How To Make A Snowman You’ll Love

Want to make a snowman you’ll love?  Making these Papier-mâché Snowmen is so much fun!  This is the third snowman I’ve created using the same Papier-mâché used for the pumpkins earlier this year.  Creating those was so much fun, too!  What can I make for spring?  Hmmm…

How to make a snowman?  This little snowman, (With his hat, he stands 12″ high.), was made in the same way the other snowman and the lady snowman were made, using a newspaper sleeve and crumpled newspaper.  A warning here, after you make a snowman, making these can become addictive!

You may think that I had a vision when each of these was started but that is not really the case.  For Frosty, I knew he would be wearing the earmuffs.  For Ellie, (It just seemed an appropriate name for her.), the Lady Snowman, I knew she would be wearing a red hat.  The last snowman, Archie Frost, (My friend, Cyndi, named him!) would be wearing a top hat.

 

Beyond that, they just began to take shape as the clay was applied and the arms were shaped.  Archie reminded me of a dancing snowman at first.  The way his arms happened to be positioned, it just seemed right.

Then, a little bird perched on his hand came to mind, and there you go.  Perfect!

After he was completely dry, he was painted white, antiqued, and clear glitter was applied just like the other two before him.  He looks adorable just like this, but wouldn’t he just be perfect with a top hat?

Instructions On How To Make A Top Hat

How To Make A Snowman You'll Love on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

 

To make this hat, I actually used the same brim pattern I cut out of an advertisement for the Lady Snowman’s hat.  Ellie and Archie had heads that were about the same diameter.  The hat I envisioned was a little wider at the top than it was at the base.  So, I cut a piece of newspaper, which would fit the inner circle of the hat brim.  Then, I sliced the top of the crown pattern, as you can see in the picture, to open it up a little.  You can see that making your own pattern is pretty simple.

How To Make A Snowman You'll Love on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

 

Using that piece as a pattern, and leaving those spaces open, I traced it on another piece of newspaper.  Then, it was folded in half, pinned to a piece of folded black felt, and cut out.  You can see the brim was cut, too, but a little width was added to the brim.  

Not shown in the picture, but also necessary, is a 4″ circle of black felt, (or whatever size fits your crown), for the top of the hat.How To Make A Snowman You'll Love on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

 

The piece for the crown was folded in half and a 1/8″ seam was stitched on the loose edge, which would be the back seam.

Fold the brim in half and mark the fold with straight pins.  Fold the brim in the opposite direction and mark these folds.

Divide the crown into quarters in the same way.  Then, match up the pins and pin the two pieces together, adding more pins to secure the pieces.How To Make A Snowman You'll Love on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

 

Sew around the pinned opening, 1/8″ from the edge.How To Make A Snowman You'll Love on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

 

 

 

 

A four-inch circle was cut for the top of the hat.  The top edge of the crown and the circle were divided into fourths with the straight pins and that edge was sewn in a 1/8″ seam.

Clip the threads and turn it right side out and you have a hat!  How simple is that?

A piece of red velvet ribbon was attached by using a tiny dab of Tacky Glue in the front, on the right side, the back, and on the loose ends on the left side.  A little sprig of holly was glued where the two ends came together.How To Make A Snowman You'll Love on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

I think this is my favorite so far!  Each has his own personality!

How to make a snowman you’ll LOVE?  It’s really easy!  Hope this inspires you to make one of your own.  Another newspaper sleeve with crumpled paper stuffed inside with a wadded up ball of paper for a head sits beside me right now.  Yes, a collection begins.

How To Make A Beautiful Delicate Pine Cone Wreath

How To Make A Beautiful Delicate Pine Cone Wreath

A beautiful, delicate, pine cone wreath caught my attention on Pinterest.  Attached to ribbons, the pine cones were delicately suspended from the wreath.  I had never seen this done before and felt I needed to make one of these.  The pine cone wreath on Pinterest was more natural and woodsy, however, the wreath in my vision had beautiful shiny silver pine cones.

How To Make A Beautiful Delicate PineCone Wreath on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

 

At first, the plan was to buy another grapevine wreath as the base, but when I went to the basement storage room, the DIY Christmas wreath I made a couple of years ago caught my eye.

Wouldn’t those silver pinecones look great with the sprigs of greenery and the little red berries?  The tiny silvery leaves would echo the silver!  So, there was the plan in a matter of seconds.

