Skip the step that requires cutting the tube in half.
Cover the tube just as the above instructions state in OPTION 1, but cut 6 inches of white construction paper instead of 5 1/2 inches. Draw a snowman face on the top outside of the tube as well as on the ping pong ball. Add the buttons. When the snowman heads are finished place inside the top of the tube. The hat will rest on top, and the ping pong ball will fit inside, hiding it. The treats look like snowmen on the outside and on the inside.
This was my favorite way to make these.
