It is easy to make a fabulous snowman by following three important steps. The first step is having the right snow. Not all snow is the same. Snow that is too wet or too dry does not make good snowballs. Perfect snow will form a snowball easily when cupped in your hands. Once you have the perfect snow, the next step is rolling it into a gigantic snowball. Proper rolling technique insures that your snowman is jolly and round, and not ugly and cylindrical. You must rotate the ball as you roll it to get big, fat snowballs. The final step to making an incredible snowman is accessorizing. Nowadays, accessory kits are available that include a fake carrot nose, buttons for eyes and even a black top hat. Of course, many people still like to use decorations and old clothes from home to make their snowmen one of a kind, unique creations. Either way you choose to go; a face, arms, a scarf and a hat are necessities for every respectable snowman. Following these three fundamental steps will ensure that you have a spectacular snowman that is a true masterpiece.
