Paper Plate Snowman Garland: Winter Craft

Now that the holidays have passed, and winter is in full swing, it is the perfect time to gather around the kitchen table and do some crafting with your children. My boys and I love making snowmen crafts this time of year. What’s not to love about their simple round shape and adorable smiling faces? Recently, we made a sweet paper plate snowman garland. It was fun to make, and looks fantastic hanging at the top of our large kitchen window.
Isn’t it cute? To make your own paper plate snowman garland, you’ll need:
- small paper plates
- pipe cleaners
- pom poms
- googly eyes
- orange paper
- a hole punch
Once you have gathered all the supplies, you can have the children make about five paper plate snowmen.
1. Use a hole punch to punch two holes, one on each side of the paper plate.
2. Make snowman earmuffs by inserting the ends of the pipe cleaner into each of the holes, and bend the ends of the pipe cleaner to hold it in place. Then, use glue to attach two pom poms.
3. Use glue to attach googly eyes and a nose made from orange paper. Then, use markers to add the rest of the facial features.
Allow all the paper plate snowmen to dry completely. Then, hang the snowmen from a piece of yarn. I used little clothespins, but you could also use a hole punch to make holes in the tops of the paper plates.
I love this little craft, and I can’t help smiling when I look at all the cheerful snowmen faces my boys created. Have fun making your own paper plate snowman garland, and stay warm.
