DANVILLE, Vt., Jan. 23 (UPI) -- A group of five friends in Vermont said it took them 3 hours to build a 15-foot-tall snowman at the side of Route 2.

Danville pals James Beattie, Jacob Mills and Derek Chamberlin said they and two other friends spent 3 hours Sunday packing snow to create the giant snowman, which features two large sticks for arms and a nose quite a bit larger than a traditional carrot, WCAX-TV, Burlington, Vt., reported Wednesday.

"It's a box we used to hold grinding wheels, just something we had down at the farm," Beattie said. "The eyes are beef jerky cans and the mouth are Brillo pads."

The friends said they were surprised by the number of people who pulled over to the side of the road to look at their creation.

"We definitely thought people would stop, but definitely a lot more stopping than we thought would," Beattie said.

The friends said they plan to make the snowman larger if more snow falls in the area.
