I got all the supplies at the Home Depot, of course!

Materials

– 1″ x 6″ x 8′ Tongue and Groove Pattern Stock Board

– 1″ x 4″ x 8′ Common or Pine Board

– Box of #8 x 1 1/4 Phillips Square Flat-Head Full Thread Zinc Coated Multi-Material Screw

– Pack #8 1 5/8 Zinc-Plated Steel Screw

– 1/4″ x 50′ Manila Rope

 Measure and mark three (3) 32″ sections from the 1″ x 6″ x 8′ Tongue and Groove Pattern Stock Board and two (2) 24″ sections plus two angled sections from the 1″ x 4″ x 8′ Common or Pine Board.

The two angled sections should be 4″ long along the top edge and 3″ long along the bottom edge of the board.

Make your cuts. You should now have (3) 32″ pieces, and (2) 24″ pieces. TIP: Smooth any rough edges using a sanding block.

Lay the (3) 32″ sections vertically side to side and run a bead of glue in the groove.

Secure the boards making sure to keep them level at top and bottom.

Measure and mark 8″ down from the top of the base on the right side and 12″ down from the top of the base on the left side. Angle one 24″ section flat across the assembled base at the 8″ and 12″ marks from the top of the base. Make sure the board overhangs the base equally on the left and right sides.

Slide the angular cut pieces underneath the attached 24″ board ensuring they are flush with the base and with the 24″ board on both sides. Secure the angular cut pieces to the 24″ board using the 1 1/4″ screw. Repeat on the other side.

Using a 1/8″ drill bit, pre-drill two holes vertically in the top and center of the Tongue and Groove boards. Screw in the two eye screws into these holes. Tie a piece of rope to each of the eye screws ensuring the door hanger hangs at the desired height on the door. Cut off any extra rope ends.

To create the snowman’s face, I picked up tester sizes of paint in white, black, pink and orange.

First tape off the “face” and paint the hat black.

Then paint the face white.

It was easy to make the face. I traced glasses to make the eyes and cheeks and a ruler to make the nose. I drew the mouth freehand.