All of the flowers and the ribbon bow were removed from the wreath.  There was basically a blank canvas.  Although the wreath previously had a coat of theDeluxe Snow Spray’, a few more light coats were sprayed over the front and sides of the wreath. 

 (We are an Amazon affiliate and may receive a small percentage of any sales through this link.  Thanks for supporting this website!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next, the pinecones had to be spray painted silver.  The cinnamon scented pinecones were purchased at JoAnn Fabric and Craft store for half price.   They don’t have to be scented.  That was just a bonus!  A search for that ‘mirror’ spray paint at several of the craft stores was fruitless.  I settled for shiny silver spray paint, which ran about $3.oo.  (I read a review on the mirror paint and the lady wrote that it was just an overpriced silver paint, in her opinion, anyway.)

The pinecones were just placed in a shallow cardboard box and several light coats of the silver paint were sprayed over them, allowing them to dry between coats.  I didn’t get obsessive over this.  Some of the areas at the base of the pinecone petals were not covered, which was not a big deal.  The pinecones had a nice silver shine to them.

How To Make A Beautiful Delicate PineCone Wreath on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

Using a drill and the smallest drill bit I have, a tiny hole was drilled in the top of the pinecone.  Some of the stems had to be removed before the surface was flat enough to be able to drill.  I just used the needle nose pliers to break the stem off to make it easier for drilling.  The hole makes it much easier to start the eye screw. 

How To Make A Beautiful Delicate PineCone Wreath on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

 The space where the stem was in these pinecones was limited.  It was necessary to remove a few of the petals around the stem on a couple of the cones.  My fingers would not fit to screw in the eye screw on several of them.  I could get them started but ended up using the needle nose pliers to finish the job.

How To Make A Beautiful Delicate PineCone Wreath on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

The red ribbon is such a bright contrast to these silver pine cones!  I love it!  

Not sure how long I wanted the ribbons at first, a ribbon end was threaded through the eye screw and tied in a knot.  The wreath was hung on the closet door so the ribbon lengths could be determined.  The ribbon was draped through the wreath and allowed to hang down, while the other end was held and manipulated until a decision was made on the length of the longest one.

How To Make A Beautiful Delicate PineCone Wreath on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

  

 

Then, the ribbon was cut and another pine cone was attached to the loose end.  (I already liked this pine cone wreath at this point!)

 

That process was used to decide how long each length of ribbon, with pine cones attached, needed to be.

How To Make A Beautiful Delicate PineCone Wreath on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

 

 

 

 

Once I was happy with the positioning of the pine cones on the ribbon, the tiny silver spray with the red berries was wired to the bottom half of the wreath.

Then, a bow from red ribbon was made.  I stood back and looked at it and decided that bow that was removed from the original wreath was really perfect for this wreath, too!  

Once it was attached to the wreath, there was still something lacking.  The top half looked plain.  It needed something delicate to balance what was going on at the bottom of the wreath.  After scouring the craft stores, fabric stores, department stores, etc., nothing seemed quite right.  The unfinished wreath sat here for a week. 

Then, I went to Michael’s and they had all of their tiny ornaments on sale – 70% off the regular price!  There were little boxes of 1″ diameter silver ornaments and I could envision them on the wreath as the perfect subtle finishing touch.  They set me back $1.80!

How To Make A Beautiful Delicate PineCone Wreath on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

To attach them to the wreath, instead of using hangers, a piece of wire was cut and shaped into a ‘U’ resembling a hairpin.   Then, the wire was slipped through the hanger on top of the ornament and twisted to hold it securely.  The two loose wires were then twisted around the branches on the wreath so they would hold more securely.

The wreath was hung in the dining room.  Although this pine cone wreath has a pop of red, it really seems quietly elegant, doesn’t it?

How To Make A Papier-Mâché Lady Snowman

How To Make A Papier-Mâché Lady Snowman

How to make a Papier- Mâché Lady Snowman?  Well, Frosty needed a female counterpart, didn’t he?  Following the same process we used to make Frosty, the lady snowman was created using another newspaper sleeve.  The snowmen will all be somewhat uniform by using the same size plastic newspaper sleeve.    

How To Make A Papier-mâché Lady Snowman on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

 

I deliberately made this lady snowman a little bit shorter than Frosty, but the process was the same.  Fill the lower portion of the plastic sleeve with wadded up newspaper, tie a knot in the plastic,  make a ball out of newspaper, insert in the sleeve for the head, and tie a knot above this.

Once again, masking tape was used to create the legs.  A twisted sheet of newspaper was used to create shoulders and arms.  I wanted this one to have a little bit of character with her arms up in the air.

