  • Paint all three of your small wooden blocks white. You can use any type of white craft paint, but a chalk paint dries quickly and only needs one coat.
    Paint your upcycled wood blocks white.
  • Once dry, use a low temperature hot glue gun or other craft glue to attach your wooden blocks together, one on top of the other. This will form the body of your snowman.
    Glue your painted white wood blocks together.
  • Using black craft paint and a thin bristled paintbrush (or paint pens), draw two eyes and a coal mouth onto the top wooden block to form the snowman’s face. Paint a carrot nose in between the eyes and mouth with the orange craft paint and a thin bristled paintbrush or paint pens.
    Paint the face on the top block of the snowman.
  • Use a hot glue gun to attach three black craft pom poms to the second and third blocks on your snowman. These will serve as his buttons (you could substitute these for cute little buttons!).
    Glue the pom poms onto the bottom two blocks.
  • Glue a piece of ribbon around the neck of your snowman. Cut the ends of the ribbon with scissors to make it look like a dangling scarf.
    Glue the scarf onto the wood block snowman.
  • Loop a piece of twine and attach it to the back of your snowman’s head to serve as a hanger for your ornament when you have finished.
    Glue twine to the back to form the hanger.
  • Attach two small twigs to the sides of your snowman ornament, one on each side to serve as his arms. Hang your adorable snowman ornament on a tree or wreath and enjoy!
