This darling snowman and snow woman make the perfect couple. All bundled up for a cold winter’s day, and so easy, younger kids can make them too!

By Amanda Formaro

What You Need:

(For Each Snowman)

  • 1- 1 1/2″ diameter wooden ball
  • 1- 2 1/4″ diameter clay pot
  • 2 buttons
  • gold ribbon
  • child’s sock
  • material or mitten scrap
  • white craft or hot glue
  • black finetip marker
  • small and large paintbrushes
  • acrylic paints in white, orange and pink
  • clear coat spray

What You Do:

Place newspaper down on work surface. Turn clay pot over and glue wooden ball to bottom of pot. When glue is dry, use large paint brush to paint entire the outside of the clay pot and the entire wooden ball with white paint. Let dry and apply a second coat.

Cut the foot end off of the child’s sock. Create a brim by folding up the cuff of the sock, then position the cuff of the sock onto the “head” of the snowman (see photo). Glue the brim in place. Tie a piece of gold ribbon around the top of the hat and fringe the top with scissors. Adjust the fringe edges with your fingers until they look the way you want.

Tie a strip of material or mitten scrap around the neck to fashion a scarf. Glue in place if desired. Glue two buttons to the front of your snowman. With black fine tip marker, dot on eyes and mouth. Use a small paint brush to apply orange paint for a nose and gently dab on a thin amount of pink for the cheeks.
