Free Holiday Craft Pattern - Clay Pot Christmas Snowmen Craft Instructions


Contributed by Amanda Formaro, Family Corner Magazine, with permission

Create these adorable Christmas snowmen from small clay or wooden pots and other things around the house. See our project list for instructions to make matching Santa & Mrs. Claus and Christmas elf. Santa's helpers are busy making presents for all the good boys and girls. This little elf is no exception! This darling snowman and snowwoman make the perfect couple. All bundled up for a cold winter's day, and so easy, the kids can make them too!


Materials Needed:

Instructions

Place newspaper down on work surface. Turn clay pot over and glue wooden ball to bottom of pot. When glue is dry, use large paint brush to paint entire the outside of the flower pot and the entire wooden ball with white paint. Let dry and apply a second coat.

Cut the foot end off of the child's sock. Create a brim by folding up the cuff of the sock, then position the cuff of the sock onto the "head" of the snowman (see photo). Glue the brim in place. Tie a piece of gold ribbon around the top of the hat and fringe the top with scissors. Adjust the fringe edges with your fingers until they look the way you want.

Tie a strip of material or mitten scrap around the neck to fashion a scarf. Glue in place if desired. Glue two buttons to the front of your snowman. With black finetip marker, dot on eyes and mouth. Use a small paint brush to apply orange paint for a nose and gently dab on a thin amount of pink for the cheeks.
