Winter Craft Snowman

| |

There’s something about a stack of white plates that makes my heart go pitter-pat.

This winter craft snowman starts with my heart pitter-pat, pitter-pat…

The pitter-pat maybe because a stack of white plates means it’s almost time to eat!!! 😕

This time though the pitter-pat is due to a “man!”

Shhh!  Don’t tell Mike.

And can you blame me???  Just look at those twinkling button eyes.

Supplies to make a winter craft snowman

Stack of three different sized white plates
Three large dark buttons
Two smaller dark buttons
Strip of burlap for a scarf {mine is 20 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide}
Three large paper clips
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Stick up hooks for hanging {I used these, no damage to the wall}
A small knit cap or I let my snowman wear a boot topper.

The easy peasy steps!


First, use a dollop of hot glue to hold the paper clip on each plate.  I added the glue to the plate then pushed the paper clip into the glue.  Then added a bit more glue just to be sure.

Don’t worry about the glue on the back of your plates.  It will pop right off when your snowman melts! 😀


I have great success with these sticky hooks.  Since my work is sharing DIY ideas with you, I hang and take down lots of stuff.

I hung the bottom plate first.  I wanted the snowman to hang just above the mantel shelf.  Otherwise, I would have started with his head.


Notice I overlapped the plates a bit.  Next, I added the cap {boot topper} and hot glue the eyes.  Take a second and look in the mirror.  Isn’t it surprising that our eyes are pretty much in the center of our heads?

Then I hot glued the larger buttons down the plates.  The burlap “scarf” topped off the look.



My heart pitter pats every time I glance over at my new “man.”

  1. LOVE HIM!! I used to collect Snowmen, my ex made me stop. I need to start again, but this house is SOOOO small. I even a a few white plates from a garage sale ♥ Boy, do I need that extra month! Oh well, maybe next year.

  2. Another seriously adorable idea from you, Jeanette. I was looking at white plates at the dollar store the other day and never would have thought of this idea. Pinning and sharing and just might be stealing this idea and making one or two.
