4 X 4 Snowman 2015

My  NEW 4 x 4 snowmen

These are actually 4 x 4 from a Fence that we took down .  I just spray painted them white

I just use these buttons below for the eyes ...and remove the back so they will lay flat

The Noise is just a simple biscuit used in wood working to join wood together
