Do you want to make a cost-efficient snowman decor this coming holiday? We just need some common household materials to be created with this décor. This snowman décor is easy to make and may also serve as a fun activity with a family member or friends. All you need is to pull some things on your drawer or cabinet, and you are good to go! Let’s begin!
Steps for Creating Fluffy Snowman Decor
Gather all the materials for this snowman decor from the list below:
Considerable amount of cotton
A pair of googly eyes
Toilet paper roll
Red, orange, brown and white construction paper
Small piece of red felt
A piece of brown pipe cleaner
Apply white glue on half of the toilet paper roll. Spread this evenly and use a considerable amount.
Get your cotton and wrap it around the area of the toilet paper roll with white glue on it. Put several layers on it.
Cover the remaining half of the toilet paper roll with white glue.
Get your cotton and wrap it around the part of the roll with white glue, but this time, it should be thicker than the other half.
Puff the cotton on the roll to create a good effect.
Glue the googly eyes on the thinner part of the snowman. The thinner part is the head while the thicker part is the body.
Cut a piece of orange construction paper and form it into a cone. This will be the snowman’s nose.
Stick the nose on the face of the snowman just below the eyes.
Cut a strip of red felt. Be sure that it’s long enough to wrap around the neck of the snowman. This will be his scarf. Tie the scarf and glue the intersection of the scarf so that this will not fall off.
Cut three small circles of brown construction paper. Then stick these on the middle on the body just below the scarf. These are the buttons of snowman.
Cut two 7-8 centimeter pieces of brown pipe cleaner. This will be the snowman’s arms.
Stick the arms on both sides of the snowman using hot glue.
Bend the middle of the arm in 45 degrees to create a “joint effect” for the arm.
Cut a circle and a rectangle from the red construction paper. The measurement is dependent on the size of the diameter of your toilet paper roll. Glue the rectangle from end to end to form a cylinder. This will be used to construct the hat.
Cut a small strip of white paper and stick it near the bottom part of the cylinder, but leave a small space just below this. This will be the lining of the hat.
Stick the brim of the hat (the circle) to the cylinder.
Finally, put a hole in the middle of the brim so that the head of the snowman can fit in.
Cut a piece of crochet thread. The length will depend on how long you want the string to be. Hot glue this from the insides of the head part of the snowman.
Slip the hat on the head and secure it with hot glue on the inner brim of the hat.
Hang your fluffy snowman on your tree or you can likewise display this by your window or near your fire place.
Your fluffy snowman is finally done!
The more cotton you have, the fluffier the snowman will be. You can also change some materials if you want (e.g. the pipe cleaner can be replaced with small branches or toothpicks). This is an easy all-around snowman decor that you can make for the holidays. Just be creative with the materials that you have in your own home. Enjoy!
