Winter is here, it’s December, and it’s time to start decorating for Christmas!  Although I have no chance of making a real snowman here in Arizona I still like a touch of winter in my house around the holidays.  Next time a light bulb burns out turn it into a cute snowman ornament!  This project is fun and easy and super cheap!
