Many people dream of having a white Christmas but in reality, many places don’t see much, if any, snow during the holidays. Don’t let that discourage you. It doesn’t mean that you can’t still have a snowman in your front yard. After more than a decade living in Texas, my kids had never even seen a real snow and I had all but forgotten how to build a snowman, as I did in my youth growing up on the east coast. Moving to the northeast means we get lots of snow now, and each year brings more than a few opportunities to build snowmen, but that time spent in Texas means we know how to do it with or without the snow.
You just have to get a little creative and build your snowman out of something other than snow. I know what you’re thinking…
But it’s a SNOWman? What else will we build it out of?
Actually, there are a lot of great ideas, and once you know what some of them are, you’ll probably start thinking of even more on your own.
One great idea is using the rounds cut from the trunk of Christmas trees. If you don’t have access to these, you can always cut circular patterns out of thin pieces of wood and use those to build your snowmen. These adorable little decorations are fun and easy to make and they make great conversational pieces when your family and friends stop by. You can place them on your lawn, on your porch or patio or set them by your front door to greet your guests when they arrive to celebrate the holidays.
