We have many Christmas traditions at our house. One of our favorite traditions is making homemade Christmas ornaments with the kids. If you’re looking for a fun project, try one or more of these easy snowman ornaments this holiday season.
In one of the houses we lived in a few years back, I put up a tree in EVERY room of the house. Granted, some were only 2′ tall. The small Christmas trees in one of the bathrooms had a snowman theme. Since we were on such a tight budget, we created most of the ornaments ourselves. Great memories!
I hope these will inspire you this Christmas season! Please join our 12 Days of Christmas Crafting Facebook Group, and share photos of any snowman Christmas ornaments that you’ve made!

Easy DIY Snowman Ornaments to Make
There are sooooo many different ways to make these. The best part of making these is the whole process can be enjoyed as a family. Add these to your Advent calendar in December for special family craft time!
I love the idea of melting snowman ornaments. I love how the snowman body is represented by the fake snow. These are the cutest little things!
These are so stinkin’ cute you won’t believe it. If you’ve got kids (or grandkids) around make this one. They can each make their own adorable ornaments. I love their little hats. Great gift idea!

I think I like these cute DIY Christmas ornaments even more than the first one. What a great idea to put a little scarf in the bottle. Use a green plaid fabric for the scarf and a red ribbon for the hanger for a more traditional look. (But I do like the unique color of this hanging loop.) I think this is a super fun way to make a great Christmas craft for kids.
