Christmas is around the corner and it's time to decorate! Homemade craft decorations are my favorite because they add a special touch to the house. This simple snowman decoration is the perfect family craft activity!
Make together and use it to decorate your house, or give it away as a gift (perhaps inside a tin of our delicious Christmas cookies?).

I have included step by step instructions for this craft, as well as pictures for each step! Happy Crafting!
Step 1: Prepare all the materials from the list:
- Hot glue
- Concrete glue
- 2 medium button of the same color (any color will do)
- 3 pieces of black medium button
- Craft scissors
- A piece of ½ centimeter thick ribbon
- Red, blue, green and white sponge paper
Step 2: Trace two circles on a piece of white sponge paper. Take note that one circle should be bigger than the other.
Step 3: Cut both traced circles.
Step 4: Concrete glue both circles on a piece of red sponge paper. The two should stick side-by-side to form the whole snowman figure.
Step 5: Cut the red sponge paper but make sure that you have a small excess border on it. This should highlight the white body of the snowman.
Step 6: Cut a strip of red sponge paper and glue it on the neck of the snowman, creating a wrapped neck effect. This is his scarf.
Step 7: Glue the three black buttons just below the scarf of the snowman.
Step 8: Add the eyes of the snowman on the head.
Step 9: Cut and glue a piece of pointed triangle using the green sponge paper. Place it on the center of the face just below the eyes. This is his nose.
Step 10: Add a smile from a piece of green sponge paper. Glue this just below the nose.
Step 11: Using the light blue sponge paper, cut the hat of the snowman.
Step 12: Cut a strip of green sponge paper and glue it on top of the hat brim.
Step 13: Cut the excess material off the green strip.
Step 14: Glue the hat on top of the snowman’s head.
Step 15: Cut a piece of ribbon, then fix it on the top part of the hat, just behind it. Secure it thoroughly using hot glue.
You are finally done with your simple snowman decoration! Hang it on the Christmas tree, give it as a gift, or use it to decorate the house!
You can adjust the size of the simple snowman decoration if you want a bigger version of this one. We just used light materials so it withstands the force of banging a door often. You can also keep this and use it annually since you can easily clean this based on the material used.
Hope you enjoy making this!
