Make-It Monday: Snowman Jar

We haven’t had any snow this winter, not even a single flurry.  Since Trevor’s missing out on making a real snowman, I thought we could have fun making a snowman craft instead.  He absolutely loved making this!

Stuffing cotton balls in the jar:

Gluing black pom-poms on for a mouth:

This is so much fun!

Checking out the finished product, complete with sock for a hat:

He loved his snowman so much!  He carried it all over the house, lol 🙂

What you need:

  • plastic jar with lid
  • cotton balls
  • glue
  • googly eyes
  • pom poms
  • orange paper
  • sock
  • rubber band

How to make it:

  1. Stuff cotton balls into a clean plastic jar (we used a peanut butter jar).
  2. Screw the lid back on.
  3. Glue on the googly eyes.
  4. Cut a small square out of orange paper.
  5. Roll paper into a cone shape.
  6. Glue a pom pom inside the wide end of the cone, so that you can glue it to the jar.
  7. Glue the nose to the jar.
  8. Glue 5 black pom poms to the jar for a mouth.  (You can also use buttons, but I wanted something larger so that Trevor could easily grip them)
  9. Turn a sock inside out.
  10. Wrap a rubber band tightly around the sock, just past the heel.
  11. Turn the sock back right-side out and attach the open end around the lid of the jar to resemble a hat.
