Snowman Craft Made From A Clothespin!

disclosure

While helping out at my daughter’s 2nd grade classroom, her teacher had asked if I could brainstorm on a craft for the kids to pass out while they sang for local seniors.

She gave me a bag of various craft supplies collected during the year, and I was able to assemble kits for a foam shaped Christmas stocking ornament with a ribbon and stickers.

Well I also had some other items in the bag including ribbon and clothespins, and asked if I could come back and facilitate a Snowman Craft that the kids could also put together to take home.

She agreed and I ended up picking up a few additional items from The Dollar Store including cotton balls, googly eyes, and ribbon.

Plus I was able to locate solid brown packs of pipe cleaners at Hobby Lobby.

 

If you would like to recreate this Snowman Craft Made From A Clothespin, you will need the following:

  • Clothespin
  • Ribbon
  • Googly Eyes
  • Brown Pipe Cleaner
  • Orange Foam
  • Glue
  • Scissors

To get started, first cut a pipe cleaner in half for the snow man’s arms and cut out a piece of ribbon for his scarf (around 10 inches).

Then cut a small triangle shape out of the foam for the nose.

 

Next, place a small line of glue along the top of the clothespin and add 3 cotton balls.

You can either place the pipe cleaner before the cotton balls or after by wrapping and twisting it tightly between the first and second cotton ball.

 

Then, slide the piece of ribbon behind the pipe cleaner.

Once in place crisscross it along the front adding glue to the second cotton ball to keep in place and more glue to overlap the top ribbon to keep it in place.

 

Next, start gluing on the eyes and the nose. Allow this lay flat and dry completely.

This Snowman Craft Made From A Clothespin is ready to then be hung on a tree, basket, or even a bag of chips or cookies.

This can also be put on a fridge by adding a magnetic strip to the back!
