    Cut a small nose out of orange craft foam and glue it in place. I added some dimension to my snowman's nose using a little bit of orange acrylic paint, but this is totally optional.

    Finally, cut a piece of chenille stem about 3-inches long and glue it between the two pom-poms so they look like ear muffs.

    Your snowman is now finished. Besides using this snowman as a Christmas tree ornament, you can display it on a table as is, in a fancy bowl among other glass balls, or hang it up in a window or other location using a small piece of ribbon.
