the stick and small strip of wood black.
When all the paint has completely dried, glue the black strip of wood to the hat.
Use the Tempera paint to make the face and buttons.
Tie the material around the narrowest part of the stick, which is the neck of the snowman.
OPTIONAL: Glue some decorative greenery, holly, or bell to the hat.
Glue the yarn to the back of the hat forming a hanging loop.
Let dry overnight.
