How to build your own LEGO snowman [Instructions]

Building a convincing minifig-scale snowman is a challenge, even for the pros. We’ve seen a few odd ones in previous LEGO Advent Calendars, that’s for sure. But once we go to a more medium-scale, Tiago Catarino shows us that it only takes a few common pieces to build a snowman perfect as a seasonal decoration, ornament, or something to keep around all year long.

Tiago clips on brown plant stems to create a pair of adorable emoji-esque arms. But by far, my favorite detail has to be the sculpting of the snowman’s scarf. Thanks to a red 1×2 wedge-bow brick, the scarf gives the illusion of draping down perfectly.