How To Make A Papier-mâché Lady Snowman on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

 

The middle portion, where the twisted newspaper was placed across the back, was flattened to blend in with the body.  Then, it was taped in position.

 

 

 

The newspaper was twisted tighter and taped to resemble arms.  The twisted newspaper was cut the length desired for the arms and the end was folded back and taped, keeping in mind that she was to be wearing mittens.

How To Make A Papier-mâché Lady Snowman on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

I am still making and using the same Papier- Mâché glue and clay used for the Papier- Mâché pumpkins earlier to create these snowmen.  

 

The process of gluing the paper strips to the figure began.  This was also done in a couple of settings.  It just seems that allowing drying time between sessions of applying the glue and the strips, makes it easier to manage.  

After the paper strips were applied and allowed to dry, the soles were applied.

This time, I used the lid of a carryout pizza box to cut out the soles of her feet.  (The cream cheese box was too flimsy.)  The cardboard soles were glued to the bottom of the legs, the figure was supported with a bottle, and the glue was allowed to dry.

How To Make A Papier-mâché Lady Snowman on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

 

Then, the paper clay was packed in around the ‘feet’, filling in the spaces.  The figure was propped up against a bottle again.  Paper clay was filled in around the neck to support the wobbly head, too.  The clay was allowed to dry.  (This was a good thing!)  It helped to stabilize the head and the base.  I will do this with all of the snowmen!

Then, apply the clay to the body and head.  I usually cover parts of the body, allow that to semi-dry and then fill in around that, until the body is completely covered.  You can see that sections of the body are dried, some semi-dried, and the feet were flattened, leveled, and allowed to dry with the snowman on his back.

Two over-sized buttons made from the paper clay were formed and applied to the front of the snowman’s chest.  A carrot nose was shaped and attached to the face.  Her carrot nose is a little shorter than Frosty’s.  Little pieces of rolled and flattened clay were applied to resemble ruffles at the top of the mittens.  The key to applying these details is blending the edges into the clay where it is attached.  It doesn’t really seem to matter whether that clay is dry or wet.  You can see the clay is in different stages of drying on this snowman in this picture.

 

 


 

 

 The Olympic primer and paint in one was painted over the entire snowman.  (Refer to How To Make A Papier-Mâché Snowman – Part 2 for details on this.)How To Make A Papier-mâché Lady Snowman on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

How To Make A Papier-mâché Lady Snowman on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

 

The carrot nose was painted orange.  The mittens and the buttons were painted green.  A cute little smile and two black eyes were painted on the lady snowman’s face. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then, a watered down wash of antiquing medium was painted on in sections and rubbed off with a paper towel.

Next, a thin coat of Mod Podge was painted over the white of the snow lady in sections and, just like Frosty, clear glitter was sprinkled over the glue.  I avoided the black eyes, the mouth, the orange nose, and the green painted areas.

 

Each time I look at these, I have to smile!  Just think, this was made from a newspaper sleeve and wadded up newspaper!  Such humble beginnings and they look so darn cute!

 

Well, the lady snowman needed a hat.  There was red felt in my fabric stash.  I used the same red and green plaid for a neck scarf that was used for Frosty.  (My plan was to buy a coordinating fabric but obligations and grandkids made a shopping trip impossible.) In contrast to Frosty, the red hat and the green buttons and mittens seemed a perfect combination.

So, to begin this hat, I cut out a round piece of scrap paper.  Then, another circle was cut inside of that about the size I thought her head would fit in nicely.

It was a little small.  I widened that inner circle and it fit perfectly.  Now, the brim would be a little too thin.

When the brim was cut from the felt, instead of cutting out another pattern, I just eyeballed it, cutting equidistant outside of that outer circle.  (I could offer a pattern but your snowman head might be larger or smaller.  You can make your own and make the brim wider or thinner.  It is pretty easy to do!)

 

The felt brim was used to cut a crown for the hat.  I just laid the brim on a piece of felt and cut around the outside diameter.  Using a needle and thread, hand baste around the outer edge of the crown as shown in the picture.

Fold the brim in half, left to right, and mark with straight pins.  You could also use chalk to mark if you prefer.  Fold in half again, top to bottom, and mark with straight pins.  Repeat for the crown.  You need to match up the four pins on the brim and four on the crown. 

