Wooden Snowman Tutorial

supplies:

  • 2×4 cut to 6 inches long {included in kit}
  • 2×4 cut to 8.5 inches long {included in kit}
  • white paint
  • paint brush
  • black marker
  • liquid glue
  • glitter
  • sandpaper
  • fabric for scarfs {included in kit}

  1. sand the edges of the wood.
  2. paint the wood white. spray paint or craft paint works great.
  3. draw 2 eyes with the marker. *tip: i tied the fabric scarf on so i could use it as a reference for eye placement.

4. apply a thick coat of liquid glue to all sides {except the bottom} with the paint brush. i used Decoupaige which acts as a sealer as well.

5. while the glue is still wet, sprinkle on glitter. *Tip: do this inside of a box or a cookie sheet to catch the excess glitter. brush out any glitter that fell onto the eyes.

6. tie on the fabric scarf. and you’re done!!

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When not crafting, I can be found chasing my 2 small {but very energetic!} boys or playing with my new baby girl. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥

    Hi! Is there a reason you used Decoupage glue as opposed to Mod Podge or other ones? Sorry if this is a stupid question — I am just beginning to craft and don’t know what is what.

      Hi Maya,
      Not a stupid question! I used Decoupage because that’s what I had on hand. Mod Podge would work well too.
      happy crafting!

    Love this snowman. Did you use 2×4 or 4×6 pieces of wood? Or are they different sizes?

    I love the snowmen. I would’nt think a 2×6 piece of wood would stand up by it self. Great easy craft.

      Just saw your snowmen on Pinterest … they are so cute and easy to
      To make. So glad I read all the comments from people to get a correct size
      Of the boards you used. I know I have enough scraps around to make them.
      Love the simplicity of them!!

    Hi Linda,

    I’m a fashion consulting in Brazil, but since I got pregnant from my first baby I’m in love with crafting!
    I’m doing by myself my newborn souvenir!

    I loved to know your blog and your work! I really want to dedicate my time (after the first months of Frederico born) to crafting!
    Thanks for being an inspiration!

    Kind regards,
    Paula
