I know Christmas is a bit divisive. It brings out the best and the worst in people. I love it though, mostly because its a great excuse to make shamelessly crafty and kitsch things all in the name of the season.

These snowmen are really easy to make and are cute to boot. They require minimal materials and should be doable for about a 6 year old or younger with some help.
