    What you need:

    1. a bucket of GOOD sand*
    2. a bucket of water
    3. a selection of miniature decorative elements - natural or otherwise - for facial and clothing features
    4. photoshop (or similar photo manipulation application)

    Step 1
    Using the sand and water, make three South Texas Snowballs sized big, bigger and biggest

    Step 2
    Gently position the three balls on top of one another

    Step 3
    Decorate in traditional (or not!) snowman fashion - i.e. shells for eyes and/or buttons; twigs for arms; seaweed for hair, etc.

    Step 4
    Shoot three photos: 1.)a closeup of the snowman, 2.)a group shot of your family and 3.)a generic beach photo - (here's one of those you can use, complete with scale-clarifying seagulls -- royalty free)

    Step 5
    Use photoshop (or similar application) to enlarge the sandman and merge the photos. Make that sucker as big as you like!

    Bonus Tip

    Snowmen are very rarely if ever created from perfectly round snowballs. Your miniature sandman will read better if your balls are sloppy and lopsided.

    Advantages: Requires hardly any equipment, very little sand, skill, experience or artistic talent. Heck -- you don't even have to be on a beach.

    If you are not a Photoshop wizard -- or on good terms with one -- the people are going to make your efforts look puny indeed.
