Magnetic Snowman Tutorial

This "frosty" fun is great for the whole winter season and your hands won't get to cold making him either! 

Magnetic Snowman
1 - 8in. burner cover
1 - 10in. burner cover (come in a 2 pk at the $1 store)
magnets - round/flat/or strip
hot glue
scrapbook paper
glossy white spray paint
wire - 1 yd of 12 gauge

Step 1: Spray the tops of both covers with spray paint. Let dry. 

Step 2: Turn the 10" cover over. Stretch wire across the middle of the top half. Bend over the edges. 

Shape each end like a branch for the arms.....

Step 3: Create an assortment of accessories. Buttons with magnets on the back for mouth, eyes, etc. Use googley eyes if desired. Cut out a Hat, Scarf and Nose. Laminate or cover with contact paper. Attach a strip of flat magnet to the back. Create several different hats and accessories to create different looks - ex. Sunglasses, corn cob pipe, hair wigs, etc.
