Submitted by Anneliese Lawerentz
A visitor named Anneliese Lawerentz shared these directions explaining how she decorated a paper towel roll to look like an adorable snowman. You can use items similar to what she used to embellish your snowman or use whatever you have on hand.

  • Age Guideline: 5 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

Start out by painting the paper towel roll white. Let the paint dry. use more than one coat if necessary. Paint the top one or two inches of the paper towel roll black to be the hat. If you like, you can cut a small circle out of cardboard and glue it on top of the paper towel roll and paint it black too.

Anneliese decorated her snowman using tiny pine cones, seeds for buttons, wooden heart, and Spanish moss. You can use anything you have lying around to decorate your snowman.
