DIY Frosty the Snowman Wood Slice Ornament Craft

This year, we bought a package of unfinished wood slice ornaments to paint as one of our Advent activities and we’ve been having so much fun coming up with different ideas and designs. We’ve finally reached the end of the package and we still have so many ideas, so I think we’ll be buying a new package next year and building on our collection.

Our final design was a bit of an homage to Frosty the Snowman. You could make your snowman’s features more closely resembling Frosty’s with his red button nose and flower on his hat, but my daughter wasn’t a fan of the red circle nose idea so we went with more traditional snowman features.

You don’t just have to use these Frosty the Snowmen ornaments on your Christmas tree:

  • attach a magnet on the back for a festive holiday fridge magnet
  • use to adorn a snowman themed wreath
  • use as a unique gift tag
  • tie around a mason jar or vase for a cute holiday container

To make our glitter paper bows, we used this tutorial. You can also use pre-made bows to embellish your craft. (I will have a tutorial soon on how to make paper bows using a Cricut machine, soon!)

If you plan to use these ornaments year after year, I highly recommend using a craft sealant to prevent the ornaments from fading or being damaged in storage.

Materials for a Frosty the Snowman Wood Slice Ornament

Tip: paint pens make some of the detail work on these ornaments a bit easier than trying to use a small detail paintbrush.

How to Make a Frosty the Snowman Ornament

Remove the string from the ornament, if already threaded, and set aside.

Paint one side of the wooden slices white, leaving the bark edges unpainted.

Allow the paint to dry fully before adding Frosty’s features. Use this time to assemble your bow and hat.

Follow the directions here to make the bow. For the hat, trace a top hat shape onto your black card stock or craft foam. Cut out the hat shape and glue on a strip of glitter paper to serve as the hat’s band.

Using your black paint pen, draw on button eyes and a dotted smile and buttons for your snowman.

Use the pink paint pen to give the snowman rosy cheeks.

Use the orange paint pen to give the snowman a carrot nose.

Allow the paint to dry fully before sealing the craft with craft sealant, if using.

Glue on the paper bow and paper hat.

Restring the twine or use a pretty baking twine or ribbon for the ornament loop.
