15 Best DIY Snowmen Crafts Ideas – Creative Snowmen to Make!

How do you make a snowman out of household items?

The Christmas season is nearing and if you live in an area where winter is prevalent, then you will definitely see signs of the start of snow. And what better way to welcome the Christmas season with a few droplets of snow and a few snowmen and snow angels? However, if you live in a place where there is no winter or snow at all (maybe you live in a tropical country) then do not worry because you can still make your own snowman! And before you say anything, no, you do not need to buy a snowman kit or new items from the store. You can make your own snowman by repurposing or recycling some of the stuff you have at home! 

  • Pumpkin snowman. It is common knowledge that Thanksgiving celebrations come first before Christmas. So this means you will probably have a lot of pumpkin leftover or unused pumpkin decor lying around. But before you throw them away, you can actually repurpose it to make a snowman! Simply paint them white and stack them on top of each other, draw or put the snowman details (eyes, nose, scarves), and you’re done!
  • Socks. If you want to get really crafty, then get a few pair of socks, stock them with some rice or cotton ball, stack or sew them together, add some snowman details, and you’re done! 
  • Light bulbs. Do you have a few old light bulbs lying around? Did you know they can make great ornaments? Specifically snowman ornaments! Paint your light bulbs with white or clear paint, add snowman details such as face, scarf, hat, and you’re done!
  • Balls of string or twine. If you have a few balls of string or twine lying around, then you can glue them together and paint them into a mini snowman! 
  • Bottle caps. Another way to make new items from recycled materials is by getting some used bottle caps, glue them together, paint, and affix a length of string on the top for hanging. 
  • Paper. Creating your snowman from paper is definitely the easiest way and one where your kids can do and enjoy! You can either let them draw or paint their own snowman, or do a cut-out snowman piece from paper! 
  • Papier-mâché. Another easy way to make your own snowman is through a papier-mache! This can also serve as a great family Chrismas activity.
  • Popsicle sticks. Get creative with a few popsicle sticks and turn them into a snowman! You can use these snowman sticks to hang on your door!
