Mini Snowman Christmas Stocking Craft Kit
Self adhesive is great
We did this craft in a church club setting with 10 first and second graders. They made some changes to personalize them, but were able to follow the directional pictures with minimal help. The self-adhesive pieces kept them busy as 1 leader used a glue gun for the remaining few pieces. It worked great.

Adorable but can really test your patience!
When I buy a craft project for my daughter's class, I always put one together as a sample before I take them in for the children to make. I am so glad I did that because these little snowman stockings are a royal pain to make! I know there is no way those children would have the patience to sit there and try to get the backing off of each piece. After a couple minutes I finally got the backing off the snowman and then started on his scarf but eventually I gave up. The pieces are felt so when you try to peel the sticker off the back, it tries to peel the whole thing off the back. There needs to be a pull tab or something to help get a grip of the part you need to pull. I just cannot get my fingernail between the two to get them apart. I love the crafts that come with the sticker adhesive already on them but this is one craft that I wish didn't have it. I am going to get out my glue gun later and hope that the back is not too slick to stick to the hot glue. Other than that, they are very cute! A little smaller than I was expecting but that was my error. If you have the patience to sit there and deal with these little stockings, then I would recommend them but if you don't, then I would pass them by...

These are cute but difficult to assemble!
These snowmen stockings are adorable, but the backing that is supposed to peel off, does not peel off 75% of the time. This means you have to rip the backing off entirely & glue the pieces. Lots of work!

not very good self adhesive
I made these with my 4-year old daughter to use for our Christmas dinner. We placed silverware in them to go with the place setting.We received lots of compliments. The self-adhesive was nice, but did not hold very good. Some pieces came off easy after a couple days. The button were not self-adhesive and we use school glue, but the felt kind of soaked it all up and they came off easy too. After trying different types of glue.The glue dots or hot glue gun worked best. After everything said and done we properly put the pieces together twice.
