Cap Those Festive Cupcakes With a Mini-Snowman Topper!

Posted by Jordan Hanley

Part of Snowman Week in Sarah Goldschadt’s Craft-A-Day, mini-snowman cupcake toppers are the perfect way to while away a chilly winter afternoon with the young people in your life. Get creative with your snowman topper—make a family of snow-people for Frosty, or have a contest to see who can make the most interesting outfit! Don’t forget the corncob pipe, and why not add a scarf and perhaps some icy jewelry while you’re at it? Plaid is all the rage in snowman fashion these days!

The possibilities are endless with Craft-A-Day’s simple handmade blue prints for projects for each day of the year.

Happy holidays, and get crafting!
