Snowman Crafts

Nothing says winter like snowman crafts. Build them inside, out of the cold.

Snowmen come in all shapes and sizes. They can be made from a variety of materials, including recycled items, Paper mache, polymer clay, wood,  fabric, and even wool.

Find out how to make them, right here.

This Frosty is an interesting advent calendar. His nose pivots around to count down the days until Christmas.

With some basic sewing skills, you can make this. 

Use canvas material, stuffed with a thin layer of fiber fill. 

After sewing, the material is painted. Let dry and then add the nose.

Glue the felt holly leaves and plastic snowflakes to the hat.


Want a bit more of a challenge?
