Christmas Craft: DIY Snowmen Ornaments

DIY BEAD SNOWMEN ORNAMENTS

We have a special place in our holiday hearts for Frosty the Snowman, or any snowman for that matter. There’s something so playful and magical about building a snowman with our kids every winter.

These DIY snowman don’t require gloves, or coats. In fact, you don’t even need snow. These adorable DIY snowmen ornaments are made from wood beads. If you’re looking for a fun afternoon craft, or a gift for the kids to make teachers and friends, try these cute DIY bead snowmen.

Materials:

Directions:

Step 1: Draw buttons, a nose, mouth, eyes and cheeks on the beads. We tried Paint Pens, and those worked as well; however the ink bled with the grain of the wood sometimes, so the paint and paintbrush method worked better for us.

Step 2: Apparently finger pulls meant for doors make the best mini snowman hats. You can get creative with other shaped beads, or felt for the hat if you don’t want to drill anything. If you don’t mind the power tool step, drill a hole in the top of the Finger Pull in the center.

Step 3: Cut suede cord, and tie a knot at the bottom, and begin to stack the beads, bottom first, working your way up to the head. Once all three beads are on, add the hat, and then tie another knot. Next, wrap a loop around the top, and tie another knot.

Step 4: Cut small strips of fabric straps, and wrap between the head and body for a scarf.

Step 5: Gift to friends and family!
