To make your snowman, you’ll first need to make two pom poms of different sizes, one for the body and one for the head of the snowman. Here we’ve made a 9 cm (3.5″) and a 6 cm (2.5″) diameter pom pom.

Assemble your Snowman

Take the two loose ends of each pom pom and tie them together using a simple overhand knot.

Tighten the knot so that the two pom poms come together firmly. Secure with a second overhand knot, and then trim off the spare yarn.

Decorate your Snowman

Make a cute pair of earmuffs for your snowman by rolling up the ends of a pipe cleaner and bending it into a U-shape.

Using craft glue, attach a twig to either side of the body of the snowman as arms.

Glue on two eyes and a nose to make the face. Here we’ve used some beads, but goggly eyes or small circles of felt also work really well.

Tie a small piece of ribbon or felt around the neck of the snowman to make a scarf.

You can also glue on some buttons, sequins, or felt circles onto the front of the snowman.

The options for decorating your Snowman really are endless! Here are a few we decorated.
