  10. Wrap the brown felt around the top string into the shape of scarf.
  11. Let your snowman dry completely before picking him up.
  12. If you like, you can punch a hole through the top of his hat to hang him up, or you can apply a magnet strip to the back of his head to hang him on your refrigerator or other metal surface.
