If you’re putting away your holiday decorations already, you might need a cute little something to put out to help you enjoy the rest of the winter. This framed snowman family from Child Made is so cute, and easy enough for anyone to recreate. And of course, you can personalize it for your own family (including pets, if you like!).  This would make a fun gift or a good project for kids to make. [how to make a snowman family picture]
