What You Will Need


  • Use your craft knife to cut the paper mache hat in half.
  • Paint a half of the hat with the black craft paint. It will probably take a few coats for complete coverage. Be sure to allow it to dry completely before continuing.
  • In the meantime, you can begin to assemble the wreaths together into a snowman. Use hot glue to secure them together. I also added a small scrap of ribbon to the back of each joint to have an additional surface for adding glue.
  • The smallest 6-inch wreath goes on top as the head of your snowman. Tie a length of ribbon around the “neck” under the head for his scarf. You can use more hot glue under your scarf to help to hold everything together.
  • Trim your iced branches to length with scissors and add them as arms with more hot glue.
  • Add red ribbon around the bottom of the hat as a hatband. You can also add a few holly leaves if desired. Secure everything into place with hot glue.
  • Then add the hat half to the top of your snowman wreath with hot glue. It will not stand up all by itself, so add a cut dowel rod to the inside of the hat as shown to help it stand up. Use hot glue to secure.
