Clown Figure Email Print A spry clown ornament plays on the German cotton-wool Christmas figurines of the late 1800s. Martha Stewart Living, December 2006 Reviews (1) Add a Review Anna_Marie 28 Apr, 2008 I think this would work great to make vintage snowmen. Just replace small twigs, or bent pipe cleaners wrapped in brown floral tape for the arms. Leave off the legs and mount large "body" ball on some type of platform, so it will stand upright. You could dust it with crystal clear "glitter" while it is still wet, if you wanted more sparkle. The authentic, old snowmen are expensive and hard to find at flea markets. Thanks for this great craft idea!
