Who doesn't love a snowman in the winter!

 It's that time of year again. The snow is going to be falling soon and you know what that means! It's going to be snowman building time! Breakout the parkas, mittens, hats and boots and gear up!

Of course building a snowman is the easy part. But why not take that snowman up a notch and make it unique and fun! Well I'm going to give you a few ideas that may help brighten up that "corncob pipe and button nose with two eyes made out of coal" (yes I just versed Frosty the Snowman lyrics)

Let's use some color!

The snowman this year doesn't need to be just that plain old white color any longer! Break out the food coloring and a spray bottle and you can create the most unique snowman on the block! Can't you just see "Frosty" with creative shirts, pants and even jewelry? You could also make the most unique facial features. And who would have guessed you can do this all with food coloring?

All you have to do is fill a spray bottle with water and a few drops of food coloring, shake it really good, then use it just like you would a bottle of spray paint.

"Frosty" is going to colorful and unique for sure this year!


 Now I know what you are thinking, carrots for the nose or grapes for the eyes.... yea but that is so traditional! Let's use some bird friendly munchies to decorate the snowman this year. That why you don't have to launch a clean up mission for the front yard once Mr. Snowman has melted away.

Use things like a corncob for the nose, nuts for the mouth and eyes and even sprinkle some seeds on the snowman's head for some awesome hair. And once the snowman melts the birds will take it from there. You can hold all of these edible creations in place just by using barbecue skewers.

Think outside the box and use props!

 Never just stop at the eyes or the smile when it comes to decorating your snowman this year. Go on a treasure hunt in your attic, basement and even garage and dig up some things that can withstand a little wetness. Think things like old suitcases, sports gear and even old Halloween costumes. The sky is the limit when it comes to decorating "Frosty" this year!

Why not make him an animal?

 Who said a snowman had to be the standard three ball shape? You can really go all out and dig up some old sawhorses and make "Frosty" into any four legged animal you desire. Get creative and make a horse or zebra. You could even make a life like image of the family pet. Get creative with that food coloring and put stripes and designs all over! You could even make a huge cow in the front yard! Use that food coloring and make any animal you want.

All you need to do is sculpt the body around the sawhorses. Start with the top beams, add the head and pack the snow around the around each of the legs. And presto, animals in the front yard this year!
