These foam cup snowmen are adorable! Not only is this a great way to recycle any foam cups you have kept, it’s also a fun activity for the kids on a snowy afternoon when it’s too cold to play outside. Originally posted on craftsbyamanda.com.
While these snowmen are wearing matching scarves and earmuffs, you can use your favorite colours or whatever you have on hand. That’s actually one of the best parts of this particular winter craft - the kids can show their individualism and creativity by dressing them in their own style.
You Will Need:
- Foam cups
- Medium pom poms
- Pipe cleaners
- White craft glue
- Black marker
Cut a 1-inch wide strip of felt using the full length of the felt sheet. Fringe the ends with scissors by cutting 4 or 5 slits at each end.
Place your foam cup upside down. Glue the scarf around the cup, leaving enough room for a face.
Cut triangles from orange felt and glue them to the face area for noses. For the earmuffs, cut a pipe cleaner in half. Bend it around the top of the snowman and trim the ends so that they hang over by about 1/2-inch.
Trim one side of a pom pom to make it a little flatter. Glue to the pipe cleaner on the side of the snowman’s head. Repeat for the other side.
Use a black marker to add eyes. You can add eyebrows if you like as well! It adds to their cute expressions and gives them character.
