They’re just so adorable hanging in a Christmas tree or around the house! And they’re a great project to make on cold, boring days. And it takes less than 15 minutes to make one wire snowman! These snowman decorations are also a good way to use wire that’s just hanging around with no use and an awesome way to cheer up the kids when they feel down.

My little one has been feeling quite emotional as we’re all going through a tough time with my dad passing away around Christmas time. Him and Ellie were super close and loved each other so much and him not being around at the most wonderful time of the year took a toll on Ellie. These little snowman Christmas ornaments were truly a blessing, they managed to put smiles back on my angel’s face and that says a lot about how awesome these are!

To make this simple ornament you need wire (or galvanized wire) cutting pliers, pliers (both round tip and flat tip) and white spray paint

Directions:

Twist the wires

  • Star by deciding how big you want your snowman and cut 2 wires of the desired length (I cut mine 100 cm = 40″ long, for each wire).
  • Twist them around each other, using your fingers or pliers if you are very handy (just like in this project).
  • From one end, start making a small “curl”, which will be sitting in the middle of your snowman’s body (use this short video tutorial if you don’t know how to curl wire).

Make the body

  • Make the body as big as you like (I made about 4 rolls around the small curl).
  • Once you get to the top of the body, secure the wire in place with a small piece of wire.

Make the head

  • Then switch directions to make a single circle for the “head”.
  • Secure the end in place by grabbing another small wire and twisting it at the part where the head and the body meet.
  • Clip the rest of the double wire with your cutting tool.

Make the hat

  • Time to make the hat. Grab the remaining wire and make a base, starting at one end and making a small loop.
  • Continue to the other side of the hat and make another loop of the same length. Bend the wire upwards, then sideways and downwards so you can create the body of the hat.
  • Once you reach the first loop, twist the remaining wire around the loop to close the hat. Use pliers to flatten the wire.
  • Attach the hat to the head with another small piece of wire and flatten with pliers.

Paint the snowman

  • Lay your snowman on a working surface and spray white paint. Start with the front, leave to completely dry, then do the back. You may need to spray paint twice for each side.
  • Attach a Christmas themed ribbon or twine if you like a rustic look, to the top of the hat and hang in your Christmas tree.
  • If you want your snowmen more festive you can use some glitter paint too.

Enjoy your holidays, everyone!

  3. This is such a cute idea. And it’s easy enough that it can be done with the kids. Also it’s frugal in that you don’t need a ton of money or supplies. Thanks for sharing with us. I like the name of your blog. Were you really a nautical person?
