Craft A Day 'Til Christmas: Day 6: Paper Lantern Snowman

Today's craft was inspired by a recent trip to the Dollar Store.  I saw these paper lanterns and immediately thought they would make a great snowman.  I assembled them according to the instructions in the package and then Eva painted on a face and buttons.
When the paint was dry, I used a hot glue gun to attach the two lanterns together.  Eva picked out a piece of fleece from my scrap pile to use as a scarf (and to cover the not-so-pretty neck).  Now he hangs out by our tree.  
The lanterns can light up too but by gluing them together, access to the one switch becomes impossible so we are leaving him unlit for now.
