I can barely stand the cuteness, guys. This easy snowman craft is perfect for kids, easily customizable, and makes a fun christmas gift or party favor. I’ve made snowman candy bars in the past, but wanted to update them a bit! I kept my favorite elements of the original version (bakers twine scarf!), but added a few updates (sequins! fake snow!)

This snowman craft uses a lot of things you probably already have on hand…

  • candy bars
  • plain paper for wrapping
  • sequins
  • googly eyes
  • bakers twine
  • black cardstock (for the hat)
  • orange cardstock (for the nose)
  • black craft paint
  • clear glitter or fake snow (optional)
  • Mod Podge

Step 1: Wrap your candy bars in white paper. I used plain printer paper and it worked great!

Step 2: Use hot glue to glue on your googly eyes. Cut triangles out of your cardstock (I used glitter cardstock, since I had it on hand, but anything, including construction paper, will do), and glue them onto your bars, as well.

Step 3: Wrap your bakers twine (yarn works for this, as well) around your candy bar, and tie for a scarf. Use a Q-tip and a dab of craft paint to paint on a mouth. Cut out hat shapes out of your black cardstock, and use a bit of Mod Podge to adhere a bit of glitter or fake snow to your hats (I even added a bit at the bottom of each snowman).

Glue hat shape onto each snowman head and sequins onto each body for the buttons.

It sounds like a lot of steps, but I made 6 of these in about half an hour. Looks like we have another 30 minute craft to add to the archives!

So Darling!! Easy too! I used washi tape for the scarf and glitter glue to make buttons for the snow people. Made pink hats for the snow ladies...each person will get a couple. I only have 6 people to give them to so had fun doing snow men and ladies. Thank You for sharing the idea and have a Wonderful Holiday Season!!
