cute craft for Christmas time/Paper Mache Snowman. I bet a Styrofoam ball would work just as well - paint it a pale beige and cover with mica glitter. Looks like a pleated book page as a collar, and a candlestick for a base.
Variations on danish Christmas paper hearts. The paper hearts and cones were originally used to hold small round cinnamon cookies, referrred to as peppernuts (if translated directly) and raisins as treats on the Christmas tree.
