S'more Snowman Ornament

The snack of the season!
Here's one you can't eat ... so quick and easy!

Here are the wood pieces you'll need to make one:

(1) 1 1/2" Square, (4) 1" Squares, (1) 1"x1 1/2" Rectangle
(1) 4 1/2" Wooden Mitten Cutout

Acrylic Paints: Light Blue, Black, White, Orange,
Dark Brown, Brown, Red, and
Plaid® Extreme Glitter™ Hologram and Black
Multi-Purpose Sealer

Easy Cutter Ultimate, Crop-A-Dile, Stylus, Wire Snips
Permanent Black Marker, Pink Powder Blush,
Sanding Block, Wire for Hanging

Using the Easy Cutter,
cut the rectangle in half lengthwise - this will
be the hat brim.  For the hat, cut one
of the 1" squares in half. 
 Paint these black and coat with Extreme Glitter. 

Paint mitten cutout light blue.  Sand edges.

Paint two 1" squares white and coat with Hologram glitter.
Paint the 1 1/2" square light brown for the
graham cracker.  Paint one 1" square
dark brown for the chocolate.

Lightly sand the 1 1/2" square and remove some
of the paint from the edges. 

Dip an old toothbrush into dark brown paint.

Spatter over the rectangles to create texture.
Add spatters of white, as well.

Swirl pink powder blush onto the cheeks with a
cotton swab.  Eyes are black dip dots.
Paint the nose orange. 
Paint red dip dots down the center
of the second white square (buttons).

Seal pieces and outline details with permanent marker.

Attach pieces with Tacky Glue.  Thread wire through
holes for hanging.

Paint a red hat band above the hat brim.
