Once There Was a Snowman

For the last three years, my friend Amanda has given us a snowman kit for Christmas.  The first year, it was your traditional Frosty, the second year, a pirate, and this year a cowboy.  Here's what you need to start the tradition with your own family:
Classic Frosty:
Basic black top hat (Partyland)
Orange wooden carrot
2 black coal eyes and 4 black coal circles for smile 
(Roberts-She used wooden circles painted black with dowels glued on ends to stick into snowman)

Pirate Snowman:
Pirate hat (Partyland)
Golden hoop earring glued onto wooden dowel (Partyland and Roberts)
Hook (Partyland)
Striped scarf/belt
Eye patch glued onto wooden dowel (Partyland and Roberts)
Re-use eyes, nose, and mouth

Cowboy hat (Partyland)
Mustache (Roberts)
Re-use eyes and nose
