A tumbleweed snowman: Sunday Stills

I decided to make a tumbleweed snowman from the giant tumbleweed I recently found in my yard. In my previous post, Giant tumbleweed in my yard, I tried to show the scale of this tumbleweed. It measured 7 feet 6 inches across!

Since it’s December, I thought I might as well have some fun with it. We tied it to a tree to keep it from blowing away. I added a smaller tumbleweed to make a head.

It’s kinda hard to see his face so I zoomed in. The branches are spaced far apart on the top tumbleweed so his face is held on with a few twist ties. Can you see his lichen eyelashes and juniper nose and smile?

  1. He’s adorable, Siobhan, and you lit him up for the night! How festive! And that is a huge tumbleweed, but I thought you guys would get some snow up there? Enjoy your winter holidays and Merry Christmas to you and your family!

    • Thanks, Terri! Yes, it’s a BIG tumbleweed. We may have a white Christmas here, but we don’t usually get as much as where your nephew lives. Keeping my fingers crossed for snow! 🤞

  2. One way to get out of disposing of nature’s litter in your yard!! Love it..We had so many tumbleweeds in South Dakota where I grew up and little to stop them.
