Create your own snowman door decoration this holiday season using a mix of supplies found in nature (such as hanging mulberry vines and sprigs of cedar) as well as a few items from your crafting stash. It’s an easy way to add a whimsical touch to your Christmas decorations and all through the winter months.
Making a Snowman Door Decoration with Nature-Found Items
Using supplies we found around the house, we made this adorable frosty the snowman craft 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 the front door for the whole winter season. What a cheerful and fun way to be greeted when you 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.
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! Mine is hanging on a white door, but wouldn’t it be a fun idea for a darker colored door?
Would you add any other embellishments to dress up this snowman door decoration? Perhaps an old knitted toque for the top of the head, a faux carrot nose or more cedar sprigs?
