Frosty Challenge


Frosty Challenge

The team at Woodcarving Illustrated asked to see your wackiest interpretation of a snowman—and boy, did you deliver! Tons of silly submissions rolled in from around the country, and picking a winner was a challenge. See a few of our favorites below. (Scroll down to see magazine editor Kaylee Schofield’s submission.)

To learn more about Gerard Canavan’s winning carving, pictured above, see the Letters section of our spring issue. Keep making woodchips, friends!
