Do you find yourself looking for quick projects to make during the holiday season? 

Creating a small melting snowman statue from rocks, can be used as holiday decorations, a stocking stuffer or what I’m going to be doing… putting it into a clear bag with a tag and leaving it out in public as an abandoned art piece.
