Making a snowman is always fun, especially when it's as easy as this felt snowman craft! This is a fun ornament to hang on the Christmas tree, or give as a gift to a friend or relative.

This activity is easy to set up with just two materials - felt and a shower ring.(affiliate links)

  • A grownup might have to cut out the small felt pieces. Kids can help choose felt colors and create designs for building their snowmen.

  • If you don't have a shower curtain ring, you can bend a chenille stem in the shape of the ring.

Make the decoration any size you like, depending on the felt pieces you have on hand. It's a great use of felt scraps left over from other projects.
