Winter Craft Ideas

Winter craft ideas are a great pass time. These are great for those extra cold winter days, plus they make cute decorations for the house or school. 

This fun winter craft will show what would happen to your snowman if you brought him into the house. 

But he's a special type, he doesn't melt completely... just enough.

We've made a number of snowman crafts  so be sure to check out our winter crafts for kids page for a bunch more.

Winter Craft Ideas: Melted Snowman

Time to get crafting, no need for mittens to build these snowman winter crafts idea!

Craft Supplies:

  • White paper cup (or Styrofoam)
  • Craft foam (orange)
  • Pom pom (large, color of your choice)
  • Pipecleaner (color to match pom pom)
  • Googly eyes
  • White tissue paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors

Step #1:

Cut a carrot nose from your orange craft foam (you can also use construction paper). Set this aside for later.

Step #2:

Take a few sheets of tissue paper, cut them into a circle - but make the edges wavey. We are creating a puddle of melted snow (well, water).

Step #3:

Take your pom pom and cut it in half. Be care with the halves, sometimes cutting pom poms can cause them to fall apart.

Bend a piece of pipe cleaner into a U shape that will fit nicely between your two pom pom pieces.

Step #4:

Glue a half of the pom pom onto each side of your paper cup. Make sure you use the cup upside down.

Once done, glue the pipe cleaner in between the two halves.

Step #5:

Glue your googly eyes to the front of your cup. Allow these to dry. If you want an quicker drying time you can use hot glue (with supervision, of course).

Step #6

Add the carrot nose you cut out in step one, glue this below the eyes.

Take your "puddles" of tissue paper and glue them to the bottom of the snowman head (which is really the top of the paper cup).

Now, you have a melted snowman who will never completely melt away. He will stay with you through the whole season!
