"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Directions:
Assemble materials before beginning. (read below and have ready). Paint a piece of toothpick orange for the nose. Cut a piece of fabric approximately 12" x 1" and fringe ends for the scarf.

Pour Ivory Snow into a bowl, add water and whip with electric beater on high about 5 minutes until doughy. With damp hands, shape soap into three graduated-size balls and a few little snowballs. Stack and secure the three bigger balls (with biggest on bottom of course) by gently pushing a toothpick halfway into the center of one ball and then pushing another ball on it until they touch.

Add twig arms, the toothpick nose, clove eyes and buttons. Tie the scarf around the neck. Make a smile with a row of cloves (or seed beads). Add a top hat, decorated straw hat or make ear muffs from a piece of chenille stem and pom-poms.

Cut a small piece of paper into a rectangular shape and print "Snowballs 10 Cents". Glue edges of a piece of string to the back of sign and hang across a twig arm. Stack snowballs beside him.

Let dry overnight. Makes one 4" snowman and six snowballs.
