How to Build a Mini Snowman

Get the step-by-step directions for putting this adorable mini snowman together with your kids this winter.

Do you want to build a snowman? Many of us know this question as a song we can’t get out of our heads. But this time of year, once the snow has fallen, you can build a snowman just about anywhere – from your backyard to your warm family room. If you’re still hoping for snow to start building those snowmen, try building a mini DIY snowman inside today.

Materials

  • Three Styrofoam balls: two medium, one small
  • Toothpicks
  • Black craft paint
  • Felt
  • Scissors
  • Scrap paper
  • Tacky glue
  • Craft knife

Instructions

To get started, insert a toothpick into one of the medium Styrofoam balls, adding the other medium Styrofoam ball on top if it.

Add another toothpick on top of that into the column of Styrofoam and add the small Styrofoam ball to create the snowman body.

Using your craft knife, slice off a small piece of the bottom Styrofoam ball to create a flat base. Cut out a circle from the scrap paper. Add a few drops of tacky glue and position the snowman into it; let dry.

Next, it’s time to create the look of your snowman! Using another toothpick, add a few drops of paint onto the head to create eyes and face. Add a few more to the belly to create buttons. Let dry.

With the paint dry, work on the snowman’s scarf. Cut a thin piece of felt into a long rectangle, fringing the ends. Tie around the top of the snowman to give him a wintry look!
