One of my all time favorite things to make during the winter months are snowman crafts. You can make almost anything into a snowman!
This time I went with foam cups, though Iâ€™ve used cardboard tubes, potato chip cans, and even blocks of wood! Â Pssst…if you have extra plastic spoons, you might want to try these plastic spoon snowmen! Â You can also use plastic cups to make this fun lighted string!
Snowman Craft from Foam Cups
For my snowmen, I used coordinating â€œoutfitsâ€, matching up the colors of the scarves and earmuffs. You can use whatever colors you like!
This is a fun snowy day craft the kids will love. They are easy to make and fun to display.
You will need:
- Foam cups
- Medium pom poms
- Pipe cleaners
- White craft glue
- Black marker
Cut a 1-inch wide strip of felt using the full length of the felt sheet. Fringe the ends with scissors by cutting 4 or 5 slits at each end.
Place your foam cup upside down. Glue the scarf around the cup, leaving enough room for a face.
Cut triangles from orange felt and glue them to the face area.
For the earmuffs, cut a pipe cleaner in half. Bend it around the top of the snowman and trim the ends so that they hang over by about 1/2-inch.
Trim one side of a pom pom to make it a little flatter.
Glue to the pipe cleaner on the side of the snowmanâ€™s head. Repeat for the other side.
Use a black marker to add eyes. You can add eyebrows if you like as well! I always do because it adds to their cute expressions and gives them character.
Hope you have fun!
