Experience the magic of winter fun by decorating with these easy Snowman Ornaments. Only 5 minutes to make! And a great Christmas Craft to make with the kids.
When I was young, I remember very clearly making Christmas ornaments with my mom. Our Tree was always covered in homemade Christmas ornaments. No fancy, chic ornaments on our tree. And with nine kids, it wasn’t hard to fill up the tree with all our handmade ornaments.
Now that I’m grown, I find I miss having homemade ornaments on our tree. So I’ve begun the journey of making new ornaments each year to add to our collection.
This year I decided to make an ornament that the kids would love, like cute Snowman Ornaments.
Plus, being quite a bit easier to make is an added benefit. These Snowman Ornaments are so simple you can even get the kids involved!

Snowman Ornaments Supplies:
- Clear Glass Ornament if you can’t find Glass ornaments, then a clear plastic ornament should work.
- 3 pipe cleaners (red, green and white make great selections)
- Sparkle White Pom Pom
- Styrofoam snow beads
- Clear Glass Ornament
- Clear Glass Ornament
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue.
Remove the top of the ornament and set aside.
Beginning at the top apply a ring of hot glue to the ornament. Begin to wrap the pipe cleaner around the top of the ornament.
Continue to apply hot glue and then wrap the pipe cleaner around the ornament. Do this for 2 pipe cleaners.
You can do all one color, or alternate colors. Really the color options you pick is entirely up to your creativity.
After you use 2 pipe cleaners (approximately 4-5 rows) you will do one final row of the pipe cleaner for a trim. I used a White Pipe Cleaner for the trim on the hat.
Trim off the extra pipe cleaner and secure the end.
Find a narrow mug or something that will hold the ornament upright.
Using a funnel pour a small amount of Styrofoam snow beads into the ornament.
You can fill them all the way full or just a little full. Really it is up to you. I liked somewhere between 1/4-1/3 full.
At the very top inside lip of the ornament apply a ring of Hot glue. Add Another ring of hot glue on the top of the opening of the ornament.
Place the sparkle pom pom on top as a plug or stopper.
Push slightly so it secures to the glue around the inside ring to seal the ornament.
Remember the lid to the ornament that we set aside? Take the wire loop from the top of the ornament out of the cap.
Pinch the ends together and stick through the center of the Pom Pom and push so it begins to slide through the pom pom.
Push until it passes through the Pom Pom and into the ornament. Now it will still work as the ornament hook.
Now we move onto drawing the Face for the Snowman Ornaments!
Using the black glass paint marker you will draw on the eyes and the smile.
Using the orange Glass paint marker you will draw on the “carrot” nose.
Lay the Snowman Ornaments with the face flat and facing up in the mug again, or the original ornament holder. This way the paint can dry without gravity making the paint run and mess up the cute little face you just drew.
After the paint is fully dry you can attach an ornament hook and hang your cute Snowman Ornaments on your tree!
Other than drying time, it takes about 5-10 minutes to make 1 snowman ornament.
Like I said at the beginning, our snowman ornaments are super easy to do and make great holiday ornaments your family will enjoy!
