Snowman Glue Craft
This snowman glue craft is an easy
project for kids or adults alike.
These snowmen are made out of regular
white school glue. The glue is squeezed out on to wax paper,
and decorated with
beads, bits of paper, and small pieces of fabric.
After the snowmen are
allowed to dry for about two days, they peel easily off from the
wax paper. They can be attached to a ribbon, as shown below, to become
snowman garland. Or, individual snowmen can be turned into magnets,
pins, or used to adorn gift packages and bags. These come out really
cute and are fun to make!
Needed to Make this Snowman Glue Craft:
- Piece of cardboard to work upon (optional, you can also use
- Piece of wax paper
- bits of colored scrap paper, beads, bits of fabric, etc
(see directions below to see what I used)
- white glue
- clear or white glitter (optional)
- ribbon for hanging (optional)
Begin the snowman glue craft by choosing your work area. If you use a
table, be sure you can leave the snowmen there undisturbed, for a
couple days to dry. A better solution is to find a piece of cardboard
to work on so you can move it to a safe location to dry. Tape a piece
of wax paper down on your work surface or the cardboard.
2. Using the white glue, outline three circles for the snowmen
body. Then fill these in with white glue. If you are making these with
very small children, you may want to make the circles for them and then
allow them to fill in the lines of the circle with glue. Get a nice
thick layer of glue, and don't worry if it isn't perfect (it will add
to the uniqueness of each little snowman!)
3. Optional: Sprinkle each snomwan with some clear or white glitter to
give them some extra sparkle.
3. Now it is time to be creative! Use little bits of scrap paper and
bits of fabric to make buttons, eyes, and other features. I used small
seed beads for eyes, paper punched holes for buttons, and cut out
different shaped hats. For the arms, I used the delicate branches of
some dried baby breath I saved from a flower arrangement. You could
also find small twigs for the yard, or try some pipecleaners or thin
wire. For the earmuffs, I cut out small ovals from construction paper
and connected them with a small piece of yarn. Don't worry if the
features "sink" into the glue. As the glue dries it will become more
opaque so you will be able to see the features.
4. Allow the snowmen to dry for about two days. Then, gently peel each
snowman off from the wax paper (a flat spatula will come in handy).
5. I attached the snowmen to a ribbon to hang as a garland. You can
also use these as magnets, on greeting cards and gift tags, or make
them into a pin.
