To make this snowman we used 1 coffee pod and 1 styrofoam ball.
Before we attached the ball I poked an extra hole on the bottom of the coffee pod and attached a string for hanging. We then made a hat by cutting a bit of felt and then glued the long side together to form the hat.
We attached the hat, and drew in eyes, nose (sticker), and mouth. We then glued the head onto the coffee pod (we found a low heat glue gun worked best), added buttons and a ribbon for a scarf and ended up with some cute snowman!!
To make this snowman we used 3 coffee pods and threaded the string through the holes in the bottom of the coffee pods. We tied a bead along the string after each pod to give it a layer look. The kids added googly eyes, a nose and mouth and there we had another cutie snowman.
So after making our snowman the kids wanted to make a reindeer so I said sure. We figured if we glued a pompom onto the bottom of the coffee pod it looked just like a reindeer. We added some goodly eyes, poked pipe cleaner through the coffee pod for antlers and we ended up with some cute reindeer.
Now if I had planned it ahead of time, I would have painted the coffee pods brown, but since this was an on the fly type of craft we ended up with white reindeer. We will probably try this one again and paint them brown. Goodness knows I have lots of coffee pods around!!