How To Make A Papier-mâché Lady Snowman on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

Then, matching the straight pins dividing the felt pieces into quarters, pull up the gathering stitches, and begin pinning together the outside edge of the crown piece to the inside edge of the brim piece.  Ultimately, the crown will be wrapped around the brim and the brim will be inside.  Secure the end of the thread to hold the gathering stitches in place. How To Make A Papier-mâché Lady Snowman on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

At this point, you can either hand stitch, or use the sewing machine, to stitch the brim to the crown.  Stitch about 1/8″ from the edge.  Remove from the machine and clip the threads.How To Make A Papier-mâché Lady Snowman on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

Once sewn, the hat can be turned right side out and it is ready to be embellished.  My initial thought was to add the front of an old earring to the hat but I came across this tiny holly and berry and decided it was perfect.  The holly was hot glued to the hat along the edge of the crown.

Another scarf was made in the same way Frosty’s was made only a little bit shorter.

Part 2 – How To Make A Papier- Mâché Snowman

After the little Papier-Mâché snowman from Part 1 was dry, I realized his feet weren’t so steady.  I had used the cream cheese box to cut out and make soles for his feet.  That cardboard was not so firm and somehow the ends of his feet curled in the front.  As you can imagine, that created a bit of a wobbly snowman.  Extra paper clay had to be applied there and flattened to make him a little more stable, which meant more drying time.  Sigh…

How To Make A Papier-Mâché Snowman - Part 2 on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

To remedy this, on the second snowman, a pizza box lid was used to create soles for feet.  Let me tell you that this was a far better idea.   After stuffing the newspaper sleeve, applying the paper strips and allowing that to dry, I glued the pizza box lid soles in the appropriate spots and allowed the Tacky glue to dry.

Then, the paper clay was used to fill in the space around the bottom, creating a nice base.  Paper clay was also applied in a ring around the neck.  The clay was allowed to dry.  This helped to stabilize the head and the base.  I think I will start doing this with all of the snowmen!

 

How To Make A Papier-Mâché Snowman - Part 2

 

After the clay had completely dried, a coat of white primer and paint was applied.  I really liked the paint used on the pumpkins as a base but that particular paint does not come in white.  This Olympic primer and paint in one works really nicely, too.

He’s beginning to look more like a snowman now and less like an alien or a troll!  Lol!

 

Remember the Easy DIY Melted Snowman Tablescape from last year?  I had some of the fabric left from the flannel plaid scarf.  This was used to create a little scarf for this first snowman.  The snowman stands about 10″ tall.  The scarf measures 18″ long and ended up being 1 – 7/8″ wide.  The lines of the plaid were followed as a guide to cut straight lines.

How To Make A Papier-Mâché Snowman - Part 2

Threads were removed from both ends to create fringe.  I didn’t bother to sew up the edges.  They were left raw.  There shouldn’t be a lot of strain on them once they are tied around the little fellow’s neck.

How To Make A Papier-Mâché Snowman - Part 2

Since the plaid had green in it, too, florist wire was used to create a band for the earmuffs.  (I saw this done on a snowman in a store and thought it was so clever!  However, they had used some black wire.  The florist wire seemed perfect for this project.)

 

How To Make A Papier-Mâché Snowman - Part 2

 

His eyes were painted with regular acrylic craft paint.  Since they were supposed to look like coal, they were painted black.  Of course, his carrot nose was painted orange.  Red paint, to match the plaid fabric, was used for the mittens and the earmuffs.  And, he now looks more like a snowman, doesn’t he?

 

 

 

 


How To Make A Papier-Mâché Snowman - Part 2 on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

A big crooked smile was painted on his face.  White twinkles were painted on his ‘coal’ eyes and white snowflakes brighten up his red mittens.

Frosty was looking a little too bright and new.  A waterbased antiquing medium by FokArt was used to take off the new look.  The antiquing medium was watered down with a wet brush and applied to the snowman in sections.  Then, the surface was quickly rubbed with a paper towel and most of the antiquing medium was removed.  It looks subtle but that is a good thing!

How To Make A Papier-Mâché Snowman - Part 2 on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

 

 

After the antiquing was dry, it was time to add some sparkle to Frosty!  A light coat of Mod Podge was brushed on, a section at a time, as glue and then clear glitter was sprinkled over the wet Mod Podge.

I have to tell you right now, looking at this little snowman really puts a smile on my face.

Next, using the Loctite Super Glue, the ends of his coiled band for the earmuffs were glued into the little holes made earlier.

