A Wee Chilly Willy

I made wee chilly willy at the weekend… and I love him to bits, turned out better than I expected lol…. so tomorrow he will be coming to work with me and can sit on my desk alongside Frosty, the snowman I made last year πŸ™‚

I made him much the format as last years, but chilly will is much bigger than wee frosty πŸ˜‰

All you need to make him is a couple of polystyrene (styrofoam) Balls, glue and some glitter.. then some odds and ends to make his wee face etc

In fact! I actually made a ustream video on how I made him, think its a 2 part-er because I lost my connection half way through the recording.
