Let It Snow - Man!

So here is my Snowman. The idea came from Marth Stewart Living Magazine (December). I don't have it with me...but I think he's meant to look like a vintage, cotton decoration that were popular in the early 1900s. He was a little fiddly. Basically it's a couple of polystyrofoam balls, fuzzy pipe-cleaners, white craft glue mixed with water and tissues cut into thin strips. Martha uses cotton wool...but I didn't have any on hand, hence the tissues.
I've made...whatever the collective noun is for four snowmen...a huddle of snowmen? A frost of snowmen? A drift of snowmen? Anyway, lots of fun.
