Christmas Craft: Dangling Snowman

Dangling Snowman

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

It doesn't take a single flake to build this frosty character -- you can round him up with white foam, buttons, and ribbon.


  • 3 round objects (we used a spice jar lid, the bottom of a yogurt container, and a mason jar lid)
  • Scissors
  • Craft foam, white and orange
  • Glue dots
  • Monofilament
  • Buttons
  • Permanent marker
  • Ribbon


1. Using the round objects as patterns, cut out 2 white foam circles in each size.

2. Place one set of the circles on a flat surface, spacing them 1/4 inch apart. With glue dots, glue a 12-inch piece of monofilament across the circles as shown, then firmly press the matching circles on top.

3. Use more glue dots to attach buttons and an orange craft foam nose. With a permanent marker, draw on eyes and a mouth. Finally, tie a ribbon scarf around the monofilament at the neck, and then knot the line above the head to create a loop for hanging.
