How cute is this simple paper snowman craft? My nephew and I made these way back before Christmas to go on our seasons wall and i completely forgot to share them, so here they are now – a bit late for Christmas but still in time for some fun winter crafting!
How to make this adorable and simple paper snowman craft
take your piece of white card and cut out a large circle to make the snowman’s body and a slightly smaller one to make its head.
Cut out some circular coal buttons, two stick arms and a scarf then glue them onto the snowman’s body.
Next take the smaller circle that will be the snowman’s head and cut out and glue on two circular eyes, a triangle carrot nose and a hat/bow/earmuffs. Finish off the face by taking a black marker and adding a dotty coal mouth.
Glue the head circle in place on top of the body and your simple paper snowman is finished and ready to display!
Winter is well on it’s way and the weather is certainly getting colder. The last couple of nights I’ve found myself waking up to put the heating on and wearing a pair of socks to bed! Some parts of the UK have even seen snow over the last few days. I do love snow, it looks beautiful and it’s so much fun to play in, we love snowball fights, building snowmen and tobogganing – there are some great hills around here. However, we live in a small village in the middle of nowhere so its not the most practical! My son is desperate for a white Christmas and with the weather being like it is at the moment it definitely seems like it could be possible. Maybe it’s time for us to stock up the food cupboards in case we get snowed in! All this talk about snow is what what inspired today’s craft, this wobbly paper plate melted snowman. Isn’t he fun?
To give the snowman that melted look, take a pair of scissors and trim around the edge of the paper plate to create a wavy pattern.
Cut out a circle for the snowman’s face (we cut ours from a second plate), then make a spring so that it can be attached. To make the spring all you need to do is cut out two equal strips of paper and glue them at a right angle. Take turns folding one strip over the other and once you reach the end glue the two loose ends together.
Give the snowman a face by gluing on two round eyes, a mouth and a carrot shaped nose.
Glue one end of the spring to the center of the paper plate and then the snowman head to the remaining end. Cut out two twiggy arms and glue one either side of the snowman’s head.
Finish off the adorable plate snowman by adding any extra melted decorations; we added a top hat, some buttons and some mittens. Leave to dry and your snowman is finished!
With it being so close to Easter bunnies are a particularity popular theme right now. My son loves rabbits anyway, his Grandma has two little ones that he absolutely adores. However, I’m pretty sure that all this bunny mania has sprung from the fact that he just can’t wait for the Easter bunny to come and hide some eggs! He’s forever asking how much longer he has to wait, so for now were busy filling the time with some Easter themed crafts – like these extra cute DIY bunny corner bookmarks.
You will need
Coloured or white paper for your bunny
Pink, orange, white and green paper
First of all you will need to make your corner bookmark. If you haven’t made one before you can find a guide on how to fold one here.
Take your bunny coloured paper and cut out two long ears. Now, take your pink paper and cut out two slightly smaller inner ears and a triangle for the nose.
Glue your bunny’s ears down on the inside of your bookmark and the triangle nose on the bottom point as above.
Use your black marker to draw on two eyes and some whiskers.
To make your carrot cut out a rounded orange cone shape and draw on some lines. Next cut out the curvey shape of the greenery as seen above. For the tail cut out a white circle.
Glue down the bunny’s tail on the top point of your bookmark. Then finish off by gluing down the carrot on the back of your bookmark under the bunny’s nose. How cute does your bunny bookmark look? We think they’re adorable!
