  • Gently rough up the outside of each acorn with a piece of sandpaper. Paint acorns white, 2 or 3 coats may be needed to cover. Paint the acorn top with red paint, repeat and let dry.
  • Glue each acorn together with hot glue. Hot glue acorn top on as a hat. Use black marker, or a toothpick dipped in black paint, to dot on eyes, mouth and buttons. Use the other end of the toothpick to paint on nose with orange paint.
  • Glue the bow tie, or ribbon fashioned into a bow tie, to the front of the snowman. Glue the thin piece of ribbon to the back of the snowman as a hanger. When everything is dry, hang the snowman on a nail on the wall. Now using the snow texture paint, add some snow to the hat. Allow to dry completely.
