Felted Frosty the Snowman Craft
Having this warm and wooly snowman as a holiday decoration will help make you a jolly, happy soul! To make it, needle-felt tufts of wool roving into balls, then needle-felt the balls together to form the snowman's body. There's no magic needed to give the guy some character -- just add tiny bits of wool for facial features and the coal like buttons.
Framed Snowman Ornaments
Festive ornaments don't have to be just for the Christmas tree -- these friendly snowmen faces made from polymer clay hang in small picture frames to form fun holiday artwork.
Snowman Storybook Decoration
Cast your favorite snowman as the lead in this year's holiday scene. Carve a hole into a worn book using a crafts knife or hole saw, making sure to clamp the book to your work surface before you begin. Set a snowman figurine on top of a paper pinwheel to make a ruffled base. Tape or glue a classic winter image to the book's inside front cover to finish the decoration.
Happy Snowmen Faces Garland
This cute-as-can-be snowmen garland is sure to put a smile on your face whenever you enter the room this holiday season. These happy snowman faces are simple to craft together -- just cover foam balls with air-dry clay, give each snowman a shaped nose, and paint on details for instant character.
Festive Twine Snowmen
To beat the frosty weather, build a snowman indoors with giant balls of twine. With an assortment of sizes, you can craft an entire family of snowmen. Hot-glue the rolls of twine together to form the snowman's body. Use tacks for eyes, glittered plastic-foam balls or larger tacks for the buttons, and twine-covered wire for the accessories.
Rustic Snowman Decoration
Give your favorite Christmas character a good home this holiday. Find a favorite snowman and set it inside a pressed-tin lantern. Place the lantern on a vintage doily, then tuck greenery and berries around the lantern. Make a garland for the lantern by cutting 2-inch-diameter circles out of worn book pages or holiday craft paper. Cut 1-inch into the center of the circle, then coil paper into a rosette and glue together to hold the shape. Punch a hole into the bottom of the rosette and thread a silver string through.
Snowman Canister Covers
Dress up kitchen canisters with these cozy felted-wool snowman covers for a quick dose of Christmas spirit.
Snowman Coaster Craft
Create cute little snowman coasters to cushion holiday drinks. Cut two ovals from black felt (available at crafts stores) for the snowman's eyes, a carrot shape from orange felt for a nose, and a scarf from red. Fringe the scarf by cutting five or six slits on the end. Using our picture as a guide, adhere the pieces onto a white felt circle using fabric glue. Straight-stitch around the edges of all the pieces to secure and embellish. Using three strands of black embroidery floss, stitch a mouth using a running stitch. You also can create the mouth with a black fabric marking pen.
Snowman Table Setting
Arrange plates and silverware to look like a snowman for a festive table setting or dessert display. Use a dinner plate as the snowman's body and a dessert plate as his head. A fork and spoon serve as the snowman's arms, and a knife and square napkin combine to form the top hat. Another napkin peaks out from under the plates to make a lovely scarf, and a carrot and two gumdrops bring his face to life.
Sheet Music Snowman Ornament
Whether they're hanging on a tree or trimming a package, these little sheet music snowmen send a merry message. Cut two circles from sheet music (we suggest "Frosty the Snowman"), one slightly larger than the other. Using our photo as a guide, cut a scarf, hat, and carrot-shape nose from scrapbook paper. Outline the scraps of paper using a black pen and glue the pieces together as shown. Punch a hole in the top hat, and add a hook or paper clip for hanging.
