CHALLENGE: Snowy Surprise

Winter is finally here and people in the northern hemisphere have the chance to build a snowman in all shapes and sizes.

Two pieces of coal a top hat and a carrot are the things one usually needs to give the snowy fella a face and therefore personality.

This week, however, I want you to go a bit crazy and form a snowman's face from unusually objects! The more unfitting the better.

Canvas Size - Exactly 100x100
Colors - Max 6.
Transparency - No.
Animation - Optional.

Instead of unusual objects, I went for unusual placements.

However I overflew the 6 color limit, any suggestions to lessen the colors?

(currently; 2 shades for each object's color plus 1 for background = 9 colors)


edit:
recolored the twigs with reusing the colors from the coal. I got 6 colors except the background, thoughts?
