Here is a fun way to make a big snowman with tires.

Total Time: Couple hrs.

Supplies:

  • 10 tires: 5 big ones, 2 medium, 3 small ones, (many tire shops will give used tires away)
  • 1/2 gallon white paint
  • little bit of black paint
  • paint brush
  • drill (bits depending on size of the sticks)
  • serrated knife
  • mini wreath
  • scarf
  • 2 sticks for arms
  • tarp or paint cover
  • something orange for the nose (I used an orange flashlight)
  • gloves or mittens

Steps:

  1. Lay down a tarp or anything to paint on.
  2. Gather the tires and stack them to form a body, head, and hat.
  3. Gather paint and brushes. Brush off dirt and debris first, then paint the body and head white. Let dry.
  4. After they dry, number the tires in the back. This will help when you move them.

  6. Place the mini wreath on corner of the hat. Secure with thumbtacks.
  7. Paint the eyes and buttons.

  9. Cut material if needed for a scarf. Add the scarf. Use thumbtacks to secure it.
  10. Outline the circle where you will insert the nose. Remember you can use something else. I used an orange flashlight.

  12. Use a drill to make a hole for the nose then cut with the knife. Carve carefully. Unscrew the cap of the flashlight and insert it through the inside of the tire.
  13. Mark points for the stick arms. Use the drill and knife again. Insert stick arms in place and brush off tire debris.

  15. Add gloves if you'd like and stuff with newspaper.
  16. Enjoy your snowman! Especially if you live in the desert like me. ;)
