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?
We love to see how your crafts turn out. Did you know you can share them with us on Facebook and instagram?
We gave these old wood slices a fun and festive makeover and don’t they just look adorable? These super cute wood slice snowman ornaments are small and lightweight and hang on the tree perfectly! They look super cute and effective and we can’t wait to make a whole snowman family for our own tree.

How to make our wood slice snowman ornaments.
Take your white paint and cover the front of your wood slice and then pop it aside to dry
Use your paint markers to give the snowman a face. We added two coal eyes, a little point carrot nose and a wiggly smiley mouth.
Add any additional decoration such as our foam hat, a bow, a bobble hat or whatever takes your fancy! We love using foam instead of paper as it tends to last better year after year.
Cut off a length of ribbon and tie it into a loop, glue the loop onto the back of your snowman and once dry your adorable Wood slice snowman ornaments are ready to hang and display!
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!
This cute little shape snowman is another one that we came up with to suit both of my little ones. my son really enjoyed using the scissors to cut out his shapes and my little girl loved gluing down the shapes that i had cut out for her to build her snowman! As an added bonus my daughter was even able to identify circles after making hers – it was a very proud mummy moment! It’s scary how time flies, i remember when crafting was just her using her hands to spread paint everywhere (including the walls!) Now she joins in with ‘big kid’ crafts and is starting to recognize shapes! it’s just crazy how fast that time has passed. If you enjoy these shape crafts let us know and we’ll share some more ideas
Here’s what we used
Coloured backing card
How to make a shape snowman craft
You’ll want to start by cutting out the shapes for your snowman. We used circles for; the body, head, eyes, mouth and buttons and then rectangles for; the arms, fingers, hat and scarf and then a triangle for the nose.
Start by gluing down the main body circles of the snowman. Glue on the arms and fingers either side of the body.
Add the rectangles for the hat and scarf…
Then finish off by adding some circles for the eyes, mouth and buttons. Then finish by sticking down the triangle nose! Why not decorate the snowman some more by adding some round snowflakes or maybe some square presents?! Our snowmen are called Jingle and Ben, what did your little one name theirs?