The plaid scarf was the finishing touch.  I love this little snowman!  Another two are in various stages of becoming snowmen, too.

To make this  Papier-mâché snowman, first you’ll need newspaper and a newspaper sleeve.  Yep, I used the newspaper sleeve.  It seemed the right size for the snowman I had in mind.  Just imagine a row of these snowmen made from an item you usually toss in the trash…

 

How To Make A Papier-mâché Snowman on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

 

Since this was a little on the small side, I tore the newspaper in half and used the single sheets to wad into balls.  The balls of newspaper were then placed in the plastic sleeve.  When the sleeve was filled with enough of the newspaper, the plastic bag was tied in a knot.

I wanted legs to be visible.  Using masking tape, I taped the bag creating two ‘legs’.

 

 

How To Make A Papier-mâché Snowman on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

Then, a head was formed.  This was a more compacted ball of newspaper to create a round ball.  That was placed in the sleeve above the body and the knot.  Another knot was tied to hold the ball in place.

 

 

How To Make A Papier-mâché Snowman on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

 

As you can imagine, the head was a little ‘wonky’.  In order to make it more stable, I wrapped a piece of masking tape around it.  Awww, perfect!

 

Just like the pumpkins, strips of newspaper were glued to the shape with the Papier-mâché glue.  ◄ (You can find complete directions for making the glue and the clay here.  This makes a lot!  You might want to make half or a third of the recipe unless you are planning on making much bigger or a lot of these!)  I cut the strips for the snowman a little shorter and not as wide as the ones used on the pumpkins.

This was actually done in two settings, allowing the paper strips to dry and stiffen the figure a little before applying them to the head.  Take note, a few strips were applied to the neck area both times to help support the head.

How To Make A Papier-mâché Snowman on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

 

Once the paper strips were dry and the piece was completely covered, I felt the feet needed a better foundation.  This little snowman has to stand on his own, unsupported.  I had an empty cream cheese box and cut ‘soles’ for the feet from the cardboard box, glued them to the bottoms of the feet, and filled in the gaps with the paper clay.

How To Make A Papier-mâché Snowman on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

About two-thirds of the body was covered with the paper clay.  You can see the arms are beginning to take shape.  The little fellow was allowed to dry for a day at this point.  In order to hasten the drying, he was set next to the heat register in the kitchen.   (Yes, we already have the heater turned on this year!)

I learned with the pumpkins and the pumpkin stems, that you need to dry areas before applying too much of the paper clay or you might have a collapse.  The stems completely covered in one setting ended up having dropsy.  By covering the base of the stem, allowing it to dry, and then, covering the top, the stems had a better base.  They stand more erect.

Remember that.  You must have patience.  

How To Make A Papier-mâché Snowman on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

 

Once the lower body was completely covered with clay and dried, clay was applied to the head and some clay was added to his arms.  He was allowed to dry again.  The register expedited the drying process nicely.  He’s beginning to take shape.

The idea of having earmuffs on this little guy was inspired by a snowman at a local store.  The band across the top was a spiraled wire and for whatever reason, I just wanted to recreate that look.   It just seemed so clever!

To make them, two equal-sized balls were shaped, flattened, and applied to the wet clay on both sides of the head.  Placing the wet clay on the wet clay helped the two fuse together.  (I wanted definition between the ear muffs and the head.  The wet on wet clay helped create that.  You can blend the wet clay out onto the dry clay and it will adhere easily without a line but in this case, the definition was preferable.)  At this point, you can poke a hole with a toothpick on both of the flattened shapes where the spiraled wire will be attached later.  If you would rather, or forget to do this, a drill can be used to drill a tiny hole for it after the piece has dried.

After the Papier-mâché snowman dried overnight, another thin layer of the clay was spread over the head, smoothing out the clay, and subtle cheeks were formed.  You can see that a carrot nose was also shaped and applied to his face.  (Laying him on his back kept the carrot erect instead of drooping.)The eyes were shaped to resemble coal.  I tried to shape ridges on the edges to replicate the edges of chipped coal.  I’m not sure how successful that was but that was the objective.

How To Make A Papier-mâché Snowman on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

He was laid on his back to add the carrot nose, the coal eyes, and to cover the front with another smooth layer of clay.  At this point, he seems to resemble a troll more than a snowman but we are not done yet.  Another day of drying and working on the back will be the next step.

Part 2 will be posted in the next few days.  I can’t wait to get to the painting part and, ultimately, this little  Papier-mâché Snowman will be glistening, too.  Until then,
