This snowman ornament is a fun way to invite Frosty the Snowman into your house this holiday season! This adorable snowman ornament is made with a few sheets of foam and your child’s creativity. Our snowman ornament has twig arms, a foam hat and lots of buttons that fit his fun personality, but yours could be totally unique. Frosty makes a cute gift tag or decoration that will last after the snow has melted and remind the family of past holidays enjoyed together.

What You Need:

  • 2 White foam sheets
  • Black, brown, green and orange foam sheets
  • Red felt
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • 2 Cups of different sizes
  • Hole punch
  • Thin ribbon
  • 2 Sequins or rhinestones
  • Small black buttons


What You Do:

  1. Have your child trace the drinking glasses on the white foam with a pencil to make two circles of different sizes.
  2. To make the snowman’s body, glue the smaller circle on top of the larger one, slightly overlapping the edges.
  3. Show your child how to draw a hat on the black foam by drawing a square with a brim, and then cut it out.
  4. Glue the hat on top of the snowman’s head.
  5. Draw two twig arms on brown foam and cut them out.
  6. Glue them in fun positions to give your snowman expressive arms.
  7. Glue small black buttons on the snowman’s face to make eyes and a mouth. Don’t forget to keep the snowman warm by buttoning up the front of his belly!
  8. Draw a triangle nose on orange foam, then cut it out and glue it on his face.
  9. For a scarf, cut two thin strips of red felt, one a bit longer than the other. Make fringes the edges of the scarf with small cuts. Crisscross the felt over the snowman’s neck and glue them in place.
  10. Cut out two small leaves from green foam and glue them on his hat for the holly.
  11. Attach two red sequins for berries.
  12. Punch a hole in one corner of the hat, and run a ribbon through the hole to make a loop.

Frosty is now ready to decorate your Christmas tree!
