Toilet roll snowman craft: an adorable ornament or winter craft for kids…
I’m so excited to show you this little toilet roll snowman craft! We woke up to a very light dusting of snow this morning. It was gone by mid-morning, but it put me in the mood for some winter creativity. Warning: cuteness over-load coming up!
Snowman craft supplies:
I hadn’t planned this at all, but it all pulled together easily enough. The materials are things that you likely have around the house:
- toilet rolls
- white paint
- dried black beans
- fabric scraps
- orange felt (or foam or construction paper)
How to make a toilet roll snowman:
We started by painting some toilet paper tubes with white paint. We used acrylic, but any paint will do.
Before we continued, we stapled some rafia to the top of the tube so it could be used as a tree ornament.
Next wrap a strip of scrap fabric around the top of the tube (my scraps came from a fleece blanket and a couple of tee shirts). We went around the tube first with glue, but after wrapping the strip around, we stapled it, to make sure it stayed in place.
We placed ours by the fire to dry the glue quickly. We always dry our projects by the fire, but nothing we’ve ever made looks as cute as these guys do standing in front of the flames!! I couldn’t resist taking a picture.
