These wood bead snowman ornaments are the perfect Christmas craft this season! Because they are so simple, you can make several at once to gift to friends and family. This is even easy enough for the kids! No messy hot glue required!
Handmade ornaments are my favorite! If your like me, you have a whole tree’s worth of handmade ornaments from your kids. They have such a special meaning and way more sentimental that any store-bought gift.
The great thing about making something handmade is that you can customize it to your own style or the recipient’s style. I’ve got plenty of options (in all kinds of styles!) for Christmas ornaments that would make great gifts.

How to Make Beaded Snowman Ornaments
Supplies needed to make these snowman decorations:
Start by cutting a length of twine and knotting at the top.
Then, gather the two ends and wrap tape around them if desired. This will help you when threading on the wood beads. It is not required but definitely recommended.
Thread the end through three of your wood beads then remove the tape.
Tie the ends together a few times and trim away any excess twine.
Use your markers to add a snowman face to your ornament.
Just like that you have a cute ornament to hang on your tree. Keep going and make even more of these adorable snowman decorations.
Other ideas for decorating these rustic snowman ornaments:
- Before threading, spray paint the wooden beads with a bright color, glitter, or metallic spray paint.
- Purchase larger beads to make expressive faces. Decorate with googly eyes or make a smile with craft pipe cleaners.
- Glue a decorative Santa hat for something extra!
