These little fellows are a very friendly sight! All you need to make them are clothespins, wood spool, toothpicks for the noses and chenille stems for their arms. This is a great kids craft. They are easy to make and the kids love to make them and they can give them as gifts.

There are many crafts for Christmas and this one is really cute because they are very different and everyone loves them.

For Each Clothespin Snowman You Will Need

  • Wooden spool and wooden circle cutout for the hat
  • 2 wooden hearts and 1 star
  • Round toothpick for nose
  • Black pipe cleaner for arms
  • Ribbon for scarf

Paint the clothespin white, star cutouts green, heart red, and spool and circle black. For the nose, paint the ends of the toothpick orange.

Cut the painted toothpick about ¼” long and glue it to the face. Paint black eyes and a black mouth. You can paint black buttons on the snowman if you want.

For the arms, overlap ends of chenille stem ½” and glue together to form a loop. Glue the overlap at back of neck for the arms of the clothespin snowman. Glue star and heart cutouts to front of arms.
