To start with you will need some red and white felt, q-tips (or pom poms or tiny bells), wooden beads (with or without painted faces) a cork and a screw. Cut a long strip of red felt start with for the scarf and a red triangle for the hat. Cut fringe on the ends of the scarf. Next cut two matching free form pieces of white felt for snow. Finally cut the tips of several Q-tips off past the stick part (but save the stick, they are useful for stir sticks or a number of other future crafts).
Attach the head (wooden bead) to the cork using the screw (a dollop of hot glue under the bead is helpful here to). Next glue on the hat and scarf. You could stop here but we wanted to make a land scape for this cork person.
