another snowman craft

If you are looking for a fast and easy craft to keep
your little ones busy...or to give to mom,
These 2x4 wooden drop snowmen are just the thing.

I made them with my school class a few years ago.
We had finished a building project
and had the "drops" on hand.

Just cut all the wood the same length.
lightly sand all surfaces.
Paint 3 coats of white acrylic paint.
Eyes and mouth were made with a finger dipped in black paint.
The noses I made from a piece of felt, rolled up and glued.
Glue buttons down the front and make a fleece scarf and hat.
(don't sew, just use hot glue)
Decorate with glitter dust and glued on foamies and
you have a cute gift.  
Get the kids to write a cute Christmas Message on the back
and include the date.  
You will want to remember the year that you
and the children did this project.

Let me know if you give it a try.


  1. Donna, these little snowmen are adorable. I have taken notes and plan to make some of these in the future. If not this year, then next year, for sure! Thanks for sharing. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!! Love & blessings from NC!

  2. Melinda, I enjoyed seeing your Thanksgiving post.
    Your house looks so "Christmasy". I know you are glad that you have all the decorating behind you. Enjoy the Holiday!! Blessings to you too!!

  3. Those are so adorable. I'm not a talented painter like you are but think I could manage those. I've saved the information and will try them after the holidays.

  4. Your snowmen are so festive...I have a slightly similar one my DIL bought at a craft fair years ago. You've inspired me to make one with my youngest granddaughter! Thanks Donna!

  5. Great idea...I am passing this on to my daughter-n-law...hopefully I will get one for Christmas.:)

  6. Oh these are so cute! I'm always looking for new crafting ideas to do with my grandchildren. Thank you so much for sharing.
    Hugs my friend!

  7. Those are so cute. I may actually try this with my class!

  8. Donne, these are absolutely beautiful and great ideas. Do you have anything for the autumn season?

  9. These snowman are so cute. They have been my favorite since I was a little girl. I will be making some for next year. They will be a great gift to give. Thanks
