The Snowman

I was walking out of the house when the POM bottle in the recycle bin called out to me.
I can be something, it said.   Indeed you look quite like a snowman.  And so it began.

Several coats of paint on the body, some surgery to shorten the neck, and my crochet skills used to make a hat, but the paint just wasn't covering the tennis ball.
Why not "modify a tube sock" suggested Mr. AC .
And so I did, and at Ms. AC's suggestion, crocheted a scarf.

Then I glued on some buttons for eyes and a mount, and a pin head for a nose, and called it a crafty day.  He still needs some stick arms, but I have many other projects to finish before Christmas.
