Why do we like this project?

Who doesn’t love cute snowman crafts? Kids love them and they remain popular even after Christmas is over. The Snowman Felt Board is a great way to keep little ones occupied and encourages imagination, similar to our Four Seasons Felt Board, which are both popular with kids!

Just change the hat, nose and scarf and the snowman will be different. Here are a few different ways to dress up the snowman on this felt board that we are going to make.

What you will need to make a snowman felt board

You can find full printable instructions at the end of this post.

Making a Snowman Felt Board

  1. Cover the cardboard with white craft glue and spread it into an even layer using your finger.
  2. Cover more than half of the cardboard with light blue paint for the sky. Cover the bottom with white felt, overlapping the blue felt by about ½”. Do not glue the overlap down.
  3. Cut out two triangular tree sections from green felt. The green triangles can be inserted into the white felt “pocket” that overlaps the blue felt, this way the trees can be moved and your snowman can be repositioned. Cut clouds from white felt.
  4. Cut out one snowman shape from white felt, cut out another and glue them together. This will make your snowman a little stronger.
  5. Cut a nose from orange felt, stick arms from brown felt, and create accessories from various other colors. You can make a top hat, stocking cap, earmuffs, scarf, gloves (not shown), a bow tie, and buttons.
  6. Draw facial features out of black and pink Sharpies (hint: place a hat and scarf on before drawing to make sure you have enough room).
  7. Kids will be able to create different types of snowmen wearing different accessories!
