3. Didn’t have time to get new Christmas decoration? Here’s how to make some!

Use several old bottle caps, paint them white and make your army of snowmen! Glue 3 of them together on a red ribbon (from the back), add a scarf and do your magic by painting dots to make your snowman smile. Perfect fun for kids and those who feel in that way.
