DIY - Snowman Doorman

Last night, our activity from our Christmas Countdown Basket was to

It was an easy activity to do with our 6-year-old daughter! My favorite part was that it cost us no money since we used supplies we already had at home! It was a fun way for us to make our front door a bit more festive without having to put a traditional wreath on it!

Snowman Doorman!

  • Construction paper (4 black, 1 red, 1 green, and 1 orange)
  • Christmas ribbon (any color you like!)
  • Coffee mug and small bowl
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  1. Trace a small bowl onto your black construction paper for the snowman's eyes. Fit both eyes on one piece of paper.
  2. Trace a coffee mug to create 5 circles for the mouth on the black construction paper (try to fit all 5 on one paper, if not, use 1 and a half. Save the other half and 1 whole sheet of black construction paper for the top hat).
  3. Trace a coffee mug to create 2 circles EACH on the red and green paper for the buttons.
  4. Using a ruler, create the snowman's triangle carrot nose on the orange construction paper.
  5. Cut everything out!
  6. Cut a 8.5"x3" strip from your leftover construction paper. Attach it to the bottom of a whole sheet of black paper to create the base of your hat. Then using your Christmas ribbon, cut a piece and tape it just above the base.
  7. Tape the top hat, eyes, nose, and mouth onto your front door!
  8. Then use the rest of your Christmas ribbon to create your snowman's scarf! We tied a little bow at the end of ours!
  9. Lastly, add the buttons below the scarf!
  10. Your Snowman Doorman is now complete! :)

Note: If you don't have Christmas ribbon for the scarf, you can easily make a scarf and do the trim for your top hat by using construction paper or patterned paper!

Vegas doesn't get very much snow, so this is a way for us to be able to make our very own snowman! Try to make your own Snowman Doorman with your family! It's a great holiday touch to any home and a fun project to do together! :)
