I always love it when it is warm and dry so I can take some of my messier crafts outdoors. I have been making these clothespin snowmen for several years and I nearly always sell out. I buy the clothespins at the dollar tree. It is the cheapest place around but you do need to look at each one before painting and cull out the broken or irregular ones. I have an old table that I keep in the back yard that I use to paint or rust things on. I lay out all the pins and spray them with white paint. When they are dry, I turn them over and paint the other side.
When they are all dry, I bring them inside and using a sharpie, I dot on eyes and buttons. Some have their faces on the long piece and some on the short. See below.
