Step 2: Cut out the snowman & stick on the children's photo

Cut out the prefabricated body parts of the snowman along the contour and then cut out your favourite child's photo so that it fits perfectly into the circle marked on the snowman's head. Now glue the cut children's photo into the marked circle on the snowman's head to give him a face.

Step 3: Attach cotton wool balls & accessories

Now it's time to decorate your snowman.

To do this, first trim the cotton wool balls and then stick them to the front of the snowman. Then attach the previously coloured and cut out accessories: carrot, hat, buttons and scarf in the appropriate places.

You can use the initial image in this blog article as a guide, where you can see a picture of the final snowman.

Step 4: Attach the thread & hang up the snowman

To be able to hang up the snowman later, thread a thin thread through the hole at the top of the snowman's head. Knot it once at the bottom and once a little further up so that a loop is created.

Voilà! Your beautiful Christmas tags are ready!

Whether as a decoration in the house or as a small gift for friends and family - this cute little snowman is guaranteed to bring joy to every home.
