Decorate Your Home for Winter With These Fun Snowman Crafts

Making snowman crafts is one of the best ways to prepare for winter decorating and gift giving. I believe these snowmen crafts are so popular because they have such a long display period: Start displaying your snowmen right after Halloween and leave them up until the end of January!

Crafty Morning shares how to make the beautiful snowman wineglass decoration above.

1. Olaf Finger Puppet

Imagine how the kids will love reading an Olaf story or watching the Disney movie, Frozen, with their own little Olaf finger puppet!

2. Olaf Sock Snowman

Isn't this sock version of Olaf cute? I imagine you could make a whole family of snowmen by using different-sized socks. Infant socks for tiny ones and larger sizes for bigger snowmen.

3. PVC Candle Cover

You know how we have these electric (or battery operated) candles at Christmas time? Usually, we'd set them in a window or on the mantel, but they aren't as unique as they could be. Little Miss Celebration comes to the rescue with an attractive snowman cover you can create for the candles!

4. Clothespin Snowmen

This is a great Christmas preparation activity to do with the kids. The clothespin snowmen are simple to make, and a bonus is that the supplies are inexpensive.

5. Salt Dough Snowmen

Salt dough is a great inexpensive clay to use for making snowmen, especially if the kids are the ones putting them together.

6. Olaf Headband

You get two great Olaf projects when you go to EAST COAST MOMMY for this headband project. Find the button for a template download at the end of the article. They also share an Olaf costume project!

7. Olaf Printables

Imagine all the fun that you and the kids will have making different Olaf snowmen. Find the printable Olaf snowman sheet at The PURPLE PUMPKIN. I think it would be even more fun to print it onto clear cling film and then create fun winter scenes with Olaf featured on your window or glass door.

8. Snowman Sentinel

Who better to watch over you while you prepare for Christmas than a group of watchful snowmen?

9. Yarn Snowman

You'll use three sizes of Styrofoam circles for this yarn snowman. Alternatively, you can cut three circles from a sheet of Styrofoam instead of buying the pre-cut circles to create a custom snowman. The larger the circles, the larger your snowman.

10. Pillow Case Snowman

Make a quick and easy snowman pillow to set on the floor near the Christmas tree. You could also place it on a corner of the sofa or use it as a Christmas decoration on your bed. It'll be sure to make you smile whenever you see it!

11. CD Snowman

Make and Takes shares this attractive snowman project you can do to upcycle items you have around the house. I love all of the glitter, as it makes it look more festive.

12. Quick Luminaries

If you want to make quick luminaries or need a paper project for kids to make, this snowman is the answer.

13. Paper Snowman

I love the mittens and boots on this paper snowman. Let the kids decorate the mittens to make their version of the snowman.

14. Build a Snowman

This is just the cutest idea ever. Now, the little kids can build (and take apart) a snowman many times a day. The pieces are made using large craft foam sheets, and the kids simply need to brush water on the pieces to make them stick to the window or bathroom walls.

15. Yarn Balls Snowman

Make the yarn balls as shown at CRAFT goodies. Then, make the wire arms and hat to complete the snowman. The guide will tell you how to make everything.

16. Snow Pops

These snow pops look good enough to eat, but don't do it! They are made out of salt dough, so they will keep for years to come but taste terrible in your mouth.

17. Snowman Swag

Take a long athletic tube sock with a few craft supplies, and you'll get a really cute snowman swag! These look adorable and would be great in the home.
