It’s Day 4 and we are sharing Kids Christmas Craft Ideas!
These adorable little Terracotta Pot Snowmen are a quick Kids Christmas Craft using hot glue, paint, felt and those fun little googly eyes. Except for waiting on the paint to dry this craft is pretty quick to make.
Moms, you could easily paint the pots prior to your crafting party and make the process quicker.
More DIY Ornament Ideas:
- Mini Terracotta Pots (about 1.6″)
- White Craft Paint
- Small Googly Eyes
- Red Felt
- Small pom pom balls (like these)
- Chenille Sticks
- Orange party toothpicks
We will turn the pot upside down to create a cute little snowman craft. I found my terracotta pots at Hobby Lobby in a pack of six for only $1.99 which is about .34 cent each, cheap enough.
Begin by measuring the felt around the rim of the pot and cut slightly longer to create the scarf. The width of the scarf should be almost exactly the width of the rim.
Paint the pot white and allow to dry.
Cut a small slit in the scarf as shown above. Then loop around and pull one end through the slit to create a round scarf.
Now wrap the scarf around the rim of the pot and straighten. Use a dab of hot glue to hold the scarf into place. Carefully cut little slits in the ends of the felt to create a fringe on your scarf.
Use a dab of hot glue to attach the googly eyes to the front of the pot.
Measure and cut a chenille stick which will serve double duty. It will be a part of the ear warmers as well as the hanger for the tree. Use a little dab of hot glue to attach each end of the chenille stick to the pot. Then glue the pom pom balls onto the ends of the chenille sticks to be the ear warmers.
Mix and match the chenille sticks and mini pom poms for fun.
Last but not least, let’s give him a nose! Snip the end from an orange toothpick. You know those round party toothpicks. Buy those, they are great to keep in the craft room for lots of little things.
Dab a little hot glue onto the end of the toothpick and stick it into place on your snowman’s face.
One of these snowmen has a nose that pokes straight out and the other has a nose glued down across instead of out. You know how the kids will say to one another “I’m going to make mine like this” and the other will suddenly know they have to do theirs different. Yeah, well either way is fine.
All done. Isn’t he just adorable! Be sure to let the children write their name and the year on the inside with a marker because you will enjoy sharing the memories of making these.
