I imagine we all need a few extra occasions to smile this week.
Does this cut it?
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).
- Find an old white t-shirt – old or new, short sleeve or long.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
