Snowman Craft from Foam Cups

I love making all kinds of snowman crafts. I’ve learned that you can make almost anything into a snowman!

This time I went with foam cups, though I’ve used cardboard tubes, potato chip cans, and even blocks of wood!  Pssst…if you have extra plastic spoons, you might want to try these plastic spoon snowmen!  You can also use plastic cups to make this fun lighted string!

For my snowmen, I used coordinating outfits, matching up the colors of the scarves and earmuffs. You can use whatever colors you like!

  • First, 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.

  • Second, place your foam cup upside down. Glue the scarf around the cup, leaving enough room for a face.

  • 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.

  • Finally, 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.
