Making a Snowman Door Decoration with Nature-Found Items

Using supplies we found around the house, we made this adorable frosty the snowman decor for my door.

Starting with a wreath form that was made at the same time as this pumpkin wreath form, we simply added extra elements to bring the snowman to life. I’m certain that dressing him was just as much fun as the kids have when they build a snowman!

One of the nice things about this snowman door decoration is that it’s not only for Christmas – he can hang on my front door for the whole winter season. Who wouldn’t want to be greeted by this cute and cheerful snowman when they come home?

How to Make this Snowman Christmas Decoration

Preparing and Assembling the Snowman Shape

Refer to our post on making a pumpkin wreath form to make this snowman wreath form. The steps are similar but even easier since you’re making three evenly sized circle shapes and then securing them together to form the snowman.

Once formed, it’s ready for the fun part: adding the details to make it look like an actual snowman!

Dressing up the Snowman Decor

Start by spray-painting the wreath forms in white. Make sure your surface is protected before painting.

Dried mulberry vines and spray paint can.

Leave it to dry fully before moving on to the next steps.

In the meantime, cut three pieces of twine measuring 20” long and then glue the buttons at the end of each twine. 

Cut a piece of fabric about 5” wide and 24” long. You can also use a piece of ribbon or an actual scarf! 

Once the vine wreath is dry, begin assembling the pieces.

Clip 5” long pieces of foliage and secure them to the wreath form using floral wire. Layer more foliage to add to the fullness.

Tie the twine around the “neck” of the snowman.

Tie the flannel fabric loosely around the “neck” as well.

Hang on your door to enjoy! Would you add any other embellishments to dress up this snowman door decoration? Perhaps an old knitted toque for the top of the head or more cedar sprigs?
