Snowman = Smile

I imagine we all need a few extra occasions to smile this week.

Does this cut it?

Snowman DIY

I’m finding snowmen pretty irresistible this season and we’ve barely had enough snow to patch one together.

I know you are busy.  There’s likely a lot of wrapping, cooking and possibly shopping still to do.  I promise I made this t-shirt in minutes on the way to a Halloween party when my Noah-turned-Frosty-the-Snowman decided he didn’t want to wear the big bellied costume I created.  It’s now part of his regular clothing rotation and always elicits lots of smiles (starting with Noah’s) and compliments (which inevitably makes me smile).

DIY Snowman Tee

The How-To…

  1. Find an old white t-shirt – old or new, short sleeve or long.
  2. Cut some round eyes and smile circles out of black felt, a black t-shirt or a black sock.  Cut some triangle noses out of orange felt or fabric (even a kitchen sponge might work).  Be creative if you don’t have felt or fabric on hand – markers or paint will work well…ideally you will use something permanent and machine washable.
  3. Let the kids arrange their snowman on a t-shirt and use a glue gun or fabric glue to adhere.  I just glued the short edge of the nose down so the rest could flap around a bit.
  4. Watch the smiles add up – starting with the wearer and spreading from there.

Check out my Winter Cute Pinterest board for more snowman adorableness… like an upside down snowman, snowman doughnuts and a Build-A-Snowman game.

And if you are making this shirt, you’ll need these lyrics.

  7. Its such as you learn my mind! You appear to understand a lot
    about this, like you wrote the e book in it or something.
    I feel that you can do with some percent to pressure the message home a little bit,
    but instead of that, this is fantastic blog. A great read.

    did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz
    respond as I’m looking to create my own blog and would like to know where u got this from.

  10. May I just say what a comfort to uncover an individual who genuinely understands what
    they are discussing online. You definitely know
    how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    More people ought to look at this and understand this side
    of the story. It’s surprising you are not more popular because you surely have the
    gift.

  11. I drop a leave a response each time I especially enjoy a post on a
    website or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation. Usually it’s triggered by the fire communicated in the article
    I looked at. And after this article blog topic.
    I was excited enough to drop a thought :-) I do have a couple of
    questions for you if it’s okay. Could it be simply me or do some of the comments come across like left by brain dead
    folks? :-P And, if you are writing on additional online
    social sites, I’d like to keep up with anything new you have to
    post. Could you make a list all of your community pages like your twitter feed,
    Facebook page or linkedin profile?
