Step 1: Select gourd Select a bottle gourd that has a smaller bulb on top for the snowman's head and larger bulb on bottom. Step 2: Wash and dry Remove the stem at the top and wash the gourd, scrubbing off dirt with a pot scrubber. Step 3: Fill in holes Fill in holes and other indentations with wood putty and then sand with fine sandpaper. Step 4: Paint the hat Paint a hat on the top of the gourd. Remember to turn the gourd and paint all sides. Then paint the rest of the gourd white and let it dry completely. Step 5: Paint the face Paint black charcoal eyes, an orange carrot nose, and charcoal dots for a mouth onto the upper bulb. Then add a colorful scarf around the neck where the upper and lower bulbs meet. Step 6: Create the body Dab on a few dots of black paint for buttons along the lower bulb. Paint on mittens or drill two holes on either side of the body and insert small twigs for arms. Step 7: Finish Complete the snowman with clear acrylic spray finish. If the gourd doesn't stand on its own, place it on top of a small grapevine wreath. Did You Know? "Snowman" is golf slang for scoring an eight on a hole, due to its similar shape.
