Supplies Needed to Make this Snowman Card
Only a few supplies are needed to make this card! You can even decorate your snowman with other features instead, like paper for the eyes or buttons.
- White Cardstock
- Brown Cardstock
- Orange Cardstock
- Pipe Cleaners
- Large Pom Poms
- Glitter Paper
- Small Black Buttons
- Googly Eyes
- Template – you can get the template at the bottom of the post on the email form that shows a preview of the template
What kind of glue should I use? Hot glue works best when working with pipe cleaners and pom poms. But for younger children, we like to use an extra-strong non-toxic glue like this one. Just make sure to let it thoroughly dry and press and hold for the glue to take.

Directions To Make a Snowman Card
1. First print off the template to trace around for the card. Fold over a piece of white cardstock and trace the template so that the top part of the snowman’s head is at the folded part.
The card should open up like this:
2. Glue a pipe cleaner and 2 large pom poms to the top of the snowman’s head to make the earmuffs. The pom pom should be big enough to cover the folded part of the card.
3. Glue on two googly eyes and a carrot nose from cardstock. You can use the printable template for the nose or draw your own!
4. Cut out and trace 2 strips from the template on glitter paper. Then glue to the snowman body. Trim around the outside body of the snowman if needed.
5. Glue on 2 small black buttons. Then use a black marker or sharpie to draw dots for the mouth.
6. Trace around the template arms on brown cardstock. Glue to the sides of the snowman body.
7. Now your snowman card is finished! Write a special Christmas message inside.
