While the paint dries, make a scarf by cutting a piece of fleece that is 4 inches wide and 2-1/2 feet long. Cut fringe into both ends of the fleece.

Wrap a piece of fleece around the small glass block to determine the size of the snowman's hat. Cut out a piece of fleece that is 2 inches longer than the perimeter of the snowman's head, and about 12 inches tall.

Fold the fleece to make a tube and glue the edges of the fleece so that they overlap by 1 inch, leaving the tube open at the top and bottom.
