Time For The Solar Snowman

Winter is in the air....time of the snowman.   This is a Christmas take on my solar snowmen.  I was trying to use up scraps of wood from our renovation project.  We built on dormers and we had some scrap OSB left over.  Normally this stuff would be thrown out but I wanted to see what I could do with it.  Poke around my blog and check out my other scrap wood projects!   I will just post pics.  Hope you enjoy the visual tutorial.  Oh, you can find my solar bears H E R E !

This is the general pattern.  I freehanded for length and width to make small, medium and large.

I am going to look for some type of hanging light for these guys too.  This was all I could find at the time this the post.
