The holiday season is in full swing and that means it's time to begin decorating our homes. This is one of my favorite times of the year. While I don't enjoy cold weather, I love making fun and unique crafts with my son and turning our house into a winter wonderland. We begin the day after Thanksgiving and go all out!

This year, I wanted to start a little early. In the past year, I have taken an interest in creating my own wreaths. They are a versatile craft and I've gotten pretty creative with my ideas. For this holiday season, I decided to make a snowman wreath out of materials I had around my house. A little creativity, a little innovation, and about an hour and a half later, my son and I finished our snowman. I am in love with the final product.

This wreath was not difficult to make and will add a festive feel to your home this holiday season!

Make Your Frame

  1. Using your pliers, carefully unwind your wire hangers.
  2. Bend each hanger into a circular shape. You may want to cut a part of the wire to make one or two of your circles smaller than the others.
  3. Create hooks on each end of your circle by bending the end back on itself with your pliers.
  4. Connect the hooks to secure your circle.
  5. Lay all of the circles out and decide how you would like to arrange them.
  6. Cut two medium sized pieces of floral wire.
  7. Wrap the floral wire around the circles to attach them together.

Make Your Snowman a Hat

  1. Lay your cardboard at the head of your snowman wreath.
  2. In pencil, draw the shape of your hat.
  3. Cut out your hat design.
  4. Cover the cardboard with your black material. I used an old pair of pants.
  5. Secure the material to the cardboard using tape or glue.
  6. Using left over wire hanger pieces, create a hook and attach it to the middle of your top circle. If you don't have any wire hanger pieces leftover, create a hook using your floral wire.
  7. Attach the back of your snowman's hat to the wire using packing tape or glue.

Final Touches

The snowman wreath is cute as is. However, I decided to attach an old black scarf to complete my wreath. You could also attach mittens or gloves if you would like.

Find a place to hang your snowman wreath where everyone will see it. I hung mine up in our front hallway.

Happy crafting!
