Here’s what we used

  • Clean cardboard tp rolls (x2 or 3)
  • Paper (white, brown, black and orange)
  • Ribbon
  • Thick cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Glue/double sided tape

How to make our cute paper snowman craft

Start by taking your tp roll tubes and cutting them down to three different lengths. A small one for the head, a medium one for the centre of the body and a large one for the base of the body.

Next take one of your tp roll sections and cut out a strip of white paper the same height as the tube and wide enough to wrap around it. Add double sided tape to the edges of the paper and then secure it around the tube.

Repeat the previous step with the remaining two tp sections until your snowman is completely white. Use your double sided tape to attach the three tubes together as above.

Cut out two stick arms and glue them in place inside the middle tube.

Next cut out and glue on your facial features and some buttons. We cut ours from coloured paper and then used our acrylic paint markers to add the details.

Add any other additional decoration such as our foam hat or ribbon scarf. Then finish off your snowman by cutting out a circular shape from your thick card and sticking it to the bottom of the snowman to help it stand. Aren’t they just the sweetest?

Take your roll and chop it down to your desired height. Next take your pink card and cut out a strip the same height as your roll and wide enough to wrap completely around it. Glue the card around the roll.
