It’s my first year in Minnesota that I wear short sleeves in November. It’s an amazing weather! Though, I don’t fool myself. Snow will come sooner or later and I will go again through all the reasons we still live here despite the long and harsh winters.

I was looking for snowman books when I came across this really nice one. A snow woman! Why didn’t I think of this before? This is how I came up with the pine cone snow friends idea. I hope you like it and will be inspired to give it a try.
Make your own pine cone snow friends
Materials: 2 pine cones, 2, wooden beads, white paint, 2 small plastic caps, felt of two colors, white pipe cleaner, 4 mini pom poms and one regular pom pom, black marker, orange felt, glue
Step 1: Paint the pine cones and the wooden beads white and let them dry
Step 2: Glue the wooden beads on top of the pine cones. You may have to cut a bit the pine cones on top to make room for the beads
Step 3: Glue a small plastic cap on top of each wooden bead and decorate any way you want. A pom pom is an idea
Step 4: Cut two small felt strips and glue them around the neck
Step 5: Use a black marker to draw eyes and mouth. Cut a tiny piece of orange felt to use as the carrot nose
Step 6: Make arms from white pipe cleaner and glue tiny felt mittens at each end
Step 7: Use mini pom poms as buttons
