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.

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.

Snowman Snack Container Craft photo 3433046-1


Snowman Snack-Container Craft


Throw together this creative and simple snowman snack holder using a recycled plastic drink container. First, remove the label from the drink container. Using crafts glue, adhere a blue pom-pom to each side of the lid. Then glue each end of a black pipe cleaner directly above each pom-pom. Crumple, then roll a 1x1-inch square of construction paper into a small cone shape. Glue the paper cone onto the container using crafts glue. Tie a strip of light blue rickrack around the center of the container for the snowman's scarf. Fill the container with caramels wrapped in wax paper or other Christmas candy.

Metal-Rim Tag Snowman Ornament


Combine three sizes of metal-rim tags to create an inexpensive and adorable snowman ornament craft. Slightly overlap the tags, with the smallest on top and the largest on bottom. Adhere the tags with glue, or string them together using twine. Glue buttons or paper cutouts to the tags for the snowman's buttons, a nose, and eyes. Cut wings from construction paper and add glitter. Adhere the wings and feathers to the back of the middle tag using glue. Add a length of twine to hang the ornament.

Snowman Food Gift Box


Create an adorable snowman box for Christmas treats using a tall white gift box, clear acrylic, and red felt (all available at crafts stores). Using a large round scrapbooking punch or a sharp crafts knife (found at crafts stores), cut two circles on the front of the box, with the bottom circle slightly larger than the top. Cut a piece of clear acrylic the size of the front of the box, and attach it to the inside using a glue stick. Using pinking shears, cut a 6-inch-long piece of red felt for the scarf and a 2-inch-long strip and square for the hat. Adhere the felt pieces as shown using crafts glue. Place three dot stickers in the middle of the bottom circle for buttons. Fill the box with sugar cookies or other holiday goodies.

Pom-Pom Snowman Figurine


It must be snowing pom-poms -- this frosty figure is made from a stack of three. Stack three pom-poms for a snowman shape. Add a needle-felted nose, earmuffs, a felt scarf, and glittery arms for personality.

Simple Snowman Snow Globe


Turn a tabletop into a sparkling winter wonderland with a snowman ornament (this cute guy could be made, too, with a large white bell and two small green bells, a wooden circle, wire, paper, glitter, and paint pens) and a bell-shape cloche. Set the ornament on a layer of fluffy faux snow. Embellish the cloche with rhinestone gems that look like flakes falling down the glass. Cover the scene with the cloche, and finish by scattering snowflake confetti around the arrangement.

Snowmen Gift Tags


Stitched from cozy felt, these sweet snowmen can serve as gift tags or ornaments.

Snowman Ornament


With painted snowflakes and a shapely snowman, this ornament ensures it's always a snowy day. Use a pencil to trace a snowman design on a blue ornament. Use acrylic paint to fill in the design, adding little white dots for snowflakes. When dry, apply two coats of varnish and hang on a tree or use to adorn a gift.

Frosty the Snowman Finger Puppet


Making these adorable finger puppets is a simple, no-fuss project that will create hours of entertainment for kids and adults. (Bonus: They can be used for decorations after the puppet show ends.) Wrap felt rectangle around a dime coin wrapper and glue in place. Glue a white wooden bead on top of the felt-covered coin wrapper and let dry. Draw the snowman's face on the bead and use a piece of felt to make the hat; glue in place. Cut a small strip of felt to fashion a scarf and glue small pom-poms as buttons. Poke two holes in the middle of the torso and use a brown chenille stem to make arms.

Felted Snowman Pins Craft photo 3433053-1

Craft these felt pins to embellish your Christmas gifts or to don throughout the snowy season.

Trimmed Tins


Tins lying around the house can be used as tidy treat containers, gracious gifts, and even delightful decorations.

Fabric Snowman Wreath


This friendly snowman replaces a traditional evergreen wreath and will greet guests with a smiling face on your front door. For the face, sew together two circles of white fleece, stuffing polyester fiberfill in between. Cut the sleeves from an old flannel shirt, and sew them together, making a tube. Cut across an 18-inch straw wreath (where the bottom of the design is) and pull the sleeves gently onto the wreath, filling the empty spaces with fiberfill. Stuff knit gloves or mittens with fiberfill and attach at the bottom of the wreath. Pin the head to the top of the wreath and tack the scarf in place. Glue any desired greenery to sections of the wreath and hang on your front door.

Snowman Earrings


Fashion a winter style statement with snowman earrings. Assemble three different-size round crackle beads onto a head pin in the order shown, starting with clear beads for the snowman body and end with two flat black beads for a top hat. Using round-nose pliers, make a loop above the last bead. Cut excess wire close to the loop. Attach the loop to a 4-6 mm O-ring (available at crafts stores) or to an earring finding.


Editor's Tip: Make just one beaded snowman for a zipper pull by attaching a lobster-claw clasp instead of an earring finding.

Clay Snowman Christmas Ornament


These oven-baked clay snowmen can double as Christmas tree ornaments and gift tags. For the eyes and mouth, roll small balls from black clay, place on a baking sheet, and press to flatten slightly. Use small amounts of orange clay to make tiny carrot noses (approximately 3/4-inch long).


Bake the eye, nose, and mouth shapes on a cookie sheet according to package directions and let cool. Roll a 1/4-inch thick slab of white clay onto waxed paper; use a cookie cutter to cut circles. Use the photo for inspiration to decorate the snowmen's faces. Poke a hole in the top of each head with a toothpick, making it large enough for a chenille stem. Once the snowman is finished, bake according to instructions. Thread a chenille stem through each hole; twist ends to secure.
