Snowman Glove Dryer

I'm just realizing I have yet to post my craft from the "winter" week over at SoYouThinkYou'reCrafty - I was the Snowman Glove Dryer:

Winter and snow - love it.  But what's the most annoying thing about winter?? - all those wet hats/gloves/boots thrown about the entryway.  Well, bring on winter because this year I'm ready with the Snowman Glove Dryer!

 This is a cost-friendly, FUNCTIONAL craft.  Made of inexpensive PVC pipe, there is a hole in the bottom that allows hot air to flow up and through the arms, legs, and top to quick-dry hats, gloves, and boots.
Operation is easy - simple place the Snowman Glove Dryer over a vent and let the warm air do the rest!
And not only does it dry hats/gloves/boots - it gives them a place other than scattered on the floor - perfect!

So, I didn't really do a tutorial - feel free to email me with any questions you have.  Basically it's a big PVC tube with four holes drilled in the side for four smaller tubes to fit into - then those smaller tubes have tiny holes drilled in them so the air will flow better.  Thanks for following through the whole competition - finals are next week!!

That is so cute. I wish I lived somewhere that got snow so I could have one.

It's so adorable! I might make one of these for my nephew...he would love it!

This is such a great idea. We live in the land of snow and could so use these in our house. We'd have an army of snowmen though. My son's preschool could use them too.
