USI art student Zion Riley made a life-sized Spongebob Squarepants using just the snow in his front yard over the weekend.

It's the first time in years that there was enough snow for Riley to get to work on something new.

"The last time it snowed really was in 2018 and that's when I did the Mickey and Minnie. This time it snowed a lot, so we just thought to keep the tradition going," said Riley.

We're told it took about 24 hours for Riley and his family to create the Spongebob that stands more than six feet tall. Riley says only a spray bottle, spatula, a shovel, and their hands were used to make the impressive work of art.

Pretty neat!
