These oven-baked clay snowmen can double as Christmas tree ornaments and gift tags. For the eyes and mouth, roll small balls from black clay, place on a baking sheet, and press to flatten slightly. Use small amounts of orange clay to make tiny carrot noses (approximately 3/4-inch long).
Bake the eye, nose, and mouth shapes on a cookie sheet according to package directions and let cool. Roll a 1/4-inch thick slab of white clay onto waxed paper; use a cookie cutter to cut circles. Use the photo for inspiration to decorate the snowmen's faces. Poke a hole in the top of each head with a toothpick, making it large enough for a chenille stem. Once the snowman is finished, bake according to instructions. Thread a chenille stem through each hole; twist ends to secure.
Turn a tabletop into a sparkling winter wonderland with a snowman ornament (this cute guy could be made, too, with a large white bell and two small green bells, a wooden circle, wire, paper, glitter, and paint pens) and a bell-shape cloche. Set the ornament on a layer of fluffy faux snow. Embellish the cloche with rhinestone gems that look like flakes falling down the glass. Cover the scene with the cloche, and finish by scattering snowflake confetti around the arrangement.
This friendly snowman replaces a traditional evergreen wreath and will greet guests with a smiling face on your front door. For the face, sew together two circles of white fleece, stuffing polyester fiberfill in between. Cut the sleeves from an old flannel shirt, and sew them together, making a tube. Cut across an 18-inch straw wreath (where the bottom of the design is) and pull the sleeves gently onto the wreath, filling the empty spaces with fiberfill. Stuff knit gloves or mittens with fiberfill and attach at the bottom of the wreath. Pin the head to the top of the wreath and tack the scarf in place. Glue any desired greenery to sections of the wreath and hang on your front door.
Making these adorable finger puppets is a simple, no-fuss project that will create hours of entertainment for kids and adults. (Bonus: They can be used for decorations after the puppet show ends.) Wrap felt rectangle around a dime coin wrapper and glue in place. Glue a white wooden bead on top of the felt-covered coin wrapper and let dry. Draw the snowman's face on the bead and use a piece of felt to make the hat; glue in place. Cut a small strip of felt to fashion a scarf and glue small pom-poms as buttons. Poke two holes in the middle of the torso and use a brown chenille stem to make arms.
You'll find most of the materials for these fun-to-make snowmen decorations at a hardware store. Use a vent connector for the body and put a glittered plastic-foam ball on top for the head. Give the snowman a face with upholstery tacks for the eyes and mouth and a screw for the nose. For the buttons, glue washers together and adhere to a small circle of felt. Glue a magnet to each felt piece and attach to the vent connector.
This creative snowman is a fun-to-make decoration from foam balls and other crafts supplies (order all you need, below!). Stack three foam balls and run a wooden dowel through them to hold them together. Top the snowman with a small paper cup painted black and attached to a black cardstock circle with liquid adhesive, and secure the hat with toothpicks stuck in the top of the snowman's head.
To make the carrot nose, remove the paper from an orange crayon and stick the crayon tip in the center of the face. Finger-paint rosy cheeks and create a smiling mouth from black brads. Cut different sizes and colors of felt and adhere them to a longer felt strip to make the scarf. Stick small twigs on both sides of the middle foam ball to make the arms.

These sugary snowmen make perfect, inexpensive ornaments to hang on the tree this year. Unwrap three peppermint hard candies and place on a baking sheet covered with waxed paper. Arrange in a snowman shape and bake for 3 or 4 minutes at 350 degrees, until the candies are softened. Remove from the oven and immediately press desired candy decorations (we used sprinkles and silver dragees) into the softened candy pieces. When the ornament is cool, peel from the waxed paper, and glue a wire ornament hanger to the back.
It must be snowing pom-poms -- this frosty figure is made from a stack of three. Stack three pom-poms for a snowman shape. Add a needle-felted nose, earmuffs, a felt scarf, and glittery arms for personality.
With painted snowflakes and a shapely snowman, this ornament ensures it's always a snowy day. Use a pencil to trace a snowman design on a blue ornament.

Say good-bye to ugly Christmas sweaters! Cut a sleeve from an old sweater and slip it over a glass vase or small bowl to make a snowman face. Trim excess material at the bottom and pin to hide ends.
