Cardboard Tube Snowman Family Craft

3:16 PM

Today I wanted to share with you our weekend snowman project.  I have seen so many of these toilet paper tube snowmen and thought my daughter would love making them.These little cuties were so much fun to make and after getting paint all over us, we finally finished them. Here's how we made them.

The best part about these snowmen is that I already had all of the things I needed to make them. It made it super easy. I didn't have googly eyes or pom poms so I improvised.

What You Will Need:
  • Scissors
  • Knife
  • Craft Paint
  • Foam Brush
  • Felt Strips
  • Glitter Glue
  • Paint Pen
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Construction Paper

Get your tubes ready. Start by cutting half way through the tube where you'd like the brim to be. 

Then, gather your paint and foam brush. I used Martha Stewart's craft paint in a satin finish.

Follow the steps below to create your own snowman family.

You can purchase the supplies I used below.

Here's what they looked like after we were done. Aren't they just the cutest?

The sleepy one is our favorite. :D Have you made toilet paper tube snowmen before? How did they turn out? Feel free to share your link below so I can check them out. I'd love to see!
