How to Make a Jaunty Christmas Salt Shaker Snowman Decoration

About this time of year I start haunting the area thrift shop on the lookout for old salt shakers to make this Christmas salt shaker snowman. Sometimes there isn’t one old salt shaker to be found. Luckily, the dollar stores have very reasonable substitutes—like the one for this fellow.Salt Shaker Snowman
