Handmade Holidays: Scrap Wood Snowmen Do you woodwork? Chances are you have a box of leftover odds and ends of wood that can be turned into something cute for the holidays. My husband has a huge box of wood pieces that he throws leftovers into after he’s done making a project. These pieces can range from tiny little scraps to half a two by four. But for some reason he had a bunch of pieces that were all about the same size left over from making something and we came up with these cute little snowmen.We used three pieces of wood with two being between two and three inches long and about an inch and a half wide and maybe a quarter to a half inch thick.
